Azole resistance?: Some Candida that cause vaginal yeast infections (thrush) are resistant to the usual treatments (the "azole" drugs, including clotrimazole). Your BF's symptoms could be from your yeast infection. Contact your doctor or clinic and ask for an alternative treatment, such as nystatin or flucytocine.
