I am a diabetic & since I've been on insulin - 3 wks - I get a yeast infection until my Dr. prescribes a medicine to help but my infection starts up again.
Hi, it's possbily the blood sugar wasn't managed well, when you started insulin, it didn't lower your blood sugar level back within normal range. Did you test the blood sugar level when you were on insulin? It's also possible that the yeast infection wasn't completely cleared in the first time. Yeast infection relapse is common.
Can a man get a yeast infection if he had sex with a woman that had it
Yes, a man can get infected. The tricky part is sometimes men infected show no symptom, that makes men carrier of pathogen. For example, wife gets treated, husband doesn't coz he has no symptoms, when wife is free of yeast infection after the treatment, the couple have sex and the wife gets infected once again.
So what would be a treatment for men?
I have a yeast infection and I'm trying to figure out how I could get rid of it is there anyway you could help me and let me know how I can get rid of it
First you have to tell us where is the yeast infection? Is it on your body or in your lungs or in your fingernails or somewhere else? For superficial yeast infection such as athelete's foot, you can apply antifungals to get rid of it. Effective drugs include:
miconazole (Desenex)
terbinafine (Lamisil AT)
clotrimazole (Lotrimin AF)
butenafine (Lotrimin Ultra)
tolnaftate (Tinactin)

In general, superficial yeast infection is easy to treat. But deep yeast infection, such as a lung yeast infection is much more difficult to treat. The antifungals should be taken orally or intravenously. It generally takes a few months or even a year to treat deep yeast infection. Doctors often use medications such as fluconazole and itraconazole
