User:Hello Doctor
User:How can I help you ?
User:doctor i got married on Dec 27th 2012
User:in the first month i started with some infection on my penis
User:on the XXXXXXX
User:i didnt see a doctor and i left it like that, i googled and i think it is yeast infection
User:and then in couple of days it went off
User:and then after one month again i got some infection
User:this time its on the foreskin
User:the skin peeled off and looked like a rash
User:i didnt see a doctor again, it went off in a week
User:now my wife also has somewhat similar infection
User:Yes, fungal infections on the gentilia can spread to the partner
User:Now you may both may have to be placed on treatment
User:when i first got the infection, my wife said that its very common for newly weds to get infected
User:is that true?
User:Yes, it is common in newly weds
User:so what treatment are we supposed to take
User:I would consider you have to start with applying Cannestin cream to the affected areas
User:If the cream alone does not cur then you may have to be placed on oral antifungal medication
User:and one more thing, if the symptoms goes away does that not mean that its completely out of the system
User:infection may persist there in dormant form and may get activated in future
User:so how do we get rid of it completely
User:First you apply the cream I mentioned above for a period or a week
User:If you do not get any infection in next three months then there is no need to worry
User:If you get infection then you may have to visit your treating doctor to get oral antifungal medications
User:but i do not have any infection or any itching, burning symptoms now
User:but im not sure whether its smegma or not, but my XXXXXXX is all while in color
User:should i apply the cream over there too
User:I think it could be the infection
User:do not take chances
User:apply the cream
User:under the foreskin
User:Yes, exactly
User:ok doctor, i would do
