Yeast infection on a male, not overweight, and reoccurring.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I occasionally have white bumps that appear between scrotum and anus. also anus has a chaffing feeling going on. not scabbing, no warts, also penis head has a discoloration. All stds test come back to just Herpes 1, and nothing else. I also use powder daily to stay dry, and I use a steroid cream. Nothing is helping. Also have used apple vinegar and still nothing.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having white bumps that appear between scrotum and anus and other symptoms since last 8 months is most likely suggestive of yeast infection (also called as jock itch).

Following is recommended for you:

· Apply cream containing clotrimazole.It is availaible at counter without prescription.It is drug of choice to treat yeast infection.

Probiotics are one of the most important parts of a Candida albicans/yeast infection cure..There are many brands of probiotics easily available as over the counter at your pharmacy.

· Keep you genital area clean & dry .

· Remove wet, sweaty bottom clothing as soon as possible.

If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications like fluconazole (diflucan) or Itraconazole (sporanox) will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatments.

but they dont solve the issue

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Fluocinonide is a potent glucocorticoid used topically as an anti-inflammatory agent. It is applied to reduce inflammation/swelling.

Similarly cortisone is a topical steroid to reduce inflammation/swelling.

Baby diaper rash cream also does not contain anti fungal agent.

So the creams you are using does not contain any anti fungal agent.To treat your symptoms you need anti fungal cream. Clotrimazole is drug of choice to treat yeast infection.It is available at your pharmacy as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.

Prescription oral medications like fluconazole (diflucan) or Itraconazole (sporanox) may be prescribed accordingly. This will cure your infection & hence the symptoms completely.

Thank you.
