Males can contract yeast infection from female partners .
The symptoms you describe are suggestive of Balano -Posthitis .
In your case both partners should be treated to prevent recurrent infection .
Topical antifungal creams like clotrimazole can be prescribed to you .

may also need antifungal medicine orally like fluconazole .
Other then that you can do warm compression with isotonic saline to reduce inflammation .
