Patient Comments: Balanitis - Symptoms

What were the symptoms you experienced with balantis?

Comment from: sunni, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: December 05

I'm a controlled diabetic and from last some months have been observing the problem of rashness / irritations on the foreskin of penis after having sex. The problem lasted for some 8-10 days after sex. I've controlled my sugar level by taking controlled diets and I have tried Candid cream (clotrimazole), which is very helpful to cure the same. But still, I think I have to get it cured permanently by taking antibiotics. I do not want repetitions of this.
