I believe i have Zoons Balanitis- i have all the symptons including the shiny patches over glan area (head of penis).
I have seen many doctors and 2 dermatologist who said it was Candida.
I am very clean and wash the area with quality moisturizer cream and dry it. I have used every oil potion and lotion imaginable with no positive result.
Anti fungles and steroid creams help but symptoms comes back in a week or so.
I have been dealing with this for over 7 years and to be honest I am very depressed. I have lost interest in sex or when i have had sex its been too painful. I feel that because of this I will never be able to enter another relationship as potential partners will suspect i have a disease.
My symptoms are ongoing pain across the head of the penis, burning and aching sensations, reddish patches as if the skin had peeled back.
I am in great health, no diabetes or STDs. I am late 30s and uncircumcised.
My question is are there any guys who have been diagnosed with ZB - then had a circumcision. If so what was your results?
Any other advice would be appreciated before i get the snip?
