Natural Homeopathic Medicine for Balanitis

Balanitis is a condition where there is an inflammation of the head (glans) of the penis and the foreskin (flap of skin covering the glans). Balanitis can be painful but is not usually a serious condition. It is most common in uncircumcised men having foreskin around the head of the penis. Balanitis can be caused by infections from overgrowth of yeast and bacteria under the foreskin. Poor hygiene is the main contributing factor. Homeopathic medicines help in reducing the inflammation, swelling, redness of the glans penis and the foreskin very effectively. Apis Mellifica, Caladium, and Merc Sol are the top homeopathic medicines for balanitis.

Other factors that predispose a male to balanitis include not completely rinsing the soap from the penis while washing, irritation of the glans from chemicals present in perfumed soaps, lotions, shower gels, condoms or lubricants, uncontrolled diabetes, and reactive arthritis. Too much cleansing or over washing can also irritate the glans and contribute to balanitis. STI’s (sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea, syphilis), skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and some medicines like tetracycline can also lead to balanitis.
