Patient :My husband and I havent had sex in the past 8 months. I'm 30 years old and my husband is 30 as well. Everytime we try to have sex, he experiences extreme burning sensation in his penis. I got myself checked with our doctor and she said I have vaginal infection and gave me 2 courses of cansten. My husband tested negative for any penis or urine infection. But we still have the same problem.
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
I presume your sex life was normal prior to this?
Fungal infection when in active stage in the vaginal area may cause discomfort to the partner, although it never causes any significant burning.
Once you finish the course of Cansten, we would need to observe whether he still suffers from any burning sensation.
Also, can you let me know whether he suffers the same problem even when wearing a condom?
Please feel free to discuss further.
