Hi doctor,

Myself and my husband got a UTI last year as we fail to maintain hygiene after having unprotected sex. We will fall asleep and I will not clean myself fully. I will end up seeing it later in my underwear. We took an antifungal cream. Within few months, the skin on the outside of the private parts became sensitive and we felt something uncomfortable over there. My husband seems to have some precum sperms and he feels uncomfortable due to it. As he works in snow removal and so he feels comfortable due to it. He feels fine when he cleans it immediately. Can we continue to use antifungal creams or something else? My best friend can have herpes or HIV and she did not know it until yesterday. But I shared a drink with her. After knowing it, I looked at her and I did not see anything abnormal in the mouth. Is there a chance for me to get infected?



Welcome to

UTI (urinary tract infection) is a bacterial infection and antibiotics are taken to treat it. Antifungal creams help in treating fungal infections. Your best friend can have herpes or HIV and you are not sure about it. You shared a drink with her. Usually, HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is not transmitted by sharing food, kissing, hugging, and sweats. Herpes is a viral infection and many people around you can have infections but they may not be aware of it. Their symptoms seem to be mild and nonspecific. Genital herpes is transmitted by doing sex. Oral herpes is transmitted by HSV1 (herpes simplex virus 1). Genital herpes is caused by HSV2 (herpes simplex virus 2) of different strains. I need more details regarding your fungal infections. Please mention whether you have any vaginal itching, swelling, cottage cheese-like discharge, raw vagina, and vulva. Please give more details regarding the problem and it helps me to give you a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment can be given.
