Male yeast infection is much more common than you would think and can cause many different health problems.
This webpage explains their
causes, symptoms and natural treatments without drugs and the unwanted side
Most men will go through life never knowing that they have a yeast infection because there is a preconceived notion within the medical community that men do not get them. Women will get a vaginal infection and this is the clue that something’s wrong in their body. Whereas men will have absolutely no idea they may have a male yeast infection until it creates other problems with their health.
Usually, men are informed by their significant other that she has
a yeast infection, so the chances are he has it too. Most doctors will
prescribe an anti-fungal for the woman's vaginal yeast infection and suggest that the man take it also so he
does not give it back to her. Other doctors will tell you that men don't get yeast infections.
Other than getting skin yeast on his penis, men are at significant risk to develop further health problems from yeast. During sex, the male’s urethra is exposed and vulnerable to a urinary tract infection from an infected female. In some cases yeast can travel up the urethral canal and settle in the prostate, bladder and kidneys but this is pretty rare.
Men can get skin yeast on their penis and be completely unaware they are infected. This type of male yeast infection can lie dormant because the outside of the skin is about 77 degrees. But once the penis is in the vaginal canal, it can cause a vaginal yeast infection in the woman. If your significant other gets vaginal yeast infections when you have sex with her, the chances are very very good that you have skin yeast on your penis and possibly in your urinary tract.
Many of the causes of male yeast infection are the same for any other yeast infection including sex. Most often the good bacteria to yeast ratio in your digestive system becomes unbalanced, allowing the yeast fungi to thrive and spread to other parts of the body.
The most common cause of yeast infections in adult and youth males are antibiotics, alcohol, to much beer, sex with infected partners, a diet high in wheat products, corn products, and high sugar foods. Other than the antibiotics and sex, the rest contribute to candida overgrowth by weakening the immune system because they kill good bacteria from the over acidity they produce in the intestine.
In the case of antibiotics we can take a look at Penicillin, discovered in 1928 by Dr. Fleming as he was running an experiment with mold from bread (wheat product). He took some of this mold and added it to his dish of live bacteria. What he noticed was that the mold completely cleared out the bacteria. The fungus killed the bacteria just as it does in your digestive system when you take antibiotics.
Think back now to how many times in your life you went to the doctor for a chest cold, or what ever it may have been, and you were prescribed an antibiotic. You took it, the illness cleared up and you thought everything was ok. What you didn't know is the antibiotic killed your good bacteria. Not all of it, since we have in a normal healthy human digestive system about 70 trillion beneficial bacteria, but you killed some allowing the yeast infection to begin too spread. You have a cold beer every now and then, you killed some more. Yeast thrives on beer and helps it grow due to the yeast and sugar being used in its production. You eat food unknowingly that contains molds, you killed some more. You eat sugar-laden foods, which feed the infection allowing it to grow. This goes on until the fungus takes a good hold in your digestive system and becomes systemic.
The bottom line is you have let your immune system get worn down by the constant abuse of your body and that is when you begin to experience some of the symptoms.
The more common symptoms of male yeast infection are constipation, bad breath, bloating, indigestion, frequent intestinal gas, sexual dysfunction, irritability and mood swings, fatigue or lack of energy, memory loss, jock itch, dry itchy flaky skin, athletes feet, nail fungus, your urinary tract tract in your penis itches, and occasionally prostate problems.
You may also develop a craving for sweets, pastas, chips, etc because of the sugar they contain. Sugars and simple carbs are yeasts preferred food source and it will demand to be fed. Unknowingly you will more than likely feed it, until you realize you have it and do something about it.
Men and boys most often experience digestive problems and all the related problems as the number one symptom. However, according to the Mayo Clinic, penile skin yeast infections are a big problem especially in uncircumcised males.
I have devoted an entire page to penis yeast infections or other genital skin infections
and how to treat them.
Systemic and intestinal yeast infections are treated in much the same way as all other fungal infections. This webpage will show you how to treat them.
