Is your “boy” itching you like crazy? It hasn’t stopped driving you insane since that night you and the Misses went at it. What could be the problem? If you check with the lady in question, you might find she was having problems before your encounter. Could be you are now experiencing what many men often encounter, and you need to start learning about, Yeast Infection in Men and Penile Yeast Infection.
What is Yeast Infection in Men?
Yeast Infection, also known by its scientific name Candida albicans, is an overgrowth of the fungus in certain areas of the body.
These areas are susceptible to the fungus that causes yeast infections because they have what is required for yeast infections to flourish:
All three of these qualities are located in the 5 locations listed above. And since a man’s crotch or foreskin cover meets these criteria, Yeast Infection in men take place mostly in this area, also in the mouth. But how does the fungus get in these places on the body?
How does a Yeast Infection in men get started?
Humans have a delicate physiological balance that they maintain when they are healthy. Men have natural defenses in place to combat illness, and part of that is the balance of good and bad “germs” on the skin. A normal man is able to produce, and without thinking about it, cultivate enough “good bacteria” to fight off and destroy any pathogens. A yeast infection grows as a result of either:
- Contact with an already strong colony of C. albicans (such as during sex)
- A deficiency of the beneficial bacteria due to a drop in the body’s Immune System
The first reason is obvious, contact, but the second has several root causes.
Causes of Yeast Infection in Men
Here we will discuss the things that lead to the two conditions that lend themselves to the development of Yeast Infection in men.
1. Sexual Transmission
There is always transfer of material (germ or bodily fluid) between two people engaged in sexual activity. If one person has a particular infection or condition in or around the genital area, the likelihood of transfer of that condition is high; aka Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD). Although Yeast Infection in men is technically not an STD, it can be transferred sexually. The things to remember about sex and yeast infections are:
- Always wash before and after sexual encounters
- Clean anything that you or your partner will touch during the encounter
- Refrain from sex until you or your partner are free of all symptoms of infection
- If one partner has a yeast infection, there can be a “passing back and forth” of the condition until both partners are cured (men can be contagious without visible symptoms)
It is a good idea if you are sexually involved with someone, to see a physician to treat you or your partner’s condition. Without that advice it will be hard to know if you are contagious or not; you don’t want a “crap shoot” when it comes to sexual health.
2. Taking Antibiotics
In someone taking antibiotics for a prolonged period, there are several factors working against them that might allow a Yeast Infection in men to develop.
- They are already in a weakened state due to the initial illness which caused the need for antibiotics
- The Immune System is further taxed by the killing off of “good bacteria” caused by the antibiotics
- Yeast Infections can be anticipated, but not diagnosed until it’s too late and they show up
As always, consult your physician before you start any Yeast Infection in men medical treatment or supplement, but it’s a good idea to get a good Probiotic while taking prolonged antibiotic courses. Probiotics will:
- Put more good bacteria in your system
- Promote the Immune System
- Allow your body to fight back
3. Diabetic Patients
Yeast Infections in men are noticed more in Diabetic patients. It is not known exactly why this happens, but the idea is that the increased sugar levels in the blood make for good “food” for the C. albicans. This increase in the food supply for the fungus allows it to flourish and thus become symptomatic.
There have been reports of increased Yeast Infections in men with the use of this spermicide. It has also been associated with condoms that are treated with the substance.
