  • they can carry the virus so if you get treated he should too because you will continue to get it if not. Also have him shower right before youhave sexthat would decrease your risk of contact.

  • not that common but yes he needs to go to the doctor and get treated unless you want to keep treating yourself which I'm sure you don't. That or it could be a different kind of infection did you go to the doc? If not I would just go in and get it checked.

  • Yep, we have passed it back and forth to each other a time or two. It usually will present itself as a rash on his shaft, itchiness, and flaky skin. When that happens, we usually will get a diflucan prescription because the OTC stuff does not work well on men.
