Treating the infection
Fluconazole is the first-line treatment for penile yeast infections. It is usually taken as a single tablet.
If you have a yeast infection that does not affect the penis, topical antifungal creams, known as imidazoles, are often effective. Types of imidazole creams include: Clotrimazole, Econazole and Miconazole. If your symptoms do not resolve within 14 days of using an imidazole cream, a Fluconazole tablet can be used as an alternative.
Relieving the Symptoms
The symptoms of a yeast infection can be very uncomfortable. Topical steroids (steroid creams) can help to relieve the symptoms faster. Alternatively, using an ice pack / cold pack or even a bag of frozen peas, can offer rapid relief.
