    What causes recurring yeast infection of foreskin?

Posted on Mon, 3 Nov 2014 in Urinary and Bladder Problems
Question: Hi, I am 19 years old and uncircumcised. I get reoccurring yeast infections that last for weeks and cause much discomfort and complications. I just want to ask a few questions: does insurance cover the procedure since it is related to my health? If not how much does it cost in the XXXXXXX XXXXXXX area? What complications can arise from the procedure? And finally can any of these complications be permanent? Thanks for your help!
