Hi doctor,

I have itchy and reddish private part since last two months. I have pain at the tip of penis and during intercourse. I consulted a doctor, he suggested me AF-Kit. After taking this for one month it was just perfect. The symptoms returned again. I tried AF-Kit, but this time, the symptoms did not go off completely. Hence, after 3 weeks again I took AF-Kit, but symptoms still persist. Please suggest how to overcome this issue. Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thanks for your query on this platform.

You are suffering from fungal infection candidiasis which is notorious for recurrence.

The common causes of recurrence are:

  1. Low immunity.
  2. Diabetes.
  3. Improper antibiotic use.

I will suggest you to apply Clotrimazole cream available as candid cream twice a day on the lesion.

Take your AF-Kit (combination of Fluconazole 150 mg, Azithromycin 1 g and Ornidazole 750 mg) also.

In case of severe itching, take some antihistamine once a day.

Keep the area dry and clean, wear loose fitting cotton undergarments, do not use perfumed soap, eat healthy and balanced diet and drink lots of water.

I would also suggest you to check your fasting blood glucose for diabetes.
