What is a PENIS / PENIS YEAST INFECTION?
Well a yeast infection on the penis / penis (or whatever they call it) comes from a yeast-like fungus called Candida and is also known as candidiasis. A sign of male yeast infection usually appears ON THE PENIS. One symptom is that the tip of the penis may become red, sore, or itchy. Some may also experience a slight discharge or dry, flaky skin on the penis. Irritation can also occur in the form of anal burning or anal itching or itching on the head of the penis. A red rash or patches with white spots on the foreskin and also on the shaft of the penis may be another indication. Redness can also appear on the scrotum or upper thighs.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES?
*Diabetes / Diabetic.
Men with diabetes can get a number of yeast infections. Most men with diabetes have high levels of sugar in their urine, saliva, and general system. Yeast tends to feed on this sugar and exacerbate systemic yeast. This can trigger a whole host of other yeast-related infections in different areas of the body, both internal and external.
Yeast infections of the penis
Men with diabetes can also get yeast infections of the penis. These can occur on the penis or scrotum. This condition can cause itching and burning. There is often a starchy smell that accompanies the other symptoms. People with this condition often have reddish bumps or blisters on the shaft or head of the penis; and sometimes in the scrotum. They may also have a lumpy white discharge. Again, diabetic men tend to have high levels of sugar in their urine, which can promote this type of infection. Candidiasis in the colon can also trigger it. Men with diabetes should see a doctor if they suspect a yeast infection on the penis. Nystatin creams can sometimes provide relief. However, this yeast infection can often come back.
Which can result from other conditions, such as an underactive thyroid gland,
chronic stress, Lyme disease and HIV.
Candida can be transmitted between people by direct contact, which is why it can be considered a sexually transmitted disease. A yeast-infected woman who has unprotected sex with a man can infect her lover, treat her own infection, and then re-infect the next time she has sex with him. If you or your lover have an active infection, you should be very careful to follow the safest sex guidelines until you are sure that you are both free from infection. During an infection or while receiving treatment, avoid vaginal intercourse, wash your hands or change gloves between touching your own crotch and your partner’s, and keep those sex toys really clean.
Although it is much less common than sexual transmission, the other main cause of penile yeast infection is the long-term use of antibiotics. The male body has a standard contingent of crotch-dwelling creatures, and antibiotics can rid the body of the good ones, allowing the normally occurring yeast to take over.
*Condoms with nonoxynol-9
Although not the same problem, this seems as good a place as any to warn you that I have seen occasional rumors in gay magazines that condoms with nonoxynol-9 added to lubricant can contribute to anal infections. This is very plausible given that we know that it can cause vaginal yeast infections. If this is a problem for you, try using a condom that does not have spermicidal lubricant.
* Continuous masturbation.
If your hands and toys are clean, this is not your problem.
* Poor personal hygiene.
Cleaning I’m sure I don’t have to elaborate this.
