Author: admin, 16.12.2014Yeast infection (Candidiasis) is usually associated with women; unfortunately for the ill-informed though, penile yeast infection (male thrush) is also a common occurrence. In very simple terms yeast infection is an overgrowth of the yeast naturally found in the body in those warm and moist areas of the body. Penile yeast infection causes typically are unprotected sexual intercourse with a female who has vaginal yeast infection, anal sex with an infected person or oral sex with someone who has oral thrush. Yeast infection in men can sometimes go unnoticed for months; even years when there are no visible signs or symptoms. Natural unsweetened yogurt is quite a popular home remedy when looking for fast relief from the pain and discomfort associated with yeast infection. Drinking cranberry juice (unsweetened) twice daily will not only assist in clearing up the symptoms of penile yeast infection by restoring pH levels, it also is a great way in keeping yeast infection at bay. Aloe vera gel’s antifungal properties are great for soothing relief from the itching associated with male yeast infection.
Organic virgin coconut oil will not only stop symptoms like itching, burning and irritation when applied directly to the affected area(s) 3-4 times daily, it will also assist in healing any scratches or cracks which may be a consequence of yeast infection.
Over the counter treatment for male yeast infection which seems to have worked well is Monistat, a vaginal cream probably developed to treat yeast infection in women. Diligent use should clear up most of the yeast infection symptoms in about 7 days; some people experienced results in as little as 3 days. In conclusion: While treating male yeast infection it is imperative to wash and dry well the affected areas before applying your remedy of choice. The above remedies are by no means an exhaustive list of ways to treat yeast infections yourself.
Warning: When treatments do not bring about any relief from yeast infection symptoms, the yeast infection may be associated with another underlying chronic medical condition, namely HIV or diabetes. Whilst yeast infection in men is most definitely not limited to the genitals, this article specifically concerns itself with yeast infection in the male genitals also known as “jock itch”. This means that once the symptoms associated with penile yeast infection start to manifest, they can cause extreme discomfort and need to be treated as a matter of urgency. I recommend you do the yeast infection test as described below; then either try some of the treatments discussed in this article, or consult your doctor.
Other home remedies for yeast infections which are also very popular include garlic, tea tree oil, boric acid, etc. These conditions need to be addressed before any treatment to cure yeast infection will work. Most home remedies are generally safe to use and it may just get rid of your yeast infection. The more severe the candida, the slower you should work up to this number to prevent overwhelming die-off symptoms as excess yeast is killed off. The head of the penis (glans penis) is not exposed to air as is the case with circumcised men; the air actually keeps the head of the penis dry and cool.
