Generally, the treatments for Balanitis would vary and it depends on the root cause and severity of the skin inflammation. In some cases, the physicians would normally let patients know of the things to avoid and would advise the patient with details on proper hygiene as poor hygiene can be one of the causes of the development of Balanitis.
If the skin irritation is basically due to an allergic reaction, a simple treatment as a steroid cream can easily do the healing. A steroid cream can alleviate the swelling and inflammation of the glans of the penis. On the other hand, if it is caused by a yeast infection or what is called as candida, there are anti-fungal creams available as well. Moreover, if the patient is sexually active, his sex partner should also receive treatment. During the whole treatment process, the patient should also withdraw from any sexual activity.
