I am hoping someone can offer some practical advise on the skin disorder Balanitis. About a year ago I received oral sex from a lady on a one night stand. However within days of the encounter I started to get a redness / soreness on the head of my penis. To cut an extremely long story short, I was diagnosed with Balanitis and put on to a treatment of anti-fungal / steroid creams. Unfortunately these didnít work and the redness spread to my foreskin and became even more uncomfortable. After six months of unsuccessful treatment my only option left was circumcision. I initially reluctantly took this decision (2 months ago) and thankfully this relieved some of the discomfort.
I am still in moderate discomfort now, but the redness has spread up the shaft of my penis.
I am not sure how long this will last, or how worse it will get but am preparing for the worst. I am hoping someone might have some advice on alternative treatments for Balanitis, and any creams / lotions that can reduce the discomfort. Am prepared to try natural creams or Chinese medicine ?? Ė anything really that might help . Suggestions please!
