Do Men Get Yeast Infections

by Sam Malone

Given the fact that yeast infestations in women are a very regular occurrence, it is not surprising to see a lot of people ask ‘do men get yeast infections’. Although relatively much less talked about, men and yeast infections are a common condition and a widely misunderstood one as well. However, most men will have at least one experience of a yeast infection in their life. However, most men never realize that they have even been affected by a yeast infection even though they are aware of the fact that it is a contagious condition. This is primarily because of the fact that men with yeast infections do not show up any prominent symptoms of the same, thus making the condition much harder to diagnose. The most common mode of infection when it comes to a yeast infection is during sexual intercourse. During this time the male urethra is exposed and vulnerable to the infection form the infected female. The yeast will then travel up the urethral canal before it settles in the prostate gland. Studies have shown that diabetics and uncircumcised males are at a greater risk of suffering from a yeast infection than compared to their counterparts. When discussing men and yeast infections, one must also keep in mind the fact that one may not necessarily fall prey to the infection after sexual intercourse with an affected female.

Because of the fact that the condition can cause a significant amount of discomfort, looking for male yeast infection cures is a very common task. First and foremost, it is important that the colon be cleansed. This is primarily because of the fact that yeast tends to grow more in an acidic environment. A colon cleanse will help remove all the waste and bacteria from within the body. This would therefore help in neutralizing the acidity. It is important to remember that you should avoid consuming any dairy products, grain or gluten content when doing a colon cleanse. Another very effective male yeast infection cure is to increase ones intake of coconut oil, whether in the form of pills or in liquid form. Garlic is another very useful substance that it highly regarded for its anti bacterial as well as anti fungal properties. You could consume a single clove of garlic, twice during the course of the day. Garlic would have a very beneficial effect on the yeast infection while also having a very good effect on your sinuses.
