Please allow me just a few minutes.I’ll reply to you back soon after reviewing it.
Thanks for your cooperation and patience.
Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.Thanks for all this additional information.I understand your concern.Well as you describe, Irritation in the area due to rough sex, friction, allergy from condoms can cause balanitis.Irritation can be caused also by:not rinsing the soap completely off of your penis after showeringusing scented soaps to clean your penisusing bar soap that dries out the skinusing scented lotions or sprays on your penisNow I would recommend some self-care measures likeDo a cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.And afterward, apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with 1% Clotrimazole cream twice a day.You should avoid frequent washing.And keep the area dry and clean.Wear loose fitted cotton clothes to prevent friction.Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for a few days.Abstain from sexual activity for a while.Avoid any scented soap, lotion on the affected area.
Motrin( Ibuprofen), Claritin (Loratadine), Hydrocortisone cream, 1% Clotrimazole are available there over the counter.If your symptoms will persist then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.
Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
I wish you good health.Welcome.Kind RegardsDr.Anil
