 Balanoposthitis - you need to find the reason

How and why begins balanopostit

Balanoposthitis is inflammation of the glans penis and the inner layer of the foreskin. The disease may begin with a mechanical or chemical irritation of the glans penis. This may occur when a high concentration of salts in urine (sand), washing the urethra or bladder Urinary bladder - structure and function  Urinary bladder - structure and function
   various medicinal solutions, large doses of any substance (including medication), who, standing in the urine irritate the skin of the glans penis. But the most common cause of balanoposthitis is an infection (genital infections or nonspecific infection that gets into the penis tissue irritation from other organs and tissues).

Depending on the cause disease causes balanoposthitis proceeds differently, as a simple inflammation, with severe irritation and erosion, with pustules, ulcers and even gangrene tissue. Sometimes the background of balanoposthitis is a rapid shrinkage of the glans penis and the foreskin, in other cases, the tissue in the area, by contrast, are growing. Despite these differences in the disease course and have common features.

The main symptoms of any origin balanoposthitis

The skin on the penis is very sensitive, so at the slightest sign of inflammation or irritation in the area there burning and itching. At the same time on the inner surface of the foreskin (between it and the head of the penis) visible redness, swelling and release of inflammatory fluid (if the fluid is purulent, then an unpleasant putrid odor). As a result, inflammation and permanent soak can peel off the surface layer of the skin, causing erosion occur on the surface and even ulcers. May increase the nearby lymph nodes. Reacts to inflammation of the entire body - may increase the temperature, there are weakness, fatigue, headache.

As a result of inflammation of the foreskin tissue edema is formed first, and then grows connective tissue that does not have the elastic properties, and the glans is no longer opened the county - a condition called phimosis Phimosis - whether to go to extremes?

Peculiarities of different types of balanoposthitis

Most often it occurs in the form balanoposthitis irritation and edema of the glans penis and foreskin - the so-called simple balanoposthitis arising under the influence of mechanical or chemical irritation or any kind of infection. The most common cause is a simple balanoposthitis candidiasis (thrush) of the genitals.

In some kinds of infections (caused, for example, certain infectious agents, developing the absence of air in combination with other micro-organisms) in the inflamed skin first appear large areas of necrosis, followed by extensive erosion - a rather rare form balanoposthitis - erosive krugovidny balanoposthitis. In some cases, the process moves to the erosive and ulcerative gangrenous. As a result, the foreskin can be formed hole and happen even complete death of tissue of the head. Overall condition in such a process can be very heavy.

At purulent processes can develop pustular ulcerative balanoposthitis with the advent of the foreskin and the glans penis large number of pustules with yellow heads, which after opening turn into deep ulcers, on the spot where the scars are formed after recovery, causing phimosis and paraphimosis.

Sometimes balanopostit proceeds with sharp pallor tissue, wrinkling of the glans penis and foreskin, and severe itching. The skin in this area has lost its elasticity, cracks therein that are overgrown with the formation of connective tissue and even greater loss of elasticity. This form balanoposthitis usually occurs on the background of hormonal disorders Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous  Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous

Diagnosis and treatment balanoposthitis

Balanoposthitis Diagnostics is a laboratory study of discharge from the area of ​​inflammation. When sowing them in nutrient media set infectious agent and its sensitivity to various antibacterial agents.

In severe forms of balanoposthitis appointed general treatment - antibiotics, restorative and immune stimulating agents.

If any form of the disease is assigned to local treatment: treatment of the foreskin and the glans penis with antiseptic solutions. Depending on the cause of the disease topically administered antibacterials, antifungals. If a violation hormonal or metabolism, then treat accordingly.

Required preliminary survey

If you suspect vaginitis woman have to be screened, which includes:

  • taking a swab from the walls of the vagina, cervix and the urethra (the urethra) - detection in smears of a large number of white blood cells indicates the presence of inflammation;
  • crop discharge from the genital tract in the nutrient media - detected the pathogen (or pathogens) infection and its sensitivity to various drugs, suppress the vital activity of the microorganism;
  • if necessary, are taken for allocation of PCR diagnosis (pathogen DNA is detected), and blood for immunoassay (detected antibodies to infectious agents) - both are relevant in the analysis of sexually transmitted infections;
  • blood on hormones - low blood levels of female sex hormones estrogen require correction, as it will support the inflammatory process;
  • ultrasound of the pelvic organs - the identification of various violations of the internal genital organs;
  • if necessary - consultation of immunology and blood samples for study the general state immunity;
  • detection and treatment of foci of infection, chronic diseases, intoxications.

Only the results of such a survey can assign adequate treatment.

General principles of treatment of acute vaginitis

Acute vaginitis, if the woman promptly sought medical help treat uncomplicated. But it is very important to establish the cause of vaginitis. If it is a sexual infection, it is necessary to treat not only the woman but also her sexual partner, or after the treatment she gets infected again. When genital infections (vaginitis caused by them are called specific) is also very important to identify and treat a laboratory control of all pathogens - are often mixed infections. For example, gnokokkii, chlamydia, mycoplasma and ureaplasma are often "hidden" inside the Trichomonas and can only be destroyed after the destruction of their cells. Treatment in this case is assigned strictly according to laboratory diagnosis. Assign antibacterial, antifungal, protivotrihomonadnye, antivirals general (systemic) action, taking into account the sensitivity of them pathogens.

Many women acute vaginitis occur against the backdrop of colds, after an overall infection, injury, stress, that is, against the background of violations of immunity. These are called nonspecific vaginitis - their opportunistic microflora, constantly live on the mucous membranes of the vagina. The fact that it caused acute vaginitis is associated with reduced immunity.

For the treatment of vaginitis are not always prescribed antibiotics, sometimes quite topical anti-inflammatory treatment, combined with the strengthening of immunity Strengthening the immune system - help the immune system  Strengthening the immune system - help the immune system
   and subsequent reduction of vaginal flora The microflora of the vagina: purity  The microflora of the vagina: purity

   from such treatment does not pass, then the local prescribed drugs (vaginal suppositories, creams) with antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory action. And since the vast majority of cases, these diseases are caused by a mixed infection, suitable for the treatment of combined drugs for topical application, such as terzhinan Terzhinan - accessible and efficient  Terzhinan - accessible and efficient
   and Polizhinaks. The composition of these drugs include antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory agents.

General principles of treatment of chronic vaginitis

Chronic vaginitis treated harder than sharp. Their development is connected or not finished the cure of genital infections (usually in the case of developing addictive pathogens to antibiotics and antifungal agents), or in violation of hormonal background (decrease the blood levels of estrogen), or with a decrease in immunity.

All these factors have to be identified and possibly completely or partially eliminated.

In order to identify and eliminate the causative agents of genital infections, the body often have to "shake" with special drugs. This makes the infection more active and manifest themselves in the form of an exacerbation. A worsening is always easier to treat - used drugs to which they are sensitive.

It is also necessary correction of hormonal women and immunity. After the treatment is required to appoint rehabilitation treatment using probiotics - it reduces the risk of recurrence of the disease.
