Fungal infection of male genitalia: The request could not be satisfied


Male Yeast Infection Causes and Symptoms

Yeast infections are often seen as a female health issue, as vaginal candidiasis is a common problem. While the cases of men getting yeast infections are less common, anyone can get one regardless of gender or age. In most cases, yeast infections go away on their own or within a few days with treatment.

Candidal balanitis or balanitis thrush is the most common type of yeast infection in men. This type of balanitis typically causes inflammation of the tip of the penis. In uncircumcised males, yeast may also affect the foreskin, a condition called candidal balanoposthitis.

Candida yeasts are responsible for up to 35% of all cases of balanitis. But yeast infections in men have not been studied enough and researchers are unsure how many men are affected yearly.

Male Yeast Infection Symptoms

Unlike yeast infections in women, men generally don’t experience symptoms. However, once symptoms do appear, they can cause extreme discomfort and pain.  

Symptoms of yeast infections in men include:

  • Burning with urination (dysuria)
  • Sores on the foreskin of the penis, with cracking or bleeding of the foreskin
  • Irritation and itchiness
  • White, lumpy, foul-smelling discharge
  • Discomfort during sexual intercourse
  • Redness and inflammation at the top of the penis
  • Small rash-like bumps that may contain pus
  • Patches of white, shiny skin at the top of the penis

Causes and Risk Factors

Many men will contract a yeast infection from sexual contact with their affected female partner, as women are more susceptible to yeast infections. While organisms causing the infection can be transmitted through sex, balanitis is not considered a sexually transmitted infection because men can get the infection without being sexually active.

Other causes and potential risk factors for male yeast infections include:

  • Poor hygiene
  • Being uncircumcised
  • Having diabetes, as men with diabetes have a higher amount of sugar in their urine, which may promote the growth of yeasts
  • Prolonged use of antibiotics, which lower probiotic counts, allowing for the growth of Candida
  • Weakened immune systems due to illness and chronic health conditions, which allows Candida to spread
  • Using soaps and skin products that irritate the skin
  • Wearing tight-fitting underwear or wet clothing
  • Hot, humid environments
  • Condoms that contain lubricants
  • Using spermicides
  • Being overweight

When to See a Doctor

Untreated and serious yeast infections of the penis could potentially cause chronic prostatitis. Chronic balanitis also can lead to narrowing or tightening of the foreskin (phimosis), narrowing of the urethral opening (meatus), or other changes of the skin (balanitis xerotica obliterates, leukoplakia).

Men who have never had a yeast infection or who have severe symptoms should be medically checked out. It is also important to see a doctor when an infection does not clear on its own and to rule out other problems, including diabetes and other conditions that cause a weakened immune system.

If a yeast infection is severe, a swab from around the top part of the penis or foreskin is done and sent to a lab for testing. If sores do not heal, a biopsy might be needed.


Most mild yeast infections will not require treatment. Antifungal creams or oral medications can help manage symptoms. These medications are available over-the-counter (OTC) or with a doctor’s prescription.

Men who have not been previously treated for yeast infection should see a doctor before treating themselves with OTC anti-fungal medications for the first time.


Good hygiene can help prevent yeast infections and even treat them. It’s a good idea to wash the penis regularly with plain warm water, avoiding shower gels and soaps, and drying well after.

Men should never use perfumed shower gels or soaps on their genitals. Wearing loose-fitting cotton underwear or boxers and keeping genitals dry and cool at all times can also prevent yeast growth.

A Word From Verywell

Male yeast infections are uncommon. But they do affect men and may have uncomfortable and painful symptoms. Understanding what causes these infections and their symptoms can help with prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.  

Prolonged and severe symptoms should be brought to the attention of a doctor. If both partners have symptoms of a yeast infection, it’s important for both to be treated so they can avoid re-infecting each other.

Male Thrush | Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Thrush is the common word for a yeast (fungal) infection from a germ called candida. This germ is often present harmlessly on our skin, but sometimes causes a problem when it multiplies. Candidal infections can affect many body systems, but most commonly cause problems in the genital area, in the mouth (oral thrush) or on the skin.

Thrush in men is a common problem, although it occurs less often in men than it does in women. It is usually a mild infection caused by a yeast, and in most cases quickly clears up with treatment.

See the separate leaflet Vaginal Thrush (Yeast Infection) to read about thrush in women.


It is reasonably common to have the thrush germ (candida) but not have any symptoms at all. When thrush causes a problem, it is due to inflammation of the penis and foreskin (balanitis). The symptoms may include:

  • A red rash at the tip of the penis.
  • Soreness or itching of the penis.
  • The tip of the penis may be swollen.
  • A discharge from the end of the penis – usually a white or creamy colour, sometimes with a thick ‘cottage cheese’ type of texture, which may or may not be smelly.
  • Pain or discomfort when passing urine or having sex.
  • It may be difficult to pull the foreskin back (retract the foreskin).


As with many thrush infections, the most common reason is that the germs that normally live harmlessly on or in our body multiply to a level where they cause symptoms. Thrush is a fungus, so like other fungi, it thrives in situations which are hot and damp. So in some cases, the thrush germ lives harmlessly on the skin around the penis, but if there are hot and sweaty conditions, it multiplies and causes symptoms. For example, if the weather is hot, or you wear tight nylon clothes that don’t allow the skin to ‘breathe’, or if you don’t dry yourself carefully after showering or exercising. Thrush is not officially classed as a ‘sexually transmitted infection’, but sometimes it can be passed on during sex or triggered by sex. Most women will have thrush at some point in their lives, but they rarely pass it on to their male partners. However, sometimes this does happen. Sometimes men or women can carry the thrush germ without having any symptoms, and then pass it on through having sex.

Some situations or conditions make thrush more likely – for example:

What should I do if I think I have thrush?

If you have never had thrush before, it is best to visit a sexual health clinic or a doctor to check the diagnosis. There are many other causes for balanitis, so it is best to get it checked. A swab can be used to confirm thrush and also exclude other types of infection, such as gonorrhoea.

If you have recurring thrush (ie the infection keeps coming back) you may need urine or blood tests to check there is no reason for this. For example, you may be tested for diabetes or for problems with your immune system. Tests for sexually transmitted infections may also be done. Your partner should also be tested for thrush and sexually transmitted infections if the problem keeps coming back.

If you have had thrush before, and you recognise the symptoms, you can buy the treatment (see below) from a pharmacy. However, if it is coming back quickly or regularly, you should see a health professional to check for an underlying problem, and to check that your infection is definitely thrush.

What is the treatment for thrush in men?

Thrush in men is usually easily treated with a course of an antifungal cream. These can be bought at a pharmacy or a large supermarket, or prescribed by a doctor. There are several creams available, including:

Another option is an antifungal tablet, such as fluconazole. This is a one-off tablet which is swallowed.

Does my partner need treatment too?

No – not unless your partner has symptoms or signs of thrush.

Are there any complications from thrush in men?

Usually not – thrush is, in most people, a mild and easily treated condition. For people whose immune systems are not working properly, it may spread through the body and cause more severe problems.

How can I avoid getting thrush?

As mentioned above, fungi thrive in hot or wet conditions. So avoid anything which might make your genital area hot or wet for any length of time – for example:

  • Shower after exercise and dry yourself thoroughly.
  • Avoid synthetic underwear – cotton is best.
  • Avoid tight underwear and trousers/shorts.
  • Avoid tight Lycra® clothes.
  • Keep your penis clean – wash regularly, and dry thoroughly. Perfumed soaps or shower gels may cause an irritation – it may help to wash with an emollient such as E45® or aqueous cream instead.

Also if you or your partner have thrush, it is best to avoid sex until you have been treated. Using a condom will also help prevent you passing it between you, but remember that condoms may be affected by the creams used to treat thrush.

Can men get yeast infections? Male yeast infection treatments

While it’s true that yeast infections (candidiasis) are more prevalent among women, men can get yeast infections, too. 

Both female and male yeast infections are caused by a fungus called Candida Albicans, which is a natural part of our skin flora, especially in moist areas and mucous membranes. However, a fungal overgrowth in the mouth, foreskin, or head of the penis can cause a yeast infection. 

Because they often occur after sexual intercourse and affect the sexual organs, it’s tempting to lump yeast infections with sexually transmitted diseases. But the infection isn’t actually spread via sex. Rather, sexual contact can spark the growth of the candida fungus, catalyzing an infection. These are just some misconceptions about yeast infections in men, so here’s what you need to know to identify, prevent, and treat a male yeast infection.

Symptoms of male yeast infections

Most might cringe at the thought of fungal overgrowth on their genitals, but the good news is that some men don’t experience any symptoms of yeast infections. Others, however, might begin to notice early symptoms like moist skin around the penile head, redness, and itching. As the infection progresses, symptoms might include:

  • More severe irritation or itchiness
  • Sores on the foreskin or penis
  • A white, discharge in the penile skin folds (resembling cottage cheese)
  • Discomfort during sex
  • A moldy smell
  • A burning sensation during urination
  • A red rash
  • Whiteish, shiny patches of skin

A candidal infection can also lead to balanitis, a condition characterized by inflammation in the penile head and foreskin. 

Because candida also exists in the mouth, it’s possible to develop a different type of yeast infection called oral thrush, which might include symptoms like:

  • White lesions on the tongue, inner cheeks, palate, tonsils, or gums
  • Loss of taste
  • Redness, burning, or soreness
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • A cotton-like sensation in the mouth
  • Difficulty swallowing

Someone with particularly severe symptoms or an infection that doesn’t respond to over-the-counter medications should visit your healthcare provider. Anyone experiencing their very first yeast infection would also be wise to schedule an appointment. Doctors are often able to clinically diagnose a male yeast infection, says Susan Bard, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at Vive Dermatology Surgery & Aesthetics in Brooklyn. It’s often recognizable through symptoms, medical history, and a visual examination. If necessary, she says, a diagnosis can be “confirmed with a fungal culture swab.” 

Male yeast infection risk factors and causes

We’ve already established that yeast infections in men and women are caused by an excess of candida yeast on the skin. Moist, occluded areas are the biggest risk factor, says Dr. Bard. These areas are much for conducive environments for a candida imbalance. But perhaps the more pressing question is: what causes this fungal imbalance? The most common culprit is sexual contact with an affected partner. Again, these fungal infections aren’t contagious, and they’re not sexually transmitted infections, but a direct encounter with candida overgrowth can affect the skin’s natural fungal cells. 

The good news is that they’re somewhat avoidable. However, certain behaviors, medications, and conditions can drastically increase the chances of developing a candida infection, like:

  • Poor hygiene and cleanliness
  • Having diabetes (higher blood sugar means more sugar in a man’s urine, which can stimulate yeast growth)
  • Using soaps or shower gels that irritate the skin
  • Being uncircumcised
  • Humid, moist environments
  • Prolonged use of antibiotics
  • Obesity
  • Diseases that suppress the immune system

Avoiding these risk factors can contribute significantly to yeast infection prevention. 

Male yeast infection treatment

The easiest way to avoid or treat yeast infections is by taking preventative measures. But sometimes, even if a man takes every precaution, he might still end up with excess fungus. Luckily, it is treatable. Most cases are mild and will respond to over-the-counter antifungal drugs, but severe cases might require stronger prescription medications.

Male yeast infection home remedies

Let’s start with the basics. Good hygiene is essential. Keeping the genitals clean and dry will help manage fungal growth. Using scented shower gels and wearing tight-fitting underwear can irritate the skin and contribute to a warm, moist environment, aka yeast paradise. Wearing a condom during sexual intercourse will also help protect the penis from a fungal imbalance. 

Candida infections will occasionally go away on their own, but ignoring them isn’t a good idea. A few yeast infection home remedies can be useful for mild cases. Taking probiotic supplements or eating probiotic-rich foods like natural yogurt can help restore the body’s yeast and bacteria balances. Natural foods and oils with antifungal properties can also act as effective topical treatments, such as:

  • Garlic
  • Tea tree oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Apple cider vinegar (always dilute it first!)
  • Hydrogen peroxide (also diluted)

Men who have a yeast infection should also refrain from sex until they’ve recovered, as it can further irritate the affected area and potentially throw off their partner’s candida balance.

Oral thrush may respond to similar home remedies, but mixed with water and used as a mouthwash. Saltwater rinses can also be effective. 


Simple OTC antifungal medications can handle most penile yeast infections and oral thrush. Some of the most effective antifungal creams include Lotrimin (clotrimazole) and Monistat (miconazole). The latter is often marketed specifically for women with vaginal yeast infections, but it’s just as effective for men. The primary side effect of these topical medications is temporary irritation (i.e., burning or itching) at the application site.

“Topical antifungals are typically effective,” Dr. Bard says. “For recalcitrant infections, an oral antifungal may be prescribed.” A healthcare provider can prescribe a one-time dose of stronger oral medication, like Diflucan (fluconazole). Yeast infections, even severe ones, will typically go away after a short course of prescription medication.

Oral thrush treatments often involve an antifungal mouthwash using Diflucan, Mycelex Troche, Nystop, or Ketoconazole instead.

With proper care and medications, most male yeast infections should clear up in three to 14 days. Any infection that persists beyond two weeks, even with medication, warrants another trip to the doctor, as it might require a different treatment.

Male Yeast Infection: Symptoms, Causes & Treatment

Candidiasis, also known as yeast infection or thrush, is a common disease. In men it can cause itching, pain and redness on the penis, but in some cases, it may cause no obvious symptoms.

This condition can be cured, and treatment is usually done with topical ointments or antifungal medication prescribed by a urologist.

Male yeast infection is a fungal infection caused by Candida albicans, which mainly affects the mouth and genitals, and normally manifests in people who have a weakened immune system, diabetes or have had sexual intercourse without using protection.

Photo of candidiasis in men

Main symptoms

The main symptoms of a male yeast infection usually include:

  • Pain or burning sensation during sex;
  • Itching on the penis;
  • Redness and/or swelling of the glans;
  • White discharge similar to semen.

You should see a urologist if you have these symptoms and suspect of an yeast infection. Diagnosis can be confirmed through a penile evaluation and/or a laboratory examination in which a small sample of the penile lesions is collected to evaluate the presence of the fungus.

What can cause an yeast infection

Yeast infections can be caused by a number of factors, but it only manifests itself when men have their immune system weakened.

The main causes of male yeast infections are:

  • Having sex without using a condom;
  • Frequent use of antibiotics, corticosteroids or antidepressants;
  • Diabetes;
  • Poor intimate hygiene;
  • Diseases that weaken the immune system, such as AIDS or lupus;
  • Going through chemotherapy;
  • Having a diet rich in sugary foods.

In addition to the penis, yeast infections can also affect the mouth, throat, nails, skin and scalp.

Treatment options

Treatment for yeast male infection can be done at home with the use of antifungal ointments such as Fluconazole, which should be applied daily for 7 to 10 days, according to medical recommendation.

When the ointment does not seem to be treating the infection, or in cases of recurrent yeast infections, oral antifungals such as Fluconazole or Ketoconazole may also be used for up to 14 days.

How to prevent male yeast infections

It is common for yeast infections to appear more than once. To prevent this from happening, it is important to:

  • Follow an appropriate diet, rich in water, fruits and vegetables to strengthen the immune system;
  • Avoid wearing warm, tight or wet clothing;
  • Practice good hygiene of the penile area;
  • Use condoms in all sexual contacts.

Strengthening the immune system is also a great way to prevent the spread of Candida albicans, so you should eat less sugar, exercise, and follow a healthy diet.

Fungal Infections of the Reproductive System

Learning Objectives

  • Summarize the important characteristics of vaginal candidiasis

Only one major fungal pathogen affects the urogenital system. Candida is a genus of fungi capable of existing in a yeast form or as a multicellular fungus. Candida spp. are commonly found in the normal, healthy microbiota of the skin, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system, and female urogenital tract. They can be pathogenic due to their ability to adhere to and invade host cells, form biofilms, secrete hydrolases (e.g., proteases, phospholipases, and lipases) that assist in their spread through tissues, and change their phenotypes to protect themselves from the immune system. However, they typically only cause disease in the female reproductive tract under conditions that compromise the host’s defenses. While there are at least 20 Candida species of clinical importance, C. albicans is the species most commonly responsible for fungal vaginitis.

As discussed earlier, lactobacilli in the vagina inhibit the growth of other organisms, including bacteria and Candida, but disruptions can allow Candida to increase in numbers. Typical disruptions include antibiotic therapy, illness (especially diabetes), pregnancy, and the presence of transient microbes. Immunosuppression can also play a role, and the severe immunosuppression associated with HIV infection often allows Candida to thrive. This can cause genital or vaginal candidiasis, a condition characterized by vaginitis and commonly known as a yeast infection. When a yeast infection develops, inflammation occurs along with symptoms of pruritus (itching), a thick white or yellow discharge, and odor.

Other forms of candidiasis include cutaneous candidiasis (see Mycoses of the Skin) and oral thrush (see Microbial Diseases of the Mouth and Oral Cavity). Although Candida spp. are found in the normal microbiota, Candida spp. may also be transmitted between individuals. Sexual contact is a common mode of transmission, although candidiasis is not considered an STI.

Diagnosis of vaginal candidiasis can be made using microscopic evaluation of vaginal secretions to determine whether there is an excess of Candida. Culturing approaches are less useful because Candida is part of the normal microbiota and will regularly appear. It is also easy to contaminate samples with Candida because it is so common, so care must be taken to handle clinical material appropriately. Samples can be refrigerated if there is a delay in handling. Candida is a dimorphic fungus, so it does not only exist in a yeast form; cultivation can be used to identify chlamydospores and pseudohyphae, which develop from germ tubes. The presence of the germ tube can be used in a diagnostic test in which cultured yeast cells are combined with rabbit serum and observed after a few hours for the presence of germ tubes. Molecular tests are also available if needed. The Affirm VPII Microbial Identification Test, for instance, tests simultaneously for the vaginal microbes C. albicans, G. vaginalis (see Bacterial Infections of the Urinary System), and Trichomonas vaginalis (see Protozoan Infections of the Urogenital System).

Topical antifungal medications for vaginal candidiasis include butoconazole, miconazole, clotrimazole, tioconazole, and nystatin. Oral treatment with fluconazole can be used. There are often no clear precipitating factors for infection, so prevention is difficult.

Clinical Focus: Nadia, Part 3

This example continues Nadia’s story that started in Anatomy and Normal Microbiota of the Urogenital Tract and Bacterial Infections of the Reproductive System.

The Gram stain of Nadia’s vaginal smear showed that the concentration of lactobacilli relative to other species in Nadia’s vaginal sample was abnormally low. However, there were no clue cells visible, which suggests that the infection is not bacterial vaginosis. But a wet-mount slide showed an overgrowth of yeast cells, suggesting that the problem is candidiasis, or a yeast infection. This, Nadia’s doctor assures her, is good news. Candidiasis is common during pregnancy and easily treatable.

  • Knowing that the problem is candidiasis, what treatments might the doctor suggest?

(b) This wet mount prepared with KOH shows Candida albicans pseudohyphae and squamous epithelial cells in a vaginal sample from a patient with candidiasis.

Key Concepts and Summary

  • Candida spp. are typically present in the normal microbiota in the body, including the skin, respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, and female urogenital system.
  • Disruptions in the normal vaginal microbiota can lead to an overgrowth of Candida, causing vaginal candidiasis.
  • Vaginal candidiasis can be treated with topical or oral fungicides. Prevention is difficult.

Thrush (genital)

Thrush (or candidiasis) is a common condition caused by a type of yeast called Candida. It mainly affects the vagina, though may affect the penis too, and can be irritating and painful.

Many types of yeast and bacteria naturally live in the vagina and rarely cause problems. Candida is a yeast-like fungus that lives in warm, moist places such as the mouth, bowel, vagina and the foreskin of the penis. Thrush is caused when there is an overgrowth of Candida.

How do you get thrush?

Normally your body and vaginal bacteria stop the overgrowth of Candida. However, if either of these changes, Candida can quickly multiply, leading to thrush.

Thrush is more likely to occur if:

  • you’re pregnant
  • you’re taking oral contraceptives
  • you’re on medication such as antibiotics (which can kill off normal, healthy bacteria as well as disease-causing ones)
  • you have undiagnosed or poorly managed diabetes
  • you’re under a lot of stress.

It can also be more common at certain times during the menstrual cycle when oestrogen levels are higher, such as before or after a period.

How is thrush spread?

Thrush is not a sexually transmitted infection and can occur without sexual contact. However, Candida can sometimes be passed on during sex, and sexual activity can make thrush symptoms worse.

What are the signs and symptoms of thrush?

Symptoms of thrush vary. Some people can have thrush but have no symptoms. Common symptoms of thrush include:

  • a thick white or yellow discharge from the vagina which may or may not have a yeasty smell
  • stinging pain when passing urine
  • pain or discomfort during sex
  • itchy or swollen genitals.

Symptoms for men can include red spots or rash on the penis, scrotum or groin. Some uncircumcised men have Candida under the foreskin, but have no symptoms.

How is thrush tested and treated?

Thrush can be diagnosed by examination of the affected area. A swab can also be taken and tested in a laboratory to confirm a diagnosis of thrush.

You can buy pessaries (dissolving tablets you put into the vagina) and cream over-the-counter from your pharmacy. Complete the treatment even if you are having a period. Men should apply the cream to the genital area, penis and under the foreskin, if uncircumcised.

If these treatments don’t work or if you often get thrush, see a doctor as you may have other health problems or a drug-resistant type of Candida. Your doctor may also test for sexually transmissible infections, which can cause similar symptoms. Your sex partners may need treatment at the same time to stop you getting it again.

Natural yoghurt can help soothe the area but won’t cure thrush.

How can thrush be prevented?

To help prevent thrush:

  • wear loose pants or skirts, and cotton underwear. Tight or synthetic clothes stop air movement and create moist conditions, which are ideal for bacteria.
  • avoid using soaps or sprays in the genital area, as they can cause irritation.
  • wash your hands before touching the vaginal area
  • wash your hands after going to the toilet
  • women should wipe themselves from front to back after going to the toilet
  • wash the genital area with water only. After washing, gently wipe the area dry
  • thrush can be passed on through sex:
    • don’t have vaginal sex straight after anal sex
    • wash thoroughly after anal sex and use a new condom and water-based lubricant before engaging in vaginal sex
    • always use condoms, dental dams and water-based lubricant when having sex to avoid getting thrush and sexually transmitted infections.


  • Thrush is caused by an overgrowth of yeast known as Candida Albicans.
  • The condition can affect both women and men.
  • Treatment may vary and is determined by the severity of your symptoms.
  • Consult your doctor if you have recurrent episodes of thrush.

Penis Yeast Infection – PlushCare

While you may think of yeast infections as primarily a problem that women suffer from, penis yeast infections are not that uncommon. What symptoms should you watch out for? What are the treatments? Can they be prevented? Here are the basics about penis yeast infections.

Penis yeast infection symptoms

Penis yeast infection symptoms include:

  • Red rash
  • White shiny patches on penis
  • Pain, burning or itching at the head of the penis, especially after sex
  • Redness and swelling
  • Papules – rash-like bumps that may have pus
  • Lumpy, thick discharge under the foreskin
  • Foul-smelling foreskin
  • Trouble pulling back foreskin

Penis yeast infection causes

Just like in women, yeast infections in men are caused by an overgrowth of a fungus called Candida. Most people carry Candida, but its growth is kept in check by healthy bacteria. The most common ways for men to develop yeast infections are having bad hygiene and having unprotected sex with a woman who has a yeast infection.

Penis yeast infection risk factors

While any man can develop a yeast infection, several things can make a man more prone to a penis yeast infection. Apart from having unprotected sex with a woman who has a yeast infection, other risk factors for male yeast infections include:

  • Being uncircumcised, since the area under the foreskin can breed Candida
  • Failing to clean your genitals or bathe regularly
  • Prolonged use of antibiotics, since healthy bacteria prevent Candida from reproducing out of control, and antibiotics don’t just kill “bad” bacteria, they kill all bacteria
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Having an impaired immune system
  • Taking corticosteroids

Penis yeast infection complications

While a yeast infection may seem simple enough, it can cause potentially serious complications, like:

  • Balanitis, an inflammation of the head of the penis or the foreskin. Having diabetes increases your risk of developing balanitis. Balanitis can cause scarring on the foreskin or adhesions (the union of two different tissue surfaces) on the penis. Balanitis can be painful, make it more difficult to urinate, and cause weakness and fatigue.
  • Candidemia or invasive candidiasis is when a yeast infection enters your bloodstream. It’s a very serious condition that may require oral or intravenous antifungal medications.

Penis yeast infection treatment

Penis yeast infections are usually treated with topical antifungals such as:

  • Miconazole (Lotrimin AF, Cruex, Desenex, Ting Antifungal)
  • Imidazole (Canesten, Selezen)
  • Clotrimazole (Lotrimin AF, Anti-Fungal, Cruex, Desenex, Lotrimin AF Ringworm)

With prompt treatment, a penis yeast infection usually clears up within a week.

Serious yeast infections that don’t respond well to topical antifungals may require additional treatment, like:

  • Oral fluconazole (Diflucan)
  • Hydrocortisone cream

Circumcision may be offered as a treatment option to men who are not circumcised that are experiencing yeast infections frequently. While circumcisions are usually done on infants, they can be performed on men of any age.

Preventing penis yeast infections

Luckily, there are several things men can do to avoid developing yeast infections. Some tips include:

  • Avoid having unprotected sex with a woman who has a yeast infection. If you’ve been having unprotected sex, your partner should be treated as well, even if she isn’t having symptoms. Otherwise, you may pass the infection back and forth between each other.
  • Keep your genitals clean (including under your foreskin, if you have one) and dry.
  • Return your foreskin (if you have one) to its usual position after sex.
  • Wear condoms during sexual intercourse.
  • Avoided scented shower gels and soaps.

Uroginetal candidiasis

Urogenital candidiasis is a fungal disease of the mucous membranes and skin of the genitourinary organs caused by yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida.

Candida albicans can colonize the oral mucosa and the mucous membranes of the urogenital tract without causing any clinical manifestations in 70% of healthy people.On healthy skin, representatives of this species are practically not found.

The main route of transmission of urogenital candidiasis is sexual. According to statistics, this method occurs in 30-40% of all cases.

Factors predisposing to infection include:

  • Various mechanical lesions of the skin and mucous membranes (for example, trauma, etc.).

  • Deficiency states (vitamin deficiency, anorexia, iron deficiency).

  • Hormonal imbalances and dysfunctions of the reproductive system in women, including pregnancy, taking contraceptives in the form of capsules or tablets.

  • Senile age.

  • Dysfunctions of the endocrine system of the body (diabetes mellitus, adrenal cortex insufficiency, etc.).

  • Congenital defects of the immune system.

  • Suppression of immunity associated with HIV infection, long-term use of drugs that slow down the function of cell division or steroid hormones.

  • Malignant neoplasms, most often of a hematological profile.

  • Long-term use of broad-spectrum antibiotics.

The main complaints presented by patients are itching and burning in the vulva and perineum, discharge from the genital tract, urinary disorders, pain in the pelvic area.Symptoms may worsen after intercourse and menstruation.

The main clinical manifestations of urogenital candidiasis in women are inflammation of the vulva and mucous membranes of the vagina, cervix, vagina, urethra, large sex glands.

In men, the main symptoms are rashes on the skin of the glans penis in the form of a small rash, prone to merging into large foci and weeping erosion. Malosymptomatic forms of candidal balanoposthitis (inflammation of the foreskin and glans penis) clinically represent irritation spots accompanied by burning or itching, which occur most often after unprotected sexual intercourse.The pathological process can spread to the skin of the scrotum and inguinal folds.

By the nature of the course of the disease are distinguished:

  • Candida – carriage (absence of clinical appearances in laboratory detection of a yeast-like fungus in small quantities).

  • Acute condition, in this case candidiasis lasts no more than 2 months.

  • Chronic, including: a) recurrent – at least 4 episodes per year; b) persistent (permanent) – the symptoms of the disease persist constantly, slightly decreasing after treatment).

Therapeutic tactics of urogenital candidiasis include local and systemic therapy with antifungal drugs.

The effectiveness of therapy and a decrease in the frequency of relapses depend on the nature of the course of the disease. So, in chronic recurrent urogenital candidiasis, only local therapy is not enough. In this case, a combination treatment is used.

EMC doctors carry out diagnostics and treatment of urogenital candidiasis in accordance with European protocols.The choice of patient management tactics is carried out individually, after determining the type of fungal infection of the genus Candida and its sensitivity to antifungal drugs, which makes it possible to shorten the treatment time and ensure maximum efficiency.

As a rule, after a while a man gets used to such symptoms, begins to consider it the norm and does not go to the doctor, which subsequently complicates the treatment of the disease.

In chronic candidiasis, which exists for a long time, the skin of the genital organ becomes thinner, therefore it is easily injured – abrasions and abrasions appear on the penis.During sexual intercourse, a man experiences painful sensations, discomfort occurs when urinating.

Gradually, a favorable soil is created for the development of inflammatory processes and infections. Candida urethritis may occur, which is manifested by the appearance of white, thick, mucous, filamentous discharge from the urethra and discomfort during urination.

The risk of developing balanoposthitis (inflammation of the head and foreskin of the penis) and balanitis (inflammation of the head) increases significantly.

Diagnosis of thrush

As a rule, a visual examination is sufficient for the doctor to detect candidiasis. Candidiasis is diagnosed by sowing for the detection of Candida fungi by the PIF method (direct immunofluorescence) and PCR (DNA diagnostics). In this case, it is important to determine not only the presence of the pathogen, but also to identify their number, because fungi may normally be present on mucous membranes in healthy people.

For the effectiveness of treatment, it is important to clarify the species of the fungus using a culture study, for this, a scraping is taken.Candida has over 40 subtypes, but only five are distinguished in humans: C. tropicalis, C. albicans, C. glabrata, C. krusei, C. parapsilosis.

In the diagnosis of candidiasis, an important role is played by the collection of clinical data and anamnesis. Identification of strains of C. albicans is also carried out using PCR.

Serological reactions are also used to diagnose thrush:

  • complement fixation reaction (RSC),
  • agglutination reaction (RAG),
  • passive hemagglutination reaction (RPHA),
  • precipitation reaction (RP).

Using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), the doctor determines IgE (antibodies) against the species C. albicans.

During the diagnosis of candidiasis, concomitant diseases of the body and genital infections should be excluded. It is necessary to diagnose diseases such as balanitis, if we are talking about urogenital candidiasis, eczema with candidiasis of smooth skin.

Treatment of male candidiasis

For the treatment of candidiasis in men, the same drugs are used as for the treatment of women.

In case of mild candidiasis of mucous membranes and skin, it is enough to use local medicines: suspensions, creams, antimycotic ointments. If the disease has chronic or acute forms of smooth skin and urogenital candidiasis, treatment includes mandatory anti-inflammatory antibiotic therapy.

    Mycosis: causes and treatment – Planet of Health blog

    Mycosis is a fungal infection.His whale children are pathogenic and opportunistic microorganisms. Fungal diseases are very common these days; Wed di potentially dangerous places – public beaches, swimming pools, saunas, gyms. The fungus enters the human body through the organs of the air Chania, microcracks in the skin and through the mucous membranes.

    Mycosis is a highly contagious disease – it can spread quickly enough not
    only among people, but also among animals.

    Here are causes of that can contribute to the development of fungal diseases :
    • Weak immunity (promotes the engraftment of the fungus and the development of symptoms).
    • Frequent use of antibiotics (reduces immunity).
    • Varicose veins.
    • Diabetes mellitus (poorly healing wounds and cracks – the gateway to the fungus).
    • Abrasions, ulcers.
    • Narrow interdigital space (excessive sweating in this area is a favorable environment for the development of the fungus).
    • Increased body moisture, sweating.
    • Contact with an infected person or animal.
    • Using someone else’s shoes, toiletries, towels.
    • Non-sterile manicure / pedicure tools.

    Signs of a fungal infection are well known : with mycosis of the feet (dermatomycosis) is itching, redness, peeling of the skin. With nail fungus (onychomycosis) – a change in the color of the nail (to yellow, brown, gray or black) and its structure, which
    under the influence of the disease it becomes loose and layered, becomes thinner or thicker.However, onychomycosis is easily confused with other
    violations. For example, with neurotic nail lesions or psoriasis, in which the nail becomes like a thimble
    (in a small hole) or turns yellow. Orthopedic problems greatly change the appearance of the nail, including lumbosacral osteochondrosis, disorders of peripheral innervation and blood supply, as well as vascular diseases, thyroid gland and other endocrine pathologies. In addition, today a blurred picture of the disease is often found, which leads to late referral to specialists and, ultimately, to the development of advanced forms of fungal disease.As a rule, two stages of toenail fungus are distinguished, and at the initial stage it is easy to overlook.

    First signs of fungus:
    • small white dots on the nails;
    • change in the shape of the nail;
    • the appearance of white stripes;
    • fragility of the nail;
    • surface change, it can become rigid and ribbed;
    • The skin around the affected nail often turns red and flakes.

    In the advanced stage, the color of the nail plate changes, it becomes coarser and thicker, the nail begins to crumble.Gradually
    the fungus can spread to neighboring nails.

    C Hygiene advice, prevention and treatment
    Since a combination of mycosis of the skin and nails develops more often, it is ineffective to treat these processes separately. Tre a complex of preparations is used: cream – for the affected skin of the feet, a deep penetrating solution and / or varnish – for the treatment of nails. At
    For requests for varnishes / solutions for the treatment of mycoses or for complaints of fungal lesions of the nail plate, we recommend Mikoderil solution or Onyhelp varnish, and also a set “ Exol ” for removing fungal lesions from the nail plate and its further restoration.To protect the skin around the affected area and treat the skin manifestations of mycosis, antifungal cream (Terbized) or gel (Lamifungin) is required. And do not forget that you need to tune in to long-term treatment.

    NB! External remedies can be effective only if no more than ⅓ of the nail plate and no more than 3 nails are affected by the fungus.
    To combat an advanced infection, long-term use of internal systemic antimycotics, which are prescribed
    doctor according to the test results.

    To maintain foot hygiene, antiseptics of a wide spectrum of action ( MestaMidin-sensor / spray MikoStop ) are perfect – they are effective prophylactic agents. Such preparations are also necessary when using varnishes and solutions, because when cutting the nail plate, fungal spores can get on the surrounding skin.

    One of the causes of mycoses may be reduced immunity. To maintain the body’s defense system in the spring-summer period, it is recommended to take antioxidant vitamins C, D, Zn, Se ( VerrumVit *, Selenium VTF *) or immunostimulants ( Ingaron ) and immunoadaptogens ( Trerezan ).This will have a beneficial effect on the susceptibility to any kind of infection and disease.

    The consequences of the disease are not only severe itching, but also an unsatisfactory appearance of the nail plate. Disguise those
    manifestations will allow therapeutic and prophylactic varnishes, and sedatives ( Passnovel * / Passiflora plus * ) will help to cope with the accompanying nervousness and irritability.

    Among other things, fungi are allergens, release mycotoxins that harm almost all body systems.They contribute to the development and complicate the course of bronchial asthma, urticaria, atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, conjunctivitis. Therefore, it would be useful to offer sorbents in the form of tablets ( Normasorb *, Nor massorb-lacto *) or powders ( Sorboxane *, Liquid coal *) for oral administration.

    In case of non-observance of the rules of hygiene, relapses of the disease may develop. To ensure dry feet, if we are talking about skin and nail fungus (after all, a humid and warm environment is excellent conditions for fungus growth), DryDry deodorants ,
    Salton , Scholl are suitable. And we definitely recommend treating shoes where fungal spores can remain for a long time. We offer for this antiseptics (MestaMidin-sens) or special sprays ( MikoStop ). To avoid infection with fungal infections, you should adhere to generally accepted rules of hygiene and prevent spores from getting on the mucous membranes.
