Balanitis is a condition of uncircumcised males. If the foreskin is not retracted and the penis not cleaned under the foreskin properly, infection and inflammation of the surface of the glans penis can occur. This usually responds very easily to gentle cleansing, antibiotic ointment, and perhaps an oral antibiotic for a few days.

Posthitis is inflammation of the prepuce (foreskin) for the same reason as above and is treated the same way.
