Is it possible to get a vaginal yeast infection from sleeping with a man?

Yes: Especially if he has a foreskin. Also, if during the sex you become dry, the vagina can become irritated to the point where it is much easier for you to develop a yeast infection.

Generally clotrimazole is well tolerated and will wipe out a localized fungal infection, but there's other stuff in the cream you could be allergic to. Best to show the rash to a doc and monitor for any worsening. The cream also contains benzyl alcohol, cetostearyl alcohol, and octyldodecanol among other chems ...Read more
