Yeast: Clean off your penis and apply the canestan cream with the foreskin back, making sure it is fully absorbed. All the best.

No need to dry it: The cream will stick around, so you do not need to wait to roll it back

No: It could especially if it is crampy and comes and goes every few minutes. However, it could be due to additional strain in your low back muscles due to your expanding belly and less postural support from your stomach (rectus) muscles. It could also be pain in your pelvis (si joints) from the hip bones "moving" to create more room for your baby to come out. If uncertain see your healthcare provider.

You have sciatica.: Sorry you are suffering from this...There are several common causes of sciatica including irritation of the spinal nerves from a herniated disk. If your pain does not get better, if numbness affects the crotch, or if you have bowel or bladder difficulty then you need a surgical evaluation, otherwise your primary care provider can take care of getting the sciatica to cool down.

Try Miralax (polyethylene glycol).: Miralax (polyethylene glycol) laxative powder is non habit forming and otc. 1 capful with any beverage daily may help with your regularity along with your fiber in your diet/fluids. 4 or more servings of fruits/veggies can help. Make sure you stool is soft and not hard, pellet like or large caliber. Neosporin ointment in the anal area 2 times dialy may improve you situation too.
