Thrush, wash the penis daily but it resurfaces. Which medicine can be used?

Hi - I have male thrush. I am washing daily my penis daily to remove the infection , but so far I ve been unable to cure it. I am working away from home abroad and there is very limited access to medicines. The only cream the Clniic has is Bactroban which, I understand, is not appropriate to a yeast related infection. Anything else I can try other than waiting until I get home (next week) ?

I would be pleased to answer your question
Since it is a fungal infection I would suggest you to use over the counter anti fungal preparation called Canestan which you will be able to use.
Start using it twice a day and will help reduce the discomfort.It is no point using bactroban and please clean the area gently.
Thanks and take care
