I have a penile yeast infection and oral thrush. I am currently using Clotrimazole cream twice daily for the past seven to eight days, but I still see some white colored thin fungus like particles. (These are very few near the glans penis).
This is the second time the fungal infection has appeared. When the first incidence of the infection appeared I took two doses of Fluconazole and the infection seemed to disappear. Additionally, I see cracks on the head of the penis. I have had used soap to clean the penis in the past. The first time when I had white layer of smegma, the FNP had recommended me to use Triamcinolone acentonide and this did not cure the problem but I think it did aggravate it. My penis seems quite unhealthy than before with cracks on it. My concern is apart from treatment for infection, will I be able to get healthy crack free penis head back again and can I completely get rid of the fungus?
