To treat genital candidiasis, men can apply over-the-counter antifungal creams such as Monistat to the affected area twice a day for one week, according to Mayo Clinic. Anyone can treat candidiasis in the mouth with medicated mouthwash or lozenges, reports WebMD.
Genital candidiasis generally warrants abstaining from sexual contact during treatment, according to Mayo Clinic. If both partners experience candidiasis symptoms, both should treat the infection at the same time to prevent passing the infection back and forth.
If an over-the-counter fungal cream does not clear up the infection, the individual may need to see a doctor. Some infections may require a prescription medication, states WebMD.
