Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
1. I would like to know why this soap was advised to you.
You can use any other soap as well.
2. Sweating has no relation to treatment of fungal infection withing body.
You can take oral anti fungal like fluconazole to treat this fungal infection.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Waiting for your responses.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
take fluconazole

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the follow up.
Fluconazole is the best treatment for candida but the treatment is bit long.
You might get relief with just one tablet but you must continue it for at least 2 month to get complete cure.
The dose is 150 mg per week for 8 weeks.
Just complete this course, you will be fine.
Thank you

Hi Dr. About 6 months ago, I noticed a white, sticky, fluffy discharge from my anus when I go to the toilet in the morning. The discharge is usually attached to my stool and the amount varies. It is not painful at all. I visited my local Health 4 Men clinic. I was treated for STI’s with an antibiotic. I was also treated for a possible anal fissure with suppositories. However, the discharge is still present in my stool. Lately, my anus is often itchy and the past week the tissue around the anus was tender and red. I treated it with an anti-fungal cream and it has now cleared up. For the past 2 weeks, I have been experiencing some slight abdominal pain (just below the left rib cage). This said, I was wondering whether I don’t perhaps have a Candida infection?

I urinated and wiped, from front to back, earlier today. There was a few pices of tissue that came out. One looked like a small pink string. Then an off white colored clump. And then a flat sack looking piece of tissue about the size of a dime. My cycle is supposed to start tomorrow. I have no symptoms of yeast infection. No odor or itching. When I had sex yesterday, it was creamy white, but no discharge all month. I have sore breasts and migraines, nauseous and very tired. What could this possibly be?
