: 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!
I can sum it up in two words..... Primrose Oil..... Kyolic or Nurtite brands Other brands will not give same results. Be patient, anything natural may take time. Primrose is great for any skin irritation. Exema ect. Also see your Dr.
