Top 11 Balanitis Treatments You Should Know

Safe Sex

Sexually transmitted diseases and infections may lead to balanitis. Patients with STDs and balanitis may experience discomfort and burning sensation during sexual intercourse, extreme pain during urination, rash all over the body (especially in the penis), high fever, chills, and pain in the lower abdomen. In addition, bacteria, viruses, and parasites can cause STDs.

Unprotected sex increases the risks of developing sexually transmitted diseases or infections, especially those with multiple sexual partners. The common misconception is that STDs can only be acquired through vaginal penetration, but that is not always the case. Bodily fluids can also be transferred through oral and anal sex.

Choosing safe sex is the best way to prevent contracting STDs that may lead to balanitis. Using condoms consistently and correctly is one of the best ways to do this. Experts also suggest limiting the number of sexual partners as a precautionary measure to avoid STDs.
