Cad is balanitis ann?

We commonly call cothromaithe a inflammation of the glans. Very often, the foreskin is also affected and in this case, we speak of balanoposthite.

These inflammations can be of origin infectious, irritative, allergic...

The fold between the glans and the foreskin is subject to maceration and the glans, weakly keratinized semi-mucosa in the absence of circumcision, is fragile and exposed to germs.

Thus, rare in circumcised, balanitis is a very common affection in uncircumcised, especially in case of long foreskin.
