Welcome to Health Care Magic

Penile yeast infection is caused by Candida. You are taking thyroxine 100 microgram per day, Selomax 50/5, Taxlac 40 and you are also not diabetic. Following is the treatment for penile thrush-

- Maintain adequate hygiene. Don't use hard soaps or detergents to clean affected part.

- Apply Nystatin and Clortrimazole cream locally over affected area.

- Have plenty of Curd or Yoghurt in diet.

- Systemic treatments consists of many drugs as Fluconazole, Amphotericine etc. Fluconazole 150 mg only one tablet will help in eradicating the infection.

Hope it helps you, If you have more queries then you can ask again.
