I am believed to havea penile yeast infection. I've treated with Fluconazole and monstat 7. How long should it last? I've treated it with medication for 3 days and creme for 6 days.

Hi there can a yeast infection in men be painful & hurt to pee & I am using canesten hc cream for it how long will it take to work?

Probably not yeast: Yeast infections are uncommon in the male genital tract. This symptoms makes me concerned about an STD, if you are at risk (new or unsafe partner, etc); or about a non-STD urinary tract infection. If you are under a doctor's care, check back with him or her. If not, i.e. treating yourself with Canestin, stop immediately and see a doctor. Your nearest NHS GUM clinic would be an excellent choice. ...Read more

I am a 37 year old female who is suffering from a throat (oral) yeast infection.? s: how long do symptoms last and how can I never get this again?

Thrush: Thrush is never normal and requires a cause, like taking antibiotics, taking oral steroids, using a steroid inhaler or topical spray, or underlying disease like immunodeficiency. Make sure you know the cause and avoid, minimize, or treat it. In meantime you need anti fungal medication to prevent progression of the candidal infection to 'esophagitis' for example. At minimum nystatin or Diflucan (fluconazole). ...Read more
