Hello Fajri, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Swollen tip of the penis or head of the penis, known as balinitis, usually occurs in uncircumcised men, and the possible causes of a swollen penis in your friend are:
Infections of the penis due to bacteria, or fungi are usually due to the foreskin of the penis being dirty and moist. Cleaning the penis too much Irritation from soaps containing fragrances Allergy to drugs Sexually transmitted diseases such as syphilis, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis Should suggest to your friends to be examined by a dermatologist and venereal specialist, in order to get the right treatment according to the cause, because the penis is swollen or balnitis if not treated immediately can lead to the risk of complications of scar tissue on the penis, impaired blood flow to the penis, and narrowing of the end of the urinary tract opening. To determine the treatment of balinitis, the doctor will perform a physical examination directly.
Some suggestions for your Friends
Keep intimate organs clean Avoid using soap to clean the penis Avoid using damp or wet underwear Avoid using tight underwear Wash your hands regularly before going to the toilet or after going to the toilet Clean the tip of the penis every day especially if your friend is not circumcised Avoid changing partners Use condoms during sexual intercourse Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
