I've had a fungal infection around the scrotum for many years due to diabetes and tried many creams which never worked. This is when I was advised by a pharmacist to try Balance Activ BV. It comes in 7 tubes designed for females. One tube lasted me 2 to 3 days, just rub around area, after 3 days it was gone. But you must keep using as it will come back. Hope this helps, it helped me.

Coconut oil is the best treatment for the yeast infection. It make your yeast infection vanish immediately. Pour some oil on the private area and massage gently and then pour some more oil and you will be able to take the yeast away from your private area without pain.

My wife suffers from yeast infections a lot. She also wares a panty liner all the time. I got a yeast infection on my shaft of my penis and a couple times in the skin folds between my thighs and scrotum area. Three times I needed to get prescription cream to cure it. A couple times when caught soon enough regular athletes foot cream has worked.
