Hey

I know this is a fairly old thread now but I'm awake at midnight, googling this issue I've had with my Titan implant and found this thread shadows my same experience to the letter. I read through it thinking I had written it myself. I too have had the exact same issue post implant, same exposure to medication and the same issues with communicating my concerns to my surgeon and other health professionals. The glans for me look irritated, red and I have continuous pain. I've tried everything and feel like I'm getting ignored.

I'm hoping you may be able to provide an update on what's happened with you since you've posted this thread? Or whether anyone can please help.

Thank you

Hi Ezra.

Balanitis is a fucking nightmare, it's the whole reason I left my foreskin retracted which is what caused my erectile dysfunction... So don't do that!

I'm guessing, like me, you're not circumcised? My advice would be to have a circumcision and it can cure the Balanitis for good.

I plan on getting a circumcision just before I get implanted. In the meantime, the urologist has advised me not to get a circumcision done because it'll reduce sensitivity and make my ED worse. Pain in the neck foreskin as far as I'm concerned
British, 30 yrs old. New sufferer of ED caused by Paraphimosis in 2019. 100mg Sildenafil starting to fail me. Beginning to use Invicorp as advised by doctor. Taking 100mg Sildenafil every night at 3am to stimulate morning erections, good response so far.

I don't know the cause of your symptoms, as I understand them, as there can be quite a few. You didn't describe your condition in any detail.

I have suffered for years from a similar condition, not related to an implant as I don't have one. I am circumcised. I believe what I have is called Balanoposthitis although none of my doctors have used that term. For years doctors treated me with cortisone of one type or another. It was somewhat effective but required frequent use. Antibiotics as well as antifungals were also tried. Many doctors and years later my own research caused me to request a trial of Tacrolimus Ointment. It's expensive but a little goes a long way. It works well for me with most of my issue except one tiny spot that seems to prefer to be treated with cortisone. It will make the condition completely disappear but it isn't a cure and requires retreatment after a time. This drug has scary potential side effects listed but my newer dermatologist advised that those were for the stronger oral use of the drug.

I should clarify before you rush out and ask for a trial. I suffer somewhat mildly from eczema and psoriasis, which are both listed among potential causes of the condition. It can also be related to type 2 diabetes of which I'm borderline with. There are numerous other potential causes, many or most the same as with Balanitis. The point is that the Tacrolimus Ointment would be for cases related to autoimmune related issues like eczema and psoriasis often are. If that isn't your case then look elsewhere.

I'll also mention stress. Stress exacerbates the condition, which causes more stress, etc. Try to calm down and just methodically look for an effective treatment.

My issues probably don't relate to yours but I decided to post this on the outside chance that they do.

Good luck.

See a dermatologist. It is skin. I had a allergic reaction to a cipro drug Levofloxin prescribed for a lung infection. The skin on my glans and inside my mouth shed off and started to bleed. MY uro had no clue. My dentist ordered a biopsy for cancer. Your glans skin and mouth are different from your other skin. They are normally covered. I was circumcised at birth but type of skin is still different. Dermatologist prescribed Tacrolimus for both areas. There is one designed to be used orally.
