What are the symptoms of balinitis?

The symptoms of balinitis include spots, rash, itching, discharge, pain during sex, swelling and/or inflammation of the foreskin.

What is balinitis?

Balinitis affects men only and is an inflammation of the head of the penis (caused from an overgrowth of organisms which are normally present on the skin of the head of the penis). It is a hygiene related condition rather than sexually transmitted. Balinitis usually occurs in uncircumcised men, so keeping the foreskin clean is important.
