Looking for a way to treat your male yeast infection? Search no more. This article will give you all the information you need to cure your infection. If you’re suffering from a male yeast infection (also called candidal balanitis) you may notice the following symptoms:
If you’re not sure if it’s a yeast infection, visit a urologist to get a proper diagnosis and treatment. If your partner’s got a vaginal yeast infection and you notice the above symptoms, most probably it’s candidal balanitis and you can choose one of these over-the-counter treatments to cure it:
The first explanation that comes to mind is that you got it from your partner. Some pathogenic Candida cells attached to your penis during an intercourse and started to colonize it. Make sure that you use a condom whenever your partner gets a yeast infection, and apply Clotrimazole cream even if you don’t get any symptoms, just as a preventative measure.
Interestingly, yeast infection is not considered a sexually transmitted disease and there’s evidence that male partners are not the main risk factor in women who suffer from recurrent vaginal yeast infection.
Another reason for getting male yeast infections can be diabetes. Make sure you get your glucose tolerance tested to eliminate this possibility, especially if you’re over 40.
If you keep getting penile yeast infections, make sure you go to see your urologist (or you partner’s gynecologist) to determine the cause and nature of your infection and find a more effective treatment, because not all genital yeast infections respond to over-the-counter medication.
It’s really important to get assessed by a doctor as there are certain transmitted diseases, such as genital warts, that can give similar symptoms to male yeast infection. Those conditions can cause serious complications for your and your partner’s health and it’s really important to treat them properly.
If you and your partner are trying to conceive it’s worth knowing that Candida, the fungus that causes a yeast infection, has the ability to cause sperm immobilization, which means that when you’re suffering from a genital yeast infections your chances of conceiving drop.
