      That does NOT look like yeast to me. Try the Cort 10 green label stuff.

        The label on these things usually say, for jock itch, to use daily for up to two weeks. Mine took a bit less, and I'm sure something under the foreskin might clear up more quickly, but one day's use won't immediately clear up an infection. Keep treating it, and give it some time.

        Of course, parsecskin could be right, here; I'm certainly no expert in recognizing yeast infections. A urologist really should know the difference, but it sounds like the one you mentioned in the original post was of no help at all. Whatever you try, just stay consistent with it, and remember that it takes time for these things to go away.

          Would it hurt to try both at once? Getting frustrated and really want this dealt with!

                Find a doctor that is intact. Don't even deal with a cut one. Ask him right off the bat.

                  What you report is consistent with a yeast infection.

                  What's really diagnostic of yeast infections is the foul odor of yeast. That's the big give away (but not all yeast infections are severe enough to smell like yeast). If you've ever been around a beer factory, or gotten a whiff of a batch of baker's yeast, you know the characteristic odor of yeast. If you smell anything like that coming from your dick, that's definitely diagnostic of a yeast infection. If you don't know what yeast smells like go to the supermarket and smell the baker's yeast packets. The packets are sometimes found in the 'Baking Needs' section, sometimes in the dairy case and Poppin' Fresh Dough section, because keeps better when cool. The odor can be so pungent that you can just take a whiff of the supermarket display.

                  Yeast of the species Candida albicans is usually the culprit in genital yeast infections. Yeast are unicellular fungi. Candia albicans is a normal resident of the genital mucosa, but it's proliferation is kept in check by the normal bacterial residents of the mucosal ecosystem. Yeast infection is thus an ecological disaster where the yeast have abnormally proliferated and taken over the system. Bacteria like a more acid environment; yeast like a more alkaline environment. Thus, a yeast infection indicates that area has become too alkaline.

                  One common mistake that people with yeast infections make is to wash the area extensively with soap and water. This makes the area more alkaline. A more alkaline environment favors yeast proliferation. A more acid environment inhibits yeast growth and favors a return to the normal microbial ecological balance.

                  One very effective home remedy for a genital yeast infection is to rinse the area with a solution of white vinegar in water. Store-bought white vinegar has been adjusted to 5% acidity. This is usually too acid. It makes your skin sting. Dilute the vinegar until there is no stinging sensation. This is the solution that has maximum acidity that you can comfortably use. Rinse the affected area with this solution repeatedly. Other acidic solutions work too. Some say the unpasteurized apple cider vinegar works better because the resident bacteria therein are friendly bacteria. If you don't like vinegar, you can use lemon juice, citric acid made from citric acid crystals bought at the health food store, or boric acid.

                  One home remedy for yeast infections of the intact foreskin is to slather the inner skin and glans with pre-cum or cum. Although it may seem counterintuitive, having all that slimy cum in there actually helps protects against infection. Microbiologists have known for many years that human semen has more potent antimicrobial properties than any other known substance on earth. However, all attempts to isolate the active antimicrobial component failed. As it turned out, human semen does not have a single active antimicrobial molecule. Instead, it possesses a multitude of antimicrobial agents (lysozyme, oxidative intermediates, etc,) that act in concert. While microorganisms are very capable of developing resistance to individual antibiotic molecules like penicillin and streptomycin, they have not been able to similarly develop complete resistance to the concerted action of all the antimicrobial agents in human semen.

                  Another home remedy for yeast infections of the intact foreskin is piss-washing - urinating while holding the foreskin shut, letting it balloon out with urine, then releasing. The pH of urine is ususally on the acidic side, although the normal pH of urine is anything between 4.6 and 8. An acidic environment gives the yeast a hard time. Piss-washing is not advisable for diabetics however, because the sugar they excrete in their urine can be used by the yeast as a fuel source. Pre-cum, cum, and urine are your friends, who will help resolve any yeast infection.

                  Other home remedies include slathering the area with yogurt containing active bacterial cultures, kefir, or acidiphilus cultures purchased from a health food store. The live bacteria in these products work by helping restore the ecological balance. Eating the yogurt or kefir will also help if the source of the yeast infection is the anal-rectal tract, which can also become infected with yeast.

                  A burning sensation when you urinate indicates that the infection is migrating up your urethra, so you should drink lots of water to flush it out. Better yet, drink cranberry juice. It acidifies urine. Cranberry juice is not only a home remedy, but is used in hospitals to treat urinary tract infections. Avoid cranberry juice brands that are laden with sugar, or grape juice (which again is too much sugar). See your doctor if you experience fever and chills, or see blood in your urine. That's an indication that the infection has migrated up your urinary tract to the point where it might threaten your kidneys.

                  Visit the gynecological section of your drug store and purchase Monistat or another one of the over-the-counter medicated cremes for vaginal yeast infection. I attended a seminar by a specialist in vaginal yeast infections in 2005 at the medical center when I work. It sounds like Monistat and the other over-the-counter products, together with the information women's groups are providing women to treat their own yeast infections is putting this doctor out of business. His research has centered on the search for new anti-yeast drugs that can be sold by prescription only by Big Pharma. Some new agents have been found, but his Big Pharma's problem is that they do not necessarily work substantially better in clinical trials than the over-the-counter products already on the market. One important fact that he has found is the normal pH of the inner vaginal tract is pH 4 (quite acidic), and is more alkaline in women with active yeasts infections. He has found that ALL the anti-fungal drugs work much better if the women also douches with a solution of boric acid. (Douching with boric acid alone also worked - but he didn't say that.) What this doctor-researcher said squares with the personal communications that I have received that Monistat and the other over-the-counters work MUCH better you add a little of your favorite acid - vinegar, lemon juice, liquid Vitamin C, citric acid. Place a dollop of the medicated cream into the palm of your hand and stir in a few drops of vinegar with a finger before application to the affected area.

                  In addition to the many sites on yeast infection on the web, there's was a cute, but factual, web site on yeast infections a hosted by Michigan State University (East Lansing, Michigan):

                  It is not currently posted, but I found it in the Internet Archive:

                  I declared myself finished restoring with 3/4 erect coverage (CI-8.5) in 2005. I primarily used T-tape, strapping up and around my waist.
                  I've participated in NORM meetings in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle (RECAP), and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

                  Every doubt, reservation, or concern I had about my restoration was resolved by achieving additional foreskin LENGTH.....So just KOT !

                    Over-the-counter antifungal creams, ointments or suppositories (with miconazole or clotrimazole) are the most common ways to treat yeast infections. These can take from 1 to 7 days. Your doctor may also prescribe a single-dose pill with fluconazole (an antifungal medicine) for you to take.

                      What I have read is that adding a little vinegar to the medicated cream just before application to the affected skin makes the medication work much better.
