Q: What is the fastest treatment to cure balanitis?
A: Balanitis is usually caused by a fungal infection. I would recommend a combination of oral Diflucan and topical Nystatin to be sure this goes away most quickly.
It is most commonly cause by Candida-type fungus and would respond well to this treatment. You may obtain Nystatin-type products over the counter (ask your pharmacist if you need help finding). Oral Diflucan would require a prescription from your doctor.
