Suffered with balanitis for about 3 months but am now cured and wanted to share.
Doctor prescribed clotrimazole, which I used for one month without improvement. Tried the oral anti fungal pill, didn’t work either. Coconut oil…didn’t work.
In the end, and just I was beginning to resign myself to never being rid of this horrible affliction…a new doctor prescribed me boric acid. It was in powder form and needed to be dissolved into 300ml of water, which you then soak the penis in for about 10-15 minutes with the foreskin pulled back. Just to be used once a day. This brought dramatic improvement that was noticeable just a few hours after first use (though I didn’t dare believe I had found the solution at the time). After 3 days the progress was undeniable and within 10 days I was as good as new.
The prescription is extremely cheap and, in my experience，very effective. Obviously there are many different causes of balanitis and I can’t guarantee this will fix yours, but if you have tried the traditionally prescribed methods and not seen any improvement, try boric acid.
Hope this helps somebody. If it does, it would be great if you could take the time to make an account and post on here to raise awareness. I did a lot of online research while i was looking for a cure and boric acid was not one of the numerous “solutions” I came across.
Wish you all the best
