Balanitis: You should see a physician in person. Balanitis can be due to both bacterial and fungal sources, and it may indicate that your Type 2 Diabetes is out of control. Make sure you are safe by visiting your doctor, getting a diagnosis and the proper treatment which may include oral medication and/or a prescription strength cream. Good luck. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000862.htm
