You can treat balanitis yourself by keeping some basic hygiene guidelines. If a baby suffers from this balanitis, make sure to change their diapers frequently, and abstain from cleaning this area of their body with wet wraps. Someone with this condition needs to wash the affected area in warm water and avoid bringing it into contact with soaps or shampoos that worsen the irritation. To maintain bodily cleanliness replace regular soap with one of the emollients available from your local pharmacy.
