You could have a swab taken and sent to the lab to be sure that it is Candida. Other things you could do are treat your partner, wash underwear and towels separately, wash panties in boiling water as the high temperature kills the spores. You could also check for diabetes and HIV which are risk factors. And you could use Canesten each month before your period as this is a vulnerable time.
