Balanitis is an inflammation of the head (the glans) and foreskin of the penis.
In balanitis, the head and foreskin become red and inflamed. In circumcised men, who lack a foreskin, these symptoms only affect the tip of the penis.
The inflammation can be due to infection, harsh soaps, or failure to properly rinse soap off while bathing.
Homoeopathic treatment cures balanitis completely. You can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.
Hello lybrate-user. Since you are suffering from itching in vagina, it is most probably due to fungal infection. First use canesten cream and if doesn't subside with that, consult a gyn before using lobate cream (as it contains steroid). Some general measures to be followed are
- wear cotton and loose underwear - don't repeatedly wash your private parts. Instead use a toilet paper/tissue.
- don't keep the area moist.
- drink plenty of water.
- check your sugar levels.
- try to lose some weight.
All these along with canesten cream will help.

Hello, Thanks for the query.
Tablet Glynase MF contains Glibeclamide an earlier sulfonylurea and Glycomet GP contains Glimiperide. Both are different. Can not be just replaced one for another. You have to talk to your doctor about the dosage when change is being made. Thanks.
Dear lybrate-user, do not take any medicine without doctor consultations.
Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas. Sweating also increases it. Your old clothes (mostly inner clothes), towels may also have fungus so change your fungus contact clothes after taking treatment.
Steroid based cream lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap.
If this does not relieve you can send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment
I hope you find this information helpful.
Stop using lobate
It increases ur problem
U have fungal infection
It spreads to other areas also
Have to use a course of tablets and creams for that to heal completely and permanently
Improve personal hygiene
Bath twice daily
Wear fresh cloths after bath
Reduce inner wear to increase ventilation to that area
Change towel frequently
Use seperate antifungal soap
Use cotton pants rather than jeans
