It has been reported as a source of fever and bacteremia in neutropenic men and candidal balanitis may be especially severe in patients with diabetes mellitus... Symptoms and signs vary according to etiology... Balanitis is a descriptive term covering a variety of unrelated conditions, the appearances of which maybe suggestive, but should never be thought to be pathognomonic, and biopsy is sometimes needed to exclude premalignant disease... The objectives of management are: To minimize sexual dysfunction To minimize urinary dysfunction To exclude penile cancer To treat premalignant disease To diagnose and treat sexually transmitted disease... Predisposing factors include poor hygiene and over washing, over-the-counter (OTC) medications, as well as nonretraction of the foreskin Many cases of balanitis seen in practice are a simple intertrigo; that is, inflammation between two layers of skin with bacterial or fungal overgrowth Rapid resolution can be achieved most frequently in practice by advising the patient to keep his foreskin retracted if possible, having advised him of the risk of paraphimosis Saline baths are also useful and medicated OTC talcum powders are helpful in drying the area... This advice is simple, but compliance may be challenging Many patients will present having tried antifungal creams, often obtained OTC... Such cases usually come with relapse... The simple measures have a more durable effect HIV should be ruled out in every case not responding to therapy/having atypical presentation.
