Are Male Yeast Infection Symptoms different from women’s? Well, in one word..Yes!
Often times when men get penile yeast infections, they do not have any symptoms at all and therefore may not even know they have a yeast infection. However, when men do have symptoms, they can be terrible!
Male Yeast Infection Symptoms:
- Burning, itching or rash around the head of the penis. At times it can also burn during urination.
- Discharge is possible, but not typical unless the infection gets really bad.
- Flaking skin on the penis
Now, depending on the yeast infection, it can be a skin yeast infection, in which case you will have more of the redness, rash or flaking skin. However, if the yeast infection travels up the urethra during sex then it can actually settle in the prostate causing prostate problems later.
So, it is very important to get things checked out if you think you may have a yeast infection. Or, if your partner tells you that she has a yeast infection, odds are you probably do to, so get it checked.
This is just a very small list of the possible male yeast infection symptoms that relate more to physical symptoms. Note that there are many more possible symptoms that you probably would never imagine relate to a yeast infection, here are a few:
- Poor appetite
- Chronic fatigue
- Bloating and indigestion
- Frequent gas
- Bladder infections
Again, with all the problems that can be caused from having a penile yeast infection, it is VERY important you do something about it. Since you are on this site, you must have a notion that you have one, so make sure you do something about it right away before it gets worse.
