Doctor said I had high level of yeast and to treat if symptoms arose. Treated with canesten due to bit of itchiness. Now it's worse. What do I do?

Check with doctor: Canesten is clotrimazole, usually very effective. How long has it been since you were treated? It can take a week to clear up, and itching can be worse for a day or two. However, some yeast strains are resistant to Canesten and other "azole" drugs. If treated a week without benefit, maybe diagnosis is wrong or resistant strain. Check back with your doctor about next steps. ...Read more

I have one blood bubble on my right testicle that is itchy and have grown in size recently. It has bled profusely on two occasions. What can I do to make this go away?
Is there anything available over the counter that can be used to treat this?
How can I

So you must see a doctor and get this lesion examined to be sure that it is not something like a melanoma which tends to bleed easily. A biopsy or excision of this lesion may be indicated once you see the doctor and discuss with him the nature of the problem and how to treat it ...Read more
