Not herpes: No herpes outbreak is likely to last 3 weeks, it's an uncommon cause of balanitis. If herpes were the cause, it would be in the form of open sores, generally very painful. Yeast indeed can cause balanitis. Maybe share your gf's anti-yeast cream (or buy clotrimazole cream over the counter). Also retract foreskin and wash w/ soap and water 2-3 times a day. See a doctor if these don't help. ...Read more

Can my husband get a yeast infection in his mouth if I have never had a yeast infection?

Yes he can.: Infections by 'candida albicans' (more commonly, a yeast infection) can occur anywhere on a person where it is dark and moist, including mouth, vagina, and underneath large areas of sagging skin. While vaginal yeast infections are fairly common, persons with diabetes or with an immune deficiency of some sort are more prone to oral candidiasis. See a doctor for this condition, as it is treatable. ...Read more

What does it mean if I have vaginal itching and burning. I have had sex with my partner but we used a condom. Could this be a disease ?

What does it mean if I have vaginal itching and burning. I have had sex with my partner but we used a condom. Could this be a disease ?

Yes and No.: You could have a disease if the condom broke or if you didn't use the condom before any penile contact... You could also be irritated by the spermicide if condom had that. That's why many condoms stopped having nonoxynol 9... Very rare to have latex allergy. If it continues, consider seeing an md for std test. ...Read more

It could well be: that the antibiotics killed off the good bacteria in your colon and now you have bad ones proliferating. You should take a high quality probiotic and if there is much bleeding or abdominal pain or fever see your doc. Good luck! ...Read more

My boyfriend has a big penis everytime we have intercourse I bleed and recently I had a bladder and kidney infection can it be the cause of it?

My boyfriend has a big penis everytime we have intercourse I bleed and recently I had a bladder and kidney infection can it be the cause of it?

Yes: The physical trauma of sex can lead to bladder infections. Good lubrication and gentleness can go a long way to preventing injury and bleeding after sex. Drink plenty of fluids, and be sure to urinate immediately after you have sex (never sleep after sex unti you empty your bladder). Vitamin C and cranberry juice in your diet can also help reduce the chance of a bladder infection. ...Read more
