Воспаление крайней плоти и головки полового члена - баланопоститBalanoposthitis is called the combined inflammation of a prepuce and a balanus. At the localized inflammation only of a prepuce the disease is called "posthitis", and the isolated inflammatory process only of a balanus is called as "balanitis".

To balanoposthitis most often leads insufficient respect for hygiene of generative organs to a delicate male disease. As a result of it under a prepuce the ideal environment for reproduction of streptococci, stafilokokk, colibacillus and other causative organisms is formed.

The infection can get on a penis of the man during the unprotected sex if the partner has a vagina dysbacteriosis. Also infectious infection of a balanus at oral or proctal contact is possible. Allergic and toxic forms of a balanoposthitis meet much less often.

Among the factors provoking development of a balanoposthitis call also a phymosis (narrowing of skin of a prepuce). This disease leads to an incomplete exposure of a balanus and, therefore, to its insufficient hygiene.
