Stay away from over-the-counter medicines

Most people try quick-fix solutions when they experience penile discomfort. They use OTC medications, which are generally antifungal drugs available in the form of ointments, powders, sprays, creams, tablets and so on.  However, these solutions are only temporary. Also, without knowing the root cause of the problem, it is strictly recommended that you avoid using the OTC medicines.

If you are suffering from recurring yeast infections, you must seek medical advice, as there could be a serious underlying reason. It could be a symptom of diabetes or HIV. You must know that if the infection is due to an underlying health issue, you will need to treat it first for the infection to go away.

It is also important to change your undergarments every day. Refrain from sexual activity until the infection is fully cured, as you might infect your partner with it.
