private part Yeast Infection In Men….
Though yeast infections are more common in women, anyone can get one. It’s possible for a man to get a private part yeast infection if he has unprotected s*xual intercourse with a partner who has a private part yeast infection.
However, if your partner has a yeast infection, it doesn’t mean you’ll get one too. s*xual transmission of yeast infections is uncommon.
Prolonged antibiotic use increases your risk of a yeast infection, and men and women with diabetes or impaired immune systems, such as those with HIV, are more susceptible to yeast infections.
Signs and symptoms of a male yeast infection include a reddish rash, itching or burning at the tip of the man-hood. Most male yeast infections are easily treated with over-the-counter antifungal treatments, such as Monistat (yes, men can use it too). Apply the medication directly to the affected skin twice daily for a week. If the rash doesn’t go away, or if it recurs frequently, consult your doctor.
If you and your partner both have symptoms of private part yeast infection, it’s important that you both be treated. Otherwise, you may keep reinfecting each other. Also, it’s generally recommended that you refrain from s*xual contact until all signs and symptoms of the infection are gone.
