Usually fine: Some fungal (candida) infections (often called "thrush") can come back. Make sure you both use the medication as directed for its full course. If he has a foreskin, the medication needs to get under the foreskin well. If it returns, see your doctor. This medication works well for most people, assuming you do not have an immune system problem. Good luck!
