What Is Penis Infection?

Penis or foreskin infection is when the foreskin becomes discomforting and painful due to inflammation. It can be due to skin conditions, infections, or poor hygiene. Also, a person suffering from balanitis (inflammation of the glans penis) is more prone to posthitis.

Circumcision is the surgical treatment for penis infection. Circumcision is one of the best methods to avoid penile foreskin problems, and many parents choose to circumcise their children to avoid penis infection in the future. Although it is highly prevalent in children, adults can also opt for this procedure. However, it takes longer for adults to circumcise than children.

Penis infection is diagnosed and treated by a urologist. In most cases, penis infection can be diagnosed just by a physical examination and requires no diagnostic tests. However, they may recommend some tests to determine the cause of penis infection.

These tests may include the following:

  1. Skin test – A skin test for penis infection will help identify viruses and bacteria. In this test, your urologist will lightly rub a cotton swab over the foreskin and will then send the cotton swab to the laboratory for analysis.
  2. Urethral discharge swab – A urethral discharge swab helps recognize bacteria and viruses. In this diagnostic test, the urologist inserts a cotton swab about 3/4 of an inch into the urethral opening and gently rotates it. Your urologist will then send the cotton swab to the laboratory for analysis.
  3. Urinalysis – A urinalysis analyzes the visual, chemical, and microscopic elements of your pee. In this test, you will pee into a special cup, and the urologist will then send the urine sample to a laboratory for testing. Your urologist will look for different causes of your penis infection, like bacteria or high sugar levels, which can be a sign of diabetes.


The underlying cause of penis infection determines its treatment. There are several options for treatment.

  1. Antibiotics – Antibiotics are essential for people who get a penis infection due to bacteria. Oral metronidazole is often prescribed for the treatment of penis infection.
  2. Antihistamine – Antihistamines are highly beneficial if an allergic reaction causes a penis infection.
  3. Steroid cream – A person with a penis infection may require steroid cream to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin.
  4. Circumcision – One of the best treatments for penis infection is undergoing surgery. Circumcision is the surgical treatment for penis infection. While the purpose of circumcision is to remove the foreskin, it can be done using different methods. It is usually performed by the following methods- stapler circumcision, laser circumcision, and open circumcision.
