Contrary to what most men believe, yeast infection targets any one and not just women. Although yeast infections are not considered as sexually transmitted infections (STI), having unprotected sex can pass them along. It's uncommon, but it does happen.
And how do you know if it is indeed a yeast infection? Symptoms include painful swelling and/or red dots at the tip of the penis; itching; white patches on the penis; dry, peeling skin; and pain or burning during urination. These sumptoms can also spread to the surrounding area including the thighs, buttocks and scrotum.
You're at a greater risk of developing genital yeast infections if you
have used antibiotics for a prolonged period of time, have compromised
or a weakened immune system or are a diabetic. However, don;t ring the
alarm bell just yet, yeast infections can be treated easily using
over-the-counter remedies. For men, these take the form of anutifungal
creams or ointments which are applied to the affected area. Oral
medications are available too but they're usually more expensive.
While having a yeast infection is not a pleasurable experience but it really is not such a big deal either. It's really common and poses no real threat. So don't worry too much if you've developed an intense itching in your nether regions, know the symptoms and you'll be able to cure it in no time.
