Balanitis / Balanoposthitis / Infected Head of Penis

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homeopathic treatment let us first discuss the conventional or allopathic treatment available.

In the conventional or allopathic treatment antibiotic ointments and / or steroid ointments are prescribed to treat balanitis or systemic (oral) antibiotics are recommended. Pain medications are used to alleviate pain and tenderness.

In the conventional / allopathic treatment systemic drugs are prescribed according to the causative agent. Local applications are widely used which can result in itching, irritation and pain in the organ.

Contrary to the conventional medicine, the action of homeopathy is much safer, deeper acting, and results much longer lasting by energizing the body's curative powers and are not dependant on the causative organism.

Homeopathic remedies act as strong anti-inflammatory medicines which boost up the immune system of the body by escalating the number of specialized white blood cells called T-lymphocytes that are vital in the body's defense against certain bacteria, fungi, viruses and cure balanitis.

In severe cases where phimosis results surgery may also be required.

In contrast homeopathy medicines have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect which treat the infection from the root, prevent further recurrences, prevent complications and saves you from a surgeon’s knife.

A study carried out at Bristol Homeopathic Hospital, UK, has revealed that more than 70% of patients with chronic diseases said homeopathy helped them feel better. The 6-year study involved over 6,500 patients.

There are 65 homeopathy medicines which give great relief in balanitis / balanoposthitis / infected head of penis. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same surgery or drugs although trade name may be different.

What is balanitis / balanoposthitis / infected head of penis

Balanitis is an inflammation of the head (the glans) and foreskin of the penis.

It generally affects uncircumcised males. These are men who have a foreskin, which is the "hood" of soft skin that partially covers the head 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.

Several other diseases, including reactive arthritis and lichen sclerosis atrophicus, can lead to balanitis.

Men with uncontrolled diabetes are at risk of developing it.

Causes

  • Poor hygiene under the foreskin
  • Irritation from condoms, spermicides or clothing
  • STDs (sexual transmitted diseases)
  • Yeast infection
  • Bacterial infection

Common pathogens

  • Candida albicans
  • Trichomonas vaginalis
  • Chlamydia trachomatis
  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae
  • Treponema pallidum (syphilis)
  • Herpes Simplex Virus
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Streptococcus species
  • Staphylococcus aureus

Symptoms

  • Redness of foreskin or penis
  • Other rashes on the head of the penis
  • Foul smelling discharge
  • Painful penis and foreskin

Diagnosis

Balanitis is usually diagnosed based on a brief physical examination. The doctor may take a sample of the discharge (if any) to determine the nature of the possible infection. A urine test may be recommended to evaluate glucose (sugar) levels in the urine.

Complications

Recurrent bouts of balanitis may cause scarring of the preputial orifice; the reduced elasticity may lead to pathologic phimosis.

Prevention

Good hygiene can prevent most cases of balanitis. During bathing, the foreskin should be retracted to adequately clean and dry the area beneath it.

*In April 2009 I consulted a urologist with complaint of tight penile foreskin & white patches inside penile foreskin. Urologist diagnosed it as “Early BXO or Balanitis xerotica obliterans, tight prepuce, phimosis” and suggested circumcision with meatal dilation.

I underwent circumcision with meatal dilation. This improved the little white patches that were left on the glans penis. Then after some time I started observing that the urethral opening was getting blocked by membrane like layer occasionally. Sometimes I noticed white milky secretions from the urethral opening. Also now the side of the urethral opening is a bit swollen and red.

I consulted the urologist again. He diagnosed me again with balanitis and meatal stenosis. Suggested to do self dilation with meatal dilator for 2 weeks and if situation does not improve, then to consider surgery (Meatoplasty).

I understand that balanitis or BXO is still and is causing the white milky secretion and reducing the skinelasticity and indirectly making the urethral opening smaller which could later create more complication affecting the urination, bladder & kidney. From your site, I came to know that balanitis, urethral stricture & variants can be successfully treated with homeopathy.

After 40 days of treatment: The situation has improved and has started showing improvement. The secretion of white milky liquid has reduced; though secretion is there, but is not forming the membrane like layer anymore. Actually I can notice the milky secretion only if I urinate after a gap of say 4 hours. The texture of the skin around the urethral opening has changed (I would say improved) - few of the white patches have turned brownish. The urethral opening is keeping dry unlike before start of medication when the milky liquid used to start secreting within 15 minutes of urination and kept the area wet.
