Also known as genital candidiasis, a yeast infection (Yeast Infections or Candidiasis) is a condition which commonly affects women. In fact, most adult women will experience this infection at least once in their life. However, men experience it as well. A male yeast infection usually affects the glans penis (head of the penis) or its foreskin (Foreskin Wiki Page). It should also be noted that most men who suffer from yeast infections, get it from their partners (Safe Sex).
There are numerous factors that trigger a male yeast infection. Some of them are enumerated below:
Use of antibiotics – Antibiotics are useful in curing bacterial infections (Bladder Health | Keep Your Bladder Healthy). While these medications are useful, note that long-term use may hamper the growth of healthy bacteria. This may cause yeast and fungi to develop, thereby leading to a male yeast infection.
If you want to treat a male yeast infection as soon as possible, then you have to be aware of the signs and symptoms of the condition so you can deal with it right away. Common signs and symptoms affecting males are redness, itching, irritation, soreness and swelling around the penis, lumpy and thick discharge under the foreskin which produces a foul odor, painful urination (Painful Bladder Syndrome) and sex, increased appetite for sweets, and indigestion. If you have these symptoms, maybe it is time to consult a doctor to find the right treatment.
