Ayurvedic Treatment for Balanitis | Herbal Remedies

Can men get infections? Yes, men can get infections, too which can lead to a condition known as – Balanitis (inflammation of the head of the penis). Yeast infections in men are common because the fungus Candida that causes infections is generally present on the skin. Overgrowth of Candida due to some contributing factor such as – having sexual intercourse with a female who has a vaginal yeast infection can result.

Balanitis is more common in uncircumcised men. Penis problems in males can be a sign of an underlying health condition. Health issues that affect penis also impact other areas of life causing relationship problems which lead to stress and also harm self-confidence. In men, who are not circumcised, that area is covered by a flap of skin known as prepuce or foreskin. Balanitis can occur in both circumcised and uncircumcised men but it occurs more commonly in men who are not circumcised. Young boys are affected only if they have a very tight foreskin which is difficult to pull back. If man and his partner both have symptoms of a yeast infection or bacterial infection, it is important to be treated. According to modern medicine, most male yeast infections are easily treated with over-the-counter anti-fungal medications like-Clotrimazole (Mycelex, Lotrimin), various anti-biotic creams but it can be treated naturally with many herbal remedies as herbal remedies work on the root cause of the disease.

A variety of infections and skin conditions can cause balanitis. These include

  • Sexually transmitted diseases such as – herpes simplex.
  • Benign (non- cancerous) skin.
  • Irritation of the skin by soap, spermicidal jelly or detergents.
  • Infections with yeast (Candida) that live on the skin (most common cause).

Signs and symptoms of Balanitis are

  • Redness/Itching or burning sensation on the penis.
  • Areas of shiny and white skin on the penis.
  • Moist skin on the penis with areas of thick and white substance collecting in skin folds.

Men more likely to develop Balanitis from a yeast infection if they

  • Use of antibiotics for prolonged time
  • Have diabetes especially if the blood sugar is poorly controlled as high blood sugar causes elevated amounts of sugar in the urine and sugar- rich urine that dribbles on the glans provides a friendly environment for yeast and bacteria and people with poor control on diabetes have a harder time fighting infections.
  • Have an impaired immune system
  • Are over-weight
  • Aren’t circumcised
  • Practice poor hygiene

Diagnosis of Balanitis

Doctor can recognise balanitis immediately. A swab or scraping of skin is examined under a microscope. When balanitis doesn’t respond to treatment or appears different from a typical infection, then doctor may recommend a patient to see a dermatologist or skin biopsy is done.

Prevention – Men who are uncircumcised must practice a good hygiene and people with diabetes can prevent balanitis by controlling their blood sugar.

Causes of Balanitis according to Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, balanitis results due to imbalance of Pitta and Kapha doshas. There are various herbs in Ayurveda that treat infections in a very effective way.

Volek_sparemuscle

The 21st chapter of Charak Samhita Chikitsasthana is one of the most important chapters of Ayurveda as it deals with the process of obesity, its treatment, how to gain weight, importance of sleep and much more. It also deals with the eight types of undesirable body constitutions. There are various herbs which help to gain weight naturally.

  • Ability to stand hunger, thirst , heat of the sun.
  • Ability to stand cold and physical exercises.
  • Ability to digest and assimilate food properly
  • Good musculature body.
  • In Ayurveda, causes and treatment of lean body is also described.

  •  Consumption of food and drinks that are dry in nature.
  • Grief
  • Excessive Panchkarma therapies
  • Low digestion strength
  • Suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome/ Ulcerative Colitis
  • Heredity
  • Old age
  • Continued illness

Features of the lean person

  • Cannot withstand excessive cold/heat.
  • Cannot withstand heavy physical exercise.
  • Muscle wasting
  • Suffering from cough/cold
  • Suffering from piles and the diseases of the duodenum and small intestine.

The body parts of lean person like – neck, abdomen are emaciated and veins are prominent underneath the skin. The joints are prominently seen and the man appears to have bone and skin only.

Digestion Strength according to Ayurveda

Weight gain largely depends upon the digestion fire of an individual. If an individual is taking so much nutritious diet but his/her digestion strength is weak, then intake of nutritious diet is of no use. So, strengthening the digestive fire is of utmost importance in order to gain weight. Ayurveda is based on the concept of Tridoshas -Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Like Tridosha control all parts of the body, they also control Agni – the digestive fire. Food provides nourishment to body and tissues and it is the reason for Ojas, complexion and strength. But it is the Agni that plays a vital role in this connection because tissue elements like – Ras etc. cannot even be formed by undigested food particles if Agni (digestive fire) is not present and extinction of Agni leads to death. It’s proper maintenance that helps an individual to live longer and its impairment give rise to diseases. Therefore, Jatharagni is considered to be the root or the most sustaining factor of living beings.

Management of leanness according to Ayurveda

By proper sleep – Like the night of destructions, ultimately and excessive sleep and prolonged vigil (waking up at night), take away both happiness and longevity but the sleep which is properly enjoyed brings about happiness and longevity in human beings.

  • By avoiding tension/stress in day today’s life and by being joyful.
  • By improving the Jatharagni (digestive fire)
  • By the gain of qualities like – contentment/tranquillity of mind/ absence of anxiety in one’s life.
  • Regular oil massage with plain sesame oil. It helps to improve muscle strength, relaxes the body and relieves stress.
  • Intake of curd, cow’s ghee, milk, sugarcane, rice, black gram etc.
  • Use of Soy bean in diet.
  • Regular use of little quantities of spices such as- garlic, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, clove and black pepper in diet as it helps in improving appetite.
  • Clearing the intestine from worms.
  • Avoid excess physical exercises. Limit your exercise schedule to 15 minutes only.
  • By the elimination of Doshas in time and administration of rejuvenating and aphrodisiac drugs remove emaciation bring out nourishment in the body.
  • Freedom from anxiety about any work, intake of nourishing diet and adequate sleep makes the person fatty like a boar.

By this, the equilibrium of Dhatus ad strength are maintained and the Kapha nourishes the organs and ensures longevity.
