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.

I am a young female teen and was treated for a yeast infection last year. After being cleared I soon hit puberty and I just want to know are these sores and pimple-like things normal? And also itching..

After your cycles are more established, this generally subsides, but itching in the vaginal area may also be a recurrent yeast infection. Sexual relations can of course also cause other types of infection, so see your gyn provider for an exam. ...Read more
