Just to add to the story, I read a post from someone who cured themselves by using 'feminine products' around the genitals area. The concept is the same since many of the feminine creams and soaps are made to kill yeast and bacteria around that area. This is definitely worth the try you can simply go to the nearest CVS and buy such creams. They may say something like 'vaginal cream/antifungal' but don't be intimidated by the label. I was going to give this a try couple of months ago and never got around to it... will definitely do it this week!
