Urologist 's  Response

Most likely it is an yeast infection which is coming back again and again. Both the partners should be treated for this condition as this infection can travel back and forth between you and your wife.You may not have the symptoms , but you can have it silently. Avoid sexual contact till all the symptoms settle off.Use barrier protection like condoms for next 4 weeks after treatment. This should take care of the issue permanently.There is no life risk with this infection, but it is always better to be infection free all the time.

I hope this answers your query.
