Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.
Balanitis is the inflammation of the penis head.
It can be due to following reasons.
Balanitis is usually caused by a fungal infection. I would recommend a combination of oral Diflucan and topical Nystatin.
Oral Diflucan would require a prescription from your doctor.You can visit your primary care doctor for prescription.
Also you should get your blood sugar levels to rule out diabetes.
Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.Please use the REPLY/SEND BUTTON to reply back to me. Thanks.
Your primary care doctor should be able to give you prescription after examination in person.
If PCP is not sure he can refer you to a dermatologist.
