I am 24 years old, student. Recently, during a sexual intercourse I felt an acute pain after which I suddenly stopped. The next day I had swelling all around my penis. It seems like the foreskin has swollen. I was a bit worried so I visited the GP here who advised me to take anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory medicines. The dosage is over but the swelling still persists. The penis and genital area feels itchy at times and sometimes has a foul smell too. The medications recommened by the GP were as follows: Co- Amoxiclav 500/125, Aciclovir, Ibuprofen 400 mg.
I have a regular partner with whom I indulge in sexual intercourse. Is this a classic case of balanitis? Please tell me what to do.
