Since Candid was working, it indicates that balanitis is caused by fungal / yeast infection. Even controlled diabetes will predispose for the fungal infection.

1) You may confirm this by fungal culture.

2) Your doctor can prescribe you oral antifungal as well as local application fungal cream/ointment.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
