Hey guys, I am a 46 yr old male who has suffered for many yrs with Balanitis. I saw several dermatologists & tried all kinds of ointments (prescription & over the counter) but none of that worked. So I finally gave in and had a circumcision done 6 yrs back. Even flew out of state to have a highly recommended urologist do the procedure. But, unfortunately, my condition only got partially better and my glans is still moderately sore whenever I touch my glans or my clothes rub on it. So I’m basically just smearing on Vaseline and wearing tight underwear whenever I exercise or leave the house. I’m also really missing my foreskin now. Needless to say, it is quite frustrating and it seems that very few doctors know how to treat this condition. My question is... does anyone else here have a similar experience or have you guys done anything that has helped when Balanitis fails to respond to Clomitrazole & surgery? I just got a prescription for a high priced cream call Cloderm but the ingredients sound like stuff i’ve already tried so I’m hesitant to buy it. I did also read somewhere that having a biopsy on the glans might pinpoint what exact strain of Balanitis I have but it’s supposedly very painful so i’ve been putting that off. But I would do just about anything, at this point, if it finally cleared this annoying condition up.
Anyway, any suggestions are welcome & thx for the help.
