Question: Tiny red bumps & itch on penis

 Princess - Mon Dec 12, 2005 4:07 pm

Hello, I have recurring yeast infections and when I have intercourse, my bf forms tiny red bumps on the side of the head of his penis and he itches afterwards. The next day or two, it heals. For me, I am sore. What could he and I have?

Without physical examination and/or laboratory tests, it is impossible to give an absolute diagnosis, but the symptoms are suggestive of candida balanittis for your boyfriend and vulvovaginal candidiasis for yourself.
