Candida in men certainly isn't uncommon. It may seem that way because quite often the symptoms of candida are mistaken for other common ailments.
I must admit that the symptoms are similar to other conditions, and yeast overgrowth in men is rarely discussed.
It can be difficult to determine if what you are suffering from is a male yeast infection or some other illness.
Of course, if it's a penile yeast infection it's a little more obvious.
You can pretty much determine that by the itching or burning sensation at the end of the penis, along with a possible rash and thick white discharge.
Even a penis yeast infection can be confused with various sexually transmitted diseases. If you treat the problem as a simple yeast infection and don't have results after a week or so, then you probably should see a doctor to determine if it is something more serious.
Applying tea tree oil or garlic oil to the area two times a day for a week should do the trick if it is a yeast infection. If you've picked it up by having sex with a female that has a vaginal yeast infection, you need to be sure that she treats her infection, too, or you'll just get it again.
For other types of male yeast infections, you can experience sores in your mouth, skin rashes, jock itch, sinus problems, coughs, headaches, nail fungus, gastro-intestinal disorders and more.
Your body can be affected in many different ways when Candida is allowed to grow and spread in your system. Your immune system gets weaker and weaker unless you take action to help it get the growing fungus back under control.
Your body will do the work if you give it the things it needs to fight. It is often our own ignorance in what the body needs to keep a strong immune function that makes us our own worst enemy.
To your good health!
