I have some swelling on my penis and it's sensitive to the touch. I don't know if this is balanitis or due to rough sex.

Cannot diagnose: Without an exam there is no way in which to tell you what this is due to. See your doctor and get evaluated, diagnosed and treated. Good luck.

Swelling (Definition)

Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

Which type of UTI cause penis swelling?

None!: A uti, or urinary tract infection, is an infection involving the bladder (mostly) and the urethra or kidneys (less often). It can cause burning and pain with urination, urinary frequency and urgency. The penis should not become swollen with a simple uti. Penile swelling could be due to skin infections, trauma, or edema (fluid build up in the body).

After treating balanitis will my penis ever look the same? And what is the worst case scenario for long term untreated balanitis?

After treating balanitis will my penis ever look the same? And what is the worst case scenario for long term untreated balanitis?

Yes, it will heal: Balanitis symptoms often evolve over three to seven days. The condition may present as pain, tenderness, or pruritus associated with small erythematous lesions on the glans and/or the prepuce. These lesions can be ulcerated or scaly. Thick foul smelling purulent exudate is often produced. If not properly treated, this process can evolve into a tightening of the prepuce, known as phimosis.

Need treatment: Hi Joseph, This has to be uncomfortable. Have you been circumcised? If not you should seriously consider it because the condition usually progresses and removing the foreskin usually takes care of the problem. First, though, you should be checked for diabetes as that can cause balanitis. Good luck

8mm circle on penis, 9 months, just sometimes become sensitive that round after frequent masturbation. I was by urologist and he said that's Balanitis?

8mm circle on penis, 9 months, just sometimes become sensitive that round after frequent masturbation. I was by urologist and he said that's Balanitis?

Here are some...: Apparently, some concerns remained after seeing Urologist to whom you should refer this question since s/he can have a direct look. Clinically, the described lesion in a 22-y-o man is more likely associated with long tight foreskin-related inflammation/infection or psoriasis or lichen sclerosis or eczema, etc. So, go to and ask the Dr. Timely.

Suffering from balanitis, was prescribed timodine cream but failed to cure the condition, penis glans are inflamed and very dry & shiny in appearance?

Suffering from balanitis, was prescribed timodine cream but failed to cure the condition, penis glans are inflamed and very dry & shiny in appearance?

Castellani solution: If your pharmacy or chemist does not have it, they can make or obtain it. Get the clear, modified version. It will clear very quickly. Your product was worth a try but is not much good. Balanitis is due to tiny amount of URINE fermenting under your foreskin. Rinse off daily, best in a shower. Always blot or wash off the last drop of urine after you go. A circumcision will end the problem.

Chances of one having herpes without any blisters or sores but balanitis on foreskin and penis head?

Chances of one having herpes without any blisters or sores but balanitis on foreskin and penis head?

I wouldn't think: The chances are high...those ulcerated lesions are very commonly present in herpes. Balanitis is swelling and inflammation of the foreskin. It's main cause is suboptimal hygiene in the uncircumcised. Symptoms will usually resolve when you rinse (unscented) soap completely off the penis. Low dose OTC topical steroid or anti fungal cream may help. Rarely are other antibiotics needed. USE CONDOMS!

Hi there does hydrocositrone 5% cream treat soreness & pain & burning on penis & under foreskin of balanitis?

Wrong treatment: Balanitis is due to tiny amount of urine fermenting under foreskin. Rinse under the skin with tap water twice a day. Remember to blot away that last drop of urine after you pee. Castellani solution is best remedy. Circumcision is cuative.

Could excessive and rough masturbation cause balanitis penis aches after masturbation and is in pain and is red and scarred and appears swollen?

Could excessive and rough masturbation cause balanitis penis aches after masturbation and is in pain and is red and scarred and appears swollen?

Certainly can be: That certainly could be the cause (though I'm not sure what you mean by "scarred"). If the symptoms don't resolve after stopping for a few days, I would certainly recommend seeing a physician to make sure nothing else is going on. But swelling and redness can definitely occur on the penis just like they can on any other body part that is used "excessively." good luck to you!

I've been using Clotrimazole for 2 days to treat balanitis. It's creating a warm tingle and I've noticed more visible veins showing on my penis.

I've been using Clotrimazole for 2 days to treat balanitis. It's creating a warm tingle and I've noticed more visible veins showing on my penis.

Need more info: I don't think that the clotrimazole is causing the warm tingle unless you are experiencing a mild allergic sign. I think it is time to consult with a dermatologist and make sure that you do indeed have a fungal infection.

I have mild chronic balanitis, antifungal cream didn't work, awaiting swab results. Will I get gangrene and penis amputation? I'm seeing urologist soon

Of course not: Balanitis, phimosis, is due to fermentation by bacteria in tiny drops of urine under the foreskin. Shower daily, retracting the skin to rinse it off. Whenever passing urine, keep the skin back for a moment and blot off the urine from the area. Castellani solution (clear) is very effective. You will need to request it from the pharmacist. A circumcision is routine, quick and easy, always cures it.

Just under penis head/on shaft, looks like a small water blister the skin tears a bit not bleeding, neg herpes test, treated for balanitis w/no change?

Just under penis head/on shaft, looks like a small water blister the skin tears a bit not bleeding, neg herpes test, treated for balanitis w/no change?

Doubt herpes or STD: It's impossible to guess about the cause of this, but I agree this doesn't sound like herpes or any other STD. The large majority of genital skin problems aren't STDs. The doctor or clinic treating your balanitis is by far in the best position to figure this out and give reliable advice. Good luck with it.

Had the following symptoms for 7 months: pain at tip of penis, testicle pain, lower back pain, painfull ejaculation. Treated for 2 UTI & balanitis.

Prostatitis: Most common diagnosis with those symptoms is prostatitis. Often requires a long course (4-6 weeks) of antibiotics. See a urologist.

I get red spots/balanitis on my penis head after sex/masturbation. Mostly disappears in a day. My partner is clean. I am uncircumcised. Is it std/rash?

STDs: The best way in which to obtain an answer to your question is to have a professional examine the rash and test you accordingly. Good luck.
