Recurrent Balanitis. Tried Clotrimazole and Miconazole. Symptoms persist and recur. Been 7 months now. Please advise.

If all else fails, sometimes circumcision is required to prevent recurrent balanitis, especially if you also have phimosis (restriction that prevents foreskin retraction). See your doctor. ...Read more

Yes: A family doc or infectious disease doctor could run a panel of tests to check it. I am not sure medical science is advanced enough to do anything about it. IVIG infusions are sometimes effective in patients with low globulins, but is terribly expensive, not covered by most insurance AND exposes you to the mercies of possible unknown blood born pathogens. Worth getting it checked if getting worse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Phimosis & balanitis: Phimosis means a tight foreskin, i.e. either difficult or impossible to retract. Balanitis is inflammation of head of penis, usually under a tight foreskin.
