Question: hello, i have a small white pimple like blemish under the head of my penis where my foreskin attaches (uncircumcised). i believe it might be a mild fungal infection only because my girlfriend suffers from frequent mild fungal/yeast infections. are there any tips? over the counter creams or oral solutions you can provide for me?

Thanks for writing to us
Given your history, it appears that you have a small granuloma due to chronic infection over coronal sulcus probably acquired through sexual contact with your girl friend who is known to have fungal infection. This can be confirmed only on clinical examination or viewing the photograph of a lesion.If possible, post a photograph so that I can make a definite comment on it.
Please take some anti fungal medication like a single dose of Fluconazole orally along with topical Gel like Micanozole for application at the site of lesion. Once we confirm the diagnosis, if it does turn out to be a fungal infection, you'll need to see a physician for a prescription of Fluconazole.
Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions.I shall be pleased to help you.
Thanks with Regards.

Hello I have a cottage cheese like discharge, foul smelling urine, and slight irritation on the exterior of my vagina. Im positive that its not an STD so im not sure what it could be. I thought it might be a yeast infection so i brought an over the counter medicine to cure it, It went away for about a week or so and now its starting to come back. Can u please tell me what this might be?

Hi, I am a 61 year old who recently saw my GYN, while there I told her I get a lot of yeast infections, I think because I am cortisone dependant, and antibiotics tend to give me yeast infections as well. I always was noticing an odor...she suggested a probiotic. I have been using a brand called Healthy Belly because it has Lactobacillus Acidophilus in it and states that inhibits the growth of candida. Well my health food store stopped selling it and recommended Florastor.....will this help with odor and yeast infections? Is there much of a difference

Thankyou! I suffer from chronic candidiasis, and although have been meds free for 6 years, I recently got vaginal thrush and have been treated with 100mg Fluconazole daily for 14 days. I also have psoriasis there, diagnosed years ago, which I found a natural cream for which usually works. However, the last few days it has been burning terribly, and the cream is not working/helping. I only finished the Fluconazole yesterday, so doubt its thrush. Can I try using hydrocortisone cream 1% or will that bring the thrush back?

I have been experiencing pain in my left side, and am very fatigued. I have brought both of these things to my doctor s attention. He tested my blood for a variety of things. My ultrasound came back clear and I am going for a CT scan in two weeks. He thinks it may be endometriosis. Since I have seen my doctor, I developed what I thought was a yeast infection from the antibiotics he gave me just in case it was diverticultis. I had pink discharge and since then, sex has become very painful. It feels like my vaginal walls are rubbed raw. Is this something I should bring to my doctor s attention before the CT scan?
