Men's Candida Symptoms
Certain things can happen in life that just change everything.
A Candida yeast rash on your genitals ranks as one of those things.
It's embarrassing to even think about having an intimate relationship with someone knowing that you could be giving them your problem. Or maybe you just have too much discomfort to even think about such things as "intimate relationships".
Male candida is not a misnomer
I didn't want to think of myself as having "Candida". I thought it was a woman's problem. Turns out I was wrong. Candida is simply an overgrowth of yeast in the body that can manifest in women or men. Women often experience this as a vaginal infection. For men, Candida often manifests as a rash on your skin. This could be on your arms, your face or the more closed and damp areas like your groin/genital area. Here are some symptoms:
Symptoms of Male yeast Infection
- Irritation / soreness on the head of the penis
- Reddish rash / itching on the head of the penis
- Small blisters on the head and shaft
- Rash that spreads into the groin and anus with itching and irritation.
- Clumpy discharge from the penis.
Any of the above symptoms can also indicate an STD -- sexually-transmitted disease. Please check with your doctor and rule out any possible STD's. You may need specific medications to treat an STD.
You might wonder: how did all this happen? Why Me? Well, there are many possible causes and they are not always your fault.
A Yeast Infection Can Be Caused By
- A weakened immune system from prolonged illness or high stress
- Sexual Transmission from a woman with a vaginal yeast infection
- Antibiotics that kill the beneficial bacteria in the gut. (This beneficial bacteria is what keeps the natural yeast in our bodies from growing wild!)
- Lifestyle: eating -- or drinking -- lots of sugars and carbs.
- Men with diabetes can easily develop yeast infections because high levels of sugar in the urine create an environment beneficial for yeast to overgrow
Can I really get it from my partner?
"In penile candidiasis, the causes include sexual intercourse with an infected party, low immunity, antibiotics, and diabetes... However, yeast infection on the penis from direct contact via sexual intercourse with an infected woman is not uncommon."
The Mayo Clinic's Answer on Sexual Transmission of Yeast Infection
"...women can also get yeast infections from men. So it's important to treat both partners if a yeast infection is suspected. To minimize the risk of passing the infection to a partner, it is generally recommended that you abstain from sexual activity until all of your symptoms are gone."
Candida Yeast Overgrowth happens in a body that is "ripe" for it. As always, Knowledge is Power! There are many treatments that are NOT going to get rid of your problem. Topical creams may work temporarily -- but your rash will likely continue to resurface. Pharmaceutical antifungals like Nystatin will only temporarily help as they only treat the symptoms and not the cause.
For Men, the Yeast Infection story can get Worse
The fungus can start on the head of the penis and it can travel down the shaft, into the moist areas of the groin and onto the anus where it can develop into a painful itchy anal rash. Though rare, the fungus may even travel inside the shaft of the penis where it would then cause a yeasty discharge. This is a horrifying sight and creates painful urination.
You may also have the other symptoms of Candida yeast overgrowth, fatigue, stomach bloating / indigestion / burping, brain fog, fungal sinus infections, white film on your tongue, etc.
