Good personal hygiene 

You can help prevent thrush by good standards of hygiene, such as cleaning your penis regularly and using a condom while having sex with your partner (if they have thrush).

Wearing loose-fitting cotton underwear can help prevent moisture building up under your foreskin, which lowers the chances of the candida fungus multiplying.
