Nurse72 : You may have a candida infection. The symptoms ate consistent with your report. You can purchase lotrimin AF over the counter at your pharmacy. Keep the area clean and dry. If not better within 3-5 days you should be examined.
Nurse72 : Please let me know if you have further questions or need clarification
Would my wife show symptoms of a candida infection? Are they normal things to have? I dont think I have had one before. Should I be concerned about anything else? I tested myself for diabetes and it came up clear.
Nurse72 : She may not have symptoms an may not have the infection. Her ph may have resisted it.
Nurse72 : This is a common problem
Nurse72 : Especially after antibiotic use
Nurse72 : I wouldn't be concerned unless its a consistant recurrent problem
I think it started before the antibiotics though. I cant feel any pain, its just a split, well, 2 splits about 5mm long and 1mm wide, small amounts of blood
Nurse72 : Candida is a yeast alibican fungal infection that is harmless and easily treatable
Nurse72 : Candida can cause dryness and cracking I the skin on the penis
OKies, ill buy something. Thanks. Finally, what would constitute a recurrent problem? Once a month?
Nurse72 : You may have started with a mild one and the antibiotics made it worse
Nurse72 : Once a month consistently would be recurrent yes
Nurse72 : You're welcome : )
