In brief: Here are...

Key rx for balanitis is gentle cleaning ; drying the foreskin regularly, especially after each peeing plus timely ; thinly applying antifungal/steroid cream; definite rx is circumcision + good hygiene.
Note: remember to pull down the retracted foreskin after each cleaning ; drying; otherwise, paraphimosis may ensue - an emergency.
