Complicated: Although your husband had oral medication against candida it is unlikely that this cleared the organism from the surface of the skin where it can stay without symptoms. You should be treated with Fluconazole through one period while your husband is using a topical antifungal on his penis twice a day for a week to 10 days. Try that and if it does not work, write back. Good luck and happy newyear.
