Hi I am 17 years old and I have had balanitis for almost two years now, I have seen my urologist and had a surgery to loosin the foreskin which he believed would cure it. Now one year later I still have it and have used Lotriderm for the 2 years and am now on another cream(Clotriderm). I also have a curve in my penis that makes it bend left and downwards. I believe I have urethral stricture since the shaft of my penis does narrow nearing the end. I have troubles going to the bathroom and controlling when to go. Any soaps cause major irritation resulting in redness and itching. My doctor has sent me to the urologist again this time for pyronies disease but i do not believe this is correct, since i do not have a hard lump noticable. I would like your opinion on what the problem is before I go and see him next.

  • Two years!! Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phimosis and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balanitis of course. Best to see the urologist - general doctors can be very good with general stuff while knowing nothing else. I would think, only wash very often with Epsom Salts dissolved in warm water (not soap). It may keep you under threat for life, so if you need circumcision I'd say go for that. The sex only gets better, as it will allow more vigorous stimulation and far less worry. Possibly the bend is just due to phimosis. Many healthy ones have a natural bend when erect. Only a severe bend is a problem, for intercourse and/or if it blocks ejaculation etc. Yes a normal urethra is narrower at the opening and again at the base of the glans, about one centimeter in. But if you can't pee well (without erection) then it needs quite urgent investigation. If you feel irritation in the urethra, this can confuse knowing when to go pee. It can also become a major infection inside. It's no way to continue.
