Hello,

Thanks for your query.

Based on what you have described it appears that you may have genital mucocutaneous candidiasis. As this is more common amongst the persons with diabetes mellitus, please get your blood sugar levels done on empty stomach and 2 hours after lunch done to rule out the same.

Topical antifungal gels like Mecanazole can be applied over glans and beneath the foreskin after cleaning thoroughly. In addition I suggest you to consult a doctor nearby for careful examination. He/she can prescribe oral antifungal agents like fluconazole for better infection control.

Many a time focal fungal infection of the genitalia are associated with urinary tract infection. The burning sensation while passing urine is suggestive of the same. You could get your routine Urine test done when you visit your doctor's office. In the interim drink plenty of fluids and take cranberry juice twice a day.

I hope this answers your query. Please feel free to ask if you have any more questions, I shall be pleased to answer.

Regards
Dr.Patil

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

I was recently on a round of amoxocillin for a tonsillitis infection, when I also had a yeast infection present at the time of my visit. I was also prescribed diflucan, and took two during the course of the antibiotics (10 days) to clear the infection, and have been eating lots of yogurt and kefir everyday since. I ordered a swab test at the first visit which came back negative for candida, much to my confusion. However, after the two diflucan symptoms subsided. 3 weeks later the tonsillitis returned, along with a UTI. I was prescribed another round of amoxicillin, and I have been 5 days, or halfway through, my second round. About three days ago, two days in to the second round of antibiotics, I developed yet another yeast infection.. or so I thought. I have taken two diflucan, still taking kefir and yogurt, to no avail. I had noticed that the discharge had no yeasty odor, which is usually very obvious to me, yet the symptoms all pointed to the worst yeast infection I ve ever experienced. Tonight I tried a clotrimazole suppository from an OTC 7-day treatment pack, along with acidophilus supplements, and within an hour was experiencing an even more painful and itchy, almost burning reaction. Upon inspection, I noticed very severe swelling of the inner labia, and even a tiny bit of bleeding from the now completely raw, sore and swollen inner labia. It seems to be a reaction to the clotrimazole, which I plan to discontinue. I am curious about the possibility of a lactobacilli overgrowth, or cytotolytic infection, as a result of my overzealous consumption of probiotic foods. Even moreso, I am interested in finding a way to put this problem to rest! Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
