We have sex once a day at least, he swears he has not been mastubating and I recently had a yeast infection.

Hi,

That is fungal infection to your husband. Use Miconazole Nitrate 2% anti-fungal cream for local application for 4-5 days. It will heal definitely. Meet your primary care doctor to achieve these.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Pramod Kokare, General & Family Physician
