    Penile yeast infection... >_
    An_248312 posted:
    So I had unprotected sex with my new girlfriend for the first time. We had both taken full panel STD tests prior and got the docs all clear ahead of time. Shortly after commencing, I began to suspect she had a yest infection. She had been changing birth controls at the time and low and behold the very next morning the head of my hammer was red, itchy, inside and out but mostly near where the head meets the foreskin. I used some anti fungal cream I had on hand and it went away in a couple days so I stopped using the cream. Every once in a wile after that I'd get a tiny itch but it seemed to be resolved. A couple weeks later it came back, worse this time. Really itchy, really soar on the head and itchy all around my jock area. I used a one week yeast infection treatment and miconozole powder. The head got dry and flaky and and in exactly one week it was gone, but (you guessed it). It came back a couple weeks later. This time I go to the Dr. He does some tests and gives me an oral anti fungal which made the rash disappear and made it feel like 95% better over night, but it was still a little bit sore for a wile.

    Now, like a month after that treatment I'm starting to be sexually active again but for sh** sake, it's getting sore again! There's still a little redness around the base of my head near the foreskin and when erect there are some tiny reddish spots. There's more of a dull pain coming from my head, than an itch but... IDK I guess I'm just hoping someone can reassure me that this is in fact a yeast infection or something equally treatable and that it will in fact go away...

    Why not just go to see the doc and get the appropriate treatment to get rid of whatever it is immediately rather than waste your money, time and pain trying to fix it yourself?
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
