    There are many reasons that causes balanitis...
    from simple irritation to a foreign substances like condoms,lubricants,etc. to fungal or bacterial infection or even trauma...
    So, you have to look for the reason that is causing you trouble.

    If you're not sure...try to avoid foreign substances
    Maintain hygiene...wash you private parts with soap regularly & your hands too

    Circumcision may not cure but it may reduce the risk of recurrence.
    If it's causing you problem, I recommend you to go to a urologist.

    I would suggest a urologist. If you have recurrent balanitis which is not responding to medicinal treatment, circumcision is the way to go. Good luck.
