|I had recurrent balanitis for 3 years. My doctor kept insisting on a circumcision. I searched the internet and read what it was like to be circumcised and made the appointment for circumcision. I read somewhere that keeping foreskin retracted can reduce the sensitivity of glans and make it more comfortable after circumcision. I started to wear the silicone ring like on wiki pictures:
After 3 weeks of wearing glans uncovered the balanitis was completely gone and I canceled the circumcision appointment. I wear the silicone glans ring all the time ,started this 2 years ago and have no problems since.
