The yeast infection men get can go undetected unless it is a penile yeast infection.
The proper name for a yeast infection is Candida albicans or Candidiasis.
Candida in men is not uncommon, although it isn't talked about nearly as much as Candida in women.
If a man gets a yeast infection on his penis, he can experience burning, itching, a rash, or a thick white discharge.
Strangely, you can actually have a mild penile yeast infection and not experience any symptoms in that area.
Often, those types of infections are passed back and forth between men and women during sexual intercourse. That doesn't necessarily mean that you didget it from a woman, just that you could.
There are some simple home remedies you can use for male yeast infection treatment that include swabbing the area with tea tree oil or garlic oil twice a day for a week. (You'll find both of those for a couple of dollars at Puritan's Pride).
It's also a very good idea to take some good quality probiotics (I prefer Florafood) to help build up your friendly bacteria and fight the infection from the inside out.
Apart from affecting the genitals, there are other yeast infections men get that are often not diagnosed as such. The symptoms are similar to so many other ailments that the real cause can be easily overlooked.
These are just a few of the many candida symptoms from yeast infection men experience as a result of an overgrowth of yeast in their system.
Because yeast infections almost always begin in the digestive tract, it is important to treat the cause, not just the symptoms. Cleanse your colon with a good herbal and fiber mixture that will rid your body of the offending fungus. Herbal Fiberblend is one of the most reliable cleanses available. That's the one I use myself and recommend to my own friends and family.
Be sure that any cleanse you use has a combination of both soluble and insoluble fiber as well as a number of antifungal and antiparasitic herbs. It will do the job much more effectively.
Not only do you need to cleanse, you also need to rebuild. The yeast has grown out of control because your immune system was low on friendly or good bacteria. You need to rebuild their numbers by taking quality strains of acidophilus and bifidum. Be sure that the quality is guaranteed until a specified expiration date, not just at time of manufacture. Florafood is a product you can trust.
If you have a severe case, you may also want to consider adding some garlic supplements to your regime. Garlic has antifungal properties and will help kill off the candida fungus. Bear Paw Garlic is a more potent garlic than you'll normally find and it's odorless, which can be a blessing to your friends. :-)
There are other recommendations for a candida cure but those three should do the trick in most cases of yeast infection men develop. By the way, while you are suffering from Candida, it is important to cut back on the sugar and carbohydrates. Yeast fungus feeds on sugar and yeasty foods, so do yourself that favor.
