    The foreskin does not in itself cause balanitis, but it provides the warm, dark, moist atmosphere in which the infection can thrive. Getting circumcised to remove the incubation ground is the first step,towards curing your balanitis, but you will need appropriate anti fungal or antibiotic medications from your doctor to actually clear it.

    You may not be able to properly apply any creams until the circumcision has fully healed, which usually takes 6-8 weeks.

    Talk to your doctor for full advice and treatments.

    This is a very good question for your doctor. Random strangers on an internet chat site cannot answer this question...we have no medical history nor any idea of how your circumcision went. Your doctor will be able to examine and give you correct information on this issue.
