Thanks for the query

As you know thrush is an infection caused by fungus candida albicans

This can affect both male and female

Ideally, when one partner is affected, both the partner should be treated SIMULTANEOUSLY, even if the other one does not have symptoms. Or else, it is bound to recur at some point of time

If you are using canesten cream that contains clotrimazole, a topical antifungal, then yo are likely to be benefited by adding a oral antifungal drug.

Usually in such scenario , one can should not fiddle with the area to much on his own, not to apply to much force so as to open on your own, can apply local ointment (containing clotrimazole plus neomycin plus hydrocortisone) till you see your dermatologist. Do not indulge in sex till that time.

Prolonging the effective treatment might aggravate adhesions and fibrosis in and around. Therefore a quick dermatology consultation along with your partner must help
