Treatment For Thrush in men

Our team can diagnose yeast symptoms, help you get the right treatment, and provide advice on prevention.

Yeast infections (thrush) are usually thought of as something that affects women, but both men and women can be affected. A yeast infection is caused by an overgrowth of the candida fungus and can be passed on through sexual intercourse, although it is not considered a sexually transmitted infection.

Male yeast infections treatment

In men, the symptoms of a yeast infection include irritation, redness, pain, or a burning sensation around the glans (head of the penis), and under the foreskin.

You may also notice a white penile discharge, the consistency of cottage cheese, accompanied by an unpleasant odour. Thrush can also make it difficult to pull back the foreskin.

Thrush can also affect the armpits, groin, or between the fingers, causing a red and scaly rash with itching and irritation.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please come in for an appointment as soon as possible.

If my partner has thrush, do I need to get treated also?
Yeast infections can be passed on through sexual intercourse, but this is not always the case. If you partner has recurrent thrush it is advised that you come in for an examination by a doctor or nurse, who can tell you whether or not you have the infection or need to take medication.
Why is thrush more common in women?
The fungus which causes thrush needs warm, moist conditions to grow. Unlike the vagina, the glans (head of the penis) does not provide these conditions, unless there is a foreskin constriction.
What are the causes of male thrush?
Sometimes a case of thrush can be triggered after taking a course of antibiotics. Conditions such as diabetes, which lead to high levels of the glucose in the blood, can also be a factor. Avoid heavily perfumed soap and shower gel, which can cause irritation, and use a condom with your partner if they are experiencing recurrent thrush symptoms.
