  • Oral antibiotics if a severe bacterial infection is suspected
  • Urologic consultation if symptoms do not resolve rapidly

  • Careful hygiene, especially in those who are uncircumcised -- the foreskin should be retracted and the glans, including the crevice, should be gently washed with soap and water during daily baths/showers.
