A gynaecologist will be the best to consult but you can first try an oral pro-biotic with lactobacillus for a period of fourteen days. You have to add a STAT dose of Diflucan 150mg. Oral Diflucan should cure the Candida completely.

Your sexual partner should use Apor cream (available over the counter) at pharmacies, applied twice daily, for ten days. He can be the source of recurrent infection, which is quite normal.

I do suggest that both of you have a blood glucose test done (at your pharmacy), in order to exclude diabetes, which is a major cause of recurrent Candida.
