Mysticdoc :

The views expressed by me are for educational purposes only and do not establish a doctor patient relationship.

Mysticdoc :

Hi there,


I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.


I am here to help you with your concerns.

Mysticdoc :

Oral thrush can cause this problem.

Mysticdoc :

Now this may not be oral sex related.

Mysticdoc :

However, vaginal yeast infection can also get transmitted through oral sex.

Customer: where would the thrush come from if its that?
Mysticdoc :

one possibility is as above.

Mysticdoc :

another possibility can be due to the recent antibiotic use.

Customer: ok is there anyway to know for sure?
Mysticdoc :

no

Mysticdoc :

unless the partner had yeast infection.

Mysticdoc :

the oral fungus can be identified from the fungal culture.

Customer: i was prescribed a mouthwash to treat the fungus - does this sound right?
Mysticdoc :

yes Nystatin mouth wash commonly used.

Customer: finally, we also had brief unprotected intercourse on same date and i have itch in groin too (but no sores or lessions, no pain when urinating etc). was tested for all stds at week 5 - negative. is she had a yeast infection, would that explain my itch in he goin as well as fungus in throat?
Mysticdoc :

yes that will.

Customer: i was told most yeast infections in men affect the penis and not the groin but my penis seems fine
Mysticdoc :

no the yeast infection can also affect the groin.

Mysticdoc :

Another possibility can be from the sweating.

Customer: ok thank you
Mysticdoc :

very welcome

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
