Balanitis is a swelling or an infection in the glans or head area of the penis. In men who did not undergo circumcision, this part of the penis is usually covered with a fold of skin which is also called as the prepuce or the foreskin.

Moreover, Balanitis is a kind of penis disorder that does not only occur in men who are not circumcised but it can also occur in men who have been circumcised already. There are many men who can develop this penis disorder but this illness most likely occurs in men whose prepuce or foreskin is too tight that it is hard to pull the fold back or even those who simply have bad hygiene.

Furthermore, diabetes can also contribute for a man to have Balanitis specifically if the blood sugar level is not properly managed. People who have uncontrolled diabetes are the common ones to have a more difficult time staying away from infections.
