Balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the foreskin) infectious.
As specialists in penile disorders, Dr Marois treat many boys and men with complications of balanitis. Balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the foreskin) are common problems in children and uncircumcised men. Balanitis refers to inflammation and swelling of the foreskin (the skin that covers the penis) and the tip of the penis (penis glans).
Balanitis or penile swelling usually occurs in uncircumcised men as a result of infection or poor hygiene. Balanoposthitis refers to more severe inflammation or infection of the glans and foreskin.
Balanitis is more common in men with diabetes. In men with diabetes, balanitis is often caused by Candida, a fungal infection. Balanitis can lead to phimosis, a tightening of the foreskin that makes it difficult to remove the foreskin. ( phimosis )
