    My mom read an article that you can transmit yeast infection to your spouse and then they give it back to you. They don't show any symptoms. My mom is going to see about having Dad treated when she is treated.

    Don't know if that's true, but could be . . .

    Good luck . . .

    Treating with plain yogurt, directly!, two to three times a day until it is under control and then once a day until sure it is gone really works for me. I use one of the plastic applicators you get with the over-the-counter yeast treatments and fill the barrel by sucking up the yogurt as through a straw and then inserting the plunger. May sound strange but the live cultures keep those little yeasty beasties under control and there is no medication for which the beasties eventually develop an immunity plus it's a lot less expensive. Hope it works for you!
