Thrush transfered to husband?
I recently learnt in an ante natal class that thrush can be passed to a partner. My husband has not been circumcised and has for a number of months had a redness under his forskin. A thin layer of skin rubs off daily, despite him being very hygeinic. Could I have passed thrush onto him? And, if so, how can he get rid of it?

Many Thanks

It is possible. He could use Canesten cream.
