Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. When you say "balanitis" are you referring to a skin infection of your foreskin? Head of the penis? Exactly where are you experiencing symptoms and what symptoms are you having? Redness, swelling, bleeding, pus? Are you circumcised or uncircumcised? If the first, are you still able to retract your foreskin all the way back and urinate freely? Thank you in advance for you reply.

Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Thank you for that information. You can continue to do exactly what you have been doing in terms of flushing out the skin with warm water and mild soap. Yes, Polysporin is a good antibiotic ointment to apply to the affected area, I recommend 3 times per day for the next 7-10 days. If the redness and swelling continue to get worse despite those things, and particularly if you are not able to retract the foreskin or urinate normally, I would then seek medical attention. Sometimes despite your efforts with the above, balanitis may need to be treated with oral antibiotics which require a prescription. Can I help you with anything else today?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
