Thrush can return after treatment and can be a very difficult thing to get rid of. It is unusual that both you and your boyfriend experience. These symptoms, as it is normally more difficult for a guy to get thrush than for a woman. There are a variety of treatments available for this, which include changing your diet and removing all yeasts from your diet. Most interventions work to a limited degree. I suggest you return to your gynaecologist, and get prophylactic treatment, that you can use to keep the thrush away.
