I'm scared to put my girl off sex by telling her I have an irritation below

DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE spent an absolute fortune on thrush creams over the past few months but it’s a losing battle.

When I buy the cream, it gives me some relief from the itching yet as soon as I run out of a tube, the issues and the irritation come back with a vengeance.

It seems impossible to get rid of the infection down below.

It’s embarrassing, as it causes a really itchy sensation.

I’m a guy of 29 and my girlfriend is 27.

I haven’t told my girlfriend as I don’t want her to think there is something seriously wrong with me and be put off having sex with me.

I am sure the pharmacist must recognise me, as I’ve been in at last half a dozen times over this.

DEIDRE SAYS: Thrush affects men and women.

In order to clear your thrush it’s important both you and your partner are treated at the same time.

Otherwise you will simply be passing the infection back and forth.

Talk to your girlfriend, as it is highly likely she has thrush herself.

If you are going to have a strong relationship, you need to be honest and supportive about these sorts of things.

Please go and see your GP for advice and treatment – together or separately. Some people are more susceptible to repeat infections if they have other conditions, so it is important to go and see your healthcare provider.
