Hi ,

Use a Fluconazole 200mg tablet once/weekly for 2 weeks & then review if more required at weekly intervals for a further two weeks...this assuming your liver & kidney are fine & do remember it is a precription drug & one needs to see a doctor.

Locally, use a 2% ketoconazole soap that you may use on alternate days to the affected parts but leave on contact for 10 mts at least while bathing. This will act as treatment & as prevention for the future & one may use it once/twice/week later.

Mix a topical plain antifungal eg Zimig (1% terbinafine ) cream & betamethasone cream 1:1 & apply locally twice/day for 5 days & then use the plain antifungal for a further 2 weeks.

Treat all your clothes/undergarments/fomites well & wash in hot water & dry well in sunlight (good antifungal). Treat your close partners & spouse et al also for best results.

Cheers & wish you a clear skin!

Dear Doctor,

I have been recomended same tablets and soap by fortis new delhi. I completed my course but it again comes back.

I do not consume any curd or milk, is it due to lack of lacto bacellus or should i consume any probiotic drink.

After meeting so many doctors & several tests , i still dont understand why this is not cured.

Kindly recomend and help me out.

Thanks for writing again.

Candida is a fungal micro organism that lives in the gastrointestinal tract.
This occurs when the Candida micro organism breaks out from the gastrointestinal tract and onto the skin. This is usually the most common candida infection, candida albicans.

Eat a diet high in probiotics such as yogurt and cottage cheese twice a day. Both of these have friendly bacteria in them that will get into your digestive system and help to reduce the number of yeast

Permanent relief of candida penis will only be achieved when the offending gastro intestinal tract is effectively treated, thereby eliminating the yeast infection at its source.

Unfortunately, many candida penis treatments deal with the symptoms and not the cause . Ultimately, diet is the only way of permanently curing candida penis.

Hope this information helps you. If you have no further queries, please close the discussion, rate the answer and give your reviews.

Wishing you good health...

Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?
