Male Yeast Infections

Yes, men can have it too. It is common for men with AIDS to suffer from oral yeast infection, but any man – with or without AIDS - can develop penile yeast infection. Although it isn't as common in men as it is in women, yeast infection in men can cause discomfort just like it does in women.

Some signs and symptoms of male yeast infection include red rashes, itching, and burning at the head of the penis. Tiny reddish bumps may appear. Some infected men report having white and clumpy penile discharges.

It's necessary to ask for a doctor's help in the diagnosis of penile rashes and sores, as these might be symptoms not just of a yeast infection but of even more severe forms of penile infection or sexually-transmitted diseases.

Causes

Sexual contact with an infected woman allows yeast fungus to transfer in the male genitals. When a heterosexual couple has unprotected sex, yeast infection can be transferred to the man and back to the woman almost endlessly even if the woman is already undergoing treatment.

Another cause of male yeast infection is the use of condoms with spermicidal lubricants. These condoms contain nonoxynol-9, a sperm-killing substance which can cause rashes and sores in the genitals of both the man and the woman. These rashes and sores make vaginal and penile skin vulnerable to fungal infection. It's recommended that you use condoms that do not have spermicidal lubricants.

Prolonged use of antibiotics brings down a man's natural defenses against fungal infection. Just like how it goes in women, antibiotics kill the friendly bacteria that prevent overgrowth of the Candida fungus. Men with elevated blood sugar level are also prone to yeast infections.

Treatment

Male yeast infection is generally treated using prescription oral drugs like Diflucan and Nizoral. The doctor might also recommend the use of antifungal creams like clotrimazole (Canesten) and miconazole (Monistat). For home remedies, men can eat crushed garlic to get rid of the infection symptoms. Some men find it effective to apply white vinegar over the affected area.

Joint treatment for couples is important in order to prevent passing the infection back and forth. It helps if the couple will refrain from sexual activity until all the signs and symptoms of the infection are gone.
