How can recurrent yeast infection on penis be treated?

Q: I am a 29 years old man suffering from yeast infection on my penis for the past eight months. I have ringworm on my hips and testicles too, which irritates but it comes and goes on its own. The doctor suggested the use of Fluconazole and Candid ointment; another doctor suggested Nizoral for a week and an ointment. After using them it stops, but the problem is recurrent. Please advise.

A:If your condition persists or recurs frequently, then one has to consider the following:

  1. You maybe stopping the treatment before infection has been eradicated.
  2. The infective organism is resistant to the drug used.
  3. There is a reservoir of infection from which you are getting re-infected.
  4. There are comorbid predisposing factors.
