What is Balanitis?

  Balanitis is an inflammation of the glans, or the head of the penis, due to infection or another cause. Balanitis is often uncomfortable and typically painful, however, it’s not commonly serious. It can be relieved with topical medication. It's an ordinary condition, affecting about 1 to 25%  uncircumcised males at their time in their life. Boys under the age of 4 years and uncircumcised men are at a higher risk, but it can happen at any age.
