What is Balanitis?
Penis infections frequently occur on the skin or in the urethra
Balanitis is the medical term for inflammation of the glans penis (head of the penis). Balanitis involving the foreskin is termed balanoposthitis. We usually just use the term “balanitis”. This is a common condition that may affect as many as 1 out of 10 males and can occur in males at any age. As a men’s health doctor, I see the issue of balanitis on a daily basis.
Most of my patients usually present with penile itch or pain, redness of the glans penis, penile discharge and difficulty with retraction of the foreskin. Tag: balanitis
