Uncircumcised, I developed Balanitis a year ago, I went to the dermatologist and he prescribed Cantesten and corticosteroids, didn't help. He mentioned circumcision, I ran away. Then I tried Lamisil and worked a bit, applying to the glans regularly it would take away a big part of the redness. Then I decided to find another dermatologist, three months ago. He explained that I had Balanitis and that Lamisil was helping because of the cream itself, not because of the antifungal properties, as this was not a fungal infection. He recommended a German ointment called Tanolact (I live in Germany). Tanolact helped a lot more (so far is the best cream I tried), but it didn't get rid of Balanitis completely. Sometimes, I pull my foreskin and my glans look almost normal, but as soon as I apply a bit of pressure to the glans I can see the redness. Basically it improved A LOT, but not back to my normal penis. In two days I have a follow up with my dermatologist, let's see what he says.
