About 20 years ago, while in college, I received a yeast infection on my penis from my girlfriend. The glans and the foreskin area was red and itchy with tiny red bumps. The doctor did a culture and gave me Hydrocortisone cream (1%) with Clioquinol (3%). I used it for about 7-10 days, and I was completely cured.
About 15 years ago, at the urethral opening on the glans, a tiny fissure appeared. It was slightly itchy and red, and I used the same Hydrocortisone/Clioquinol cream for about a week and it was completely cured.
Two years ago, when I was on vacation with my family in Mexico, both corners of my lips started to crack and open as fissures with a slight itch. I did a quick research on the internet, and found that it was called angular cheilitis. From a local pharmacy I got the same medicine I got years ago (Vioform Hydrocortisone with Clioquinol), and applied it on both corners. A week later it also completely cured.
Recently, my upper torso, and sides started to itch. My tongue was white every morning, and I had tiny red dots and red fissures appeared on my back and both sides, and I am into the 7th day of my Hydrocortisone/Clioquinol treatment. The itch is gone, and red bumps and fissures have also disappeared. I have fatigue, sugar craving, stomach problems, etc.
It seems like I have candidaiasis. It also appears that it is responding to the Hydrocortisone/Clioquinol cream. But my concern is that the candidaiasis has entered my system from a simple infection. I would like to cure this problem once and for all!
What would you recommend that I do? I have already talked to my family doctor, and I was told that there is nothing more he could do.
I do not eat a lot of bread/sugar/starchy food, and I am not a diabetic.
