What is it? Men can get yeast infection of the genitals. Yeast organisms are a common cause of infection of the tip of the penis, a condition called balanitis.
How is it contracted? Almost from anywhere; nevertheless, one is more likely to get balanitis if you:
Incubation Period: Anywhere from 12 hours to five days
Symptoms: Itching or burning of the tip of the penis or the foreskin. A red rash on the affected areas
Testing: Physical examination of the red rash in the affected area.
Treatment: If you're uncircumcised, you can help prevent balanitis by practicing good hygiene. Each day, gently pull back (retract) the foreskin on your penis and clean the skin with soap and water. Then dry the skin carefully. You may also apply an antifungal cream periodically to prevent recurrence.
Treatment of balanitis includes:
Cleaning under the foreskin of the penis
Applying antifungal creams at least twice a day
Recurrent balanitis: Diflucan 150 mg one single dose
