Both get checked: Some people are sensitive to resident bacteria or fungal infections their partner may be harboring. Not the same as a sexually transmitted disease, intermittent superficial irritations sometimes indicates a yeast infection. A condition called balanitis can ensue causing intermittent itching and irritation. In uncircumcised men the yeast can reside inside the foreskin and be passed back an forth. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Without further detail of the affected area and medical background, it's hard to offer an accurate assessment. At least, these sploches seem benign, non-urgent, and non- progressive. But for long term care, it's reasonable to get pro-evaluation and counseling so to decide if they're long-foreskin-related or not. If so, circumcision may be required. So, see urologist timely. ...Read more

Had protected sex & have balanitus after putting hand sanitizer on my penis in sept. no blisters. red spots on head,red Corona/foreskin.risk of hsv?

Probably not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause this sort of problem, especially when it lasts several months. This sounds like garden variety fungal (yeast) or nonspecific balanitis, very common in uncircumcised men. Probably not caused by hand sanitizer, even if that was just before the problem started. Retract foreskin and wash 2x daily w/ soap & water. See a dermatologist if it continues after that. ...Read more
