Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.

If you had yeast infection of penis, more specific treatment with anti fungal antibiotics both topical and systemic preparations are preferred than Terrasil treatment.

There are many other factors predisposing yeast infection, like Diabetes Mellitus, prolonged antibiotics, immuno-suppressive drugs, steroids etc. If possible we have to either control or remove these predisposing factors. Otherwise yeast infection is likely to recur.
Instead of using over the counter products, consult your physician and confirm the diagnosis and get specific and adequate treatment for the same. This will be always safer and avoid recurrence in future.

Some sort of discoloration over glans penis is normal for everybody, not necessarily is to be in uniform color. But this also once again is to be verified by your physician or dermatologist.
So XXXXXXX your physician as soon as possible and get well soon.

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?
