The condition can be uncomfortable and can occasionally cause pain while urinating. 1 X Trustworthy Source National Health Service UK Public healthcare system of the UK Go to source Balanitis is most common in uncircumcised individuals. While a case of balanitis may seem embarrassing or awkward there is no reason to feel this way it is a common condition and fortunately one thats relatively easy to cure with medicated creams. Wash under your foreskin with warm water every day. Many cases of balanitis occur when the head of the penis is poorly cared for and not washed as often as it should be. If you are uncircumcised get in the habit of washing your penis in the shower daily or at least 4 5 times a week. Pull back your foreskin and rinse it clean with warm water. Avoid using soap as that may irritate the glans. Take a salt bath to relieve itching and pain caused by balanitis. The glans of a balanitis infected penis is typically covered in red itchy blotches and is often swollen. If you find the condition irritating or painful try taking a salt bath to soothe the itch. Fill your bathtub with warm not hot water and pour in about 2 cups 400 g of salt. Stir with your hand until mixed and soak in the tub for at least 15 20 minutes. Apply a 1percent hydrocortisone cream to soothe the itch of balanitis. To use the cream squeeze out a dollop about the size of a pea onto 1 finger. Pull back your foreskin and smear the cream over the head of your penis until the red itchy areas are fully covered. Apply twice daily or as often as directed by your doctor. The cream will soothe the itchy skin and will reduce the itching and swelling over a period of 1 2 weeks. Continue to apply the 1percent hydrocortisone for another 7 days after the symptoms have vanished. Use an antifungal or antibiotic cream if your penis is infected. If your doctor believes that your balanitis is caused by fungal or bacterial growth on your penis they will recommend an antifungal cream such as clotrimazole 1percent or miconazole 2percent. To apply the medicated cream pull back your foreskin and squeeze a pea sized dollop onto the head of your penis. Rub it in using 2 3 fingers and roll your foreskin back down. Apply the cream twice daily for 7 days or until symptoms clear up. Try a prescription strength steroid cream to reduce inflammation. If your case of balanitis is caused by allergies or a physical irritant your doctor may prescribe a steroid cream to reduce the inflammation. Unless directed otherwise by your doctor apply a light coating of steroid cream to your glans once per day for 2 3 weeks or until the symptoms clear up.
