Can Male Yeast Infections Involve The Penis And Scrotum
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher. Thank you for tuning into this tutorial today. You may have seen some of my previous tutorials regarding menls yeast infections. Ilve made a few recently regarding jock itch. Another popular tutorial which many people have looked at is one regarding small white bumps on the penis. In this tutorial today, Ilm going to talk about a condition I see quite a lot in males and is basically an itching area of the private parts again of the penis and also scrotal and analrectal areas.
These tutorial clips Ilm going to do because theylre very important and you can understand why Ilve disabled comments on many of my tutorials. Many YouTube clips I look at are from health care professionals like myself that have gotten very inappropriate comments. Thatls why I donlt believe I should enable comments on these tutorials. Pardon me for taking that liberty. Letls continue on. This is an important tutorial because this is a condition I see in many men, and this is a condition that not many people talk about due to fear or embarrassment.
But I can tell you people out there now, women suffer from yeast infections we know that, but lots of guys suffer from them, too. And they hate them. Theylre embarrassing. Theylre uncomfortable. They just find them awful, but they live with them they deal with them. And they go and see their doctor and often get a cream and itls ineffective. The causes arenlt addressed and the condition goes on unabated and sometimes for years, and it can ruin a guyls life entirely. Ilve seen dozens and dozens, hundreds of men with this condition. Let me tell you now folks,.
This affects men from all backgrounds, all incomes, all cultures it makes no difference whether you are Indian, Muslim, American, or Irish, it makes no difference. If youlre a male and youlve got a penis, youlve got a obviously you have if youlre a male a typical guy can be prone to a yeast infection if the conditions are right. Remember, yeast likes dark it likes moist it likes warmth. And for this reason, obviously, the groin and the private area and the armpits, these are prime targets for Candida yeast.
Infections. The guys Ilve seen with yeast infections range over a wide range of men that Ilve seen with this condition. Ilve seen lots of mechanics with it. Constructions workers, geologists, taxi drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers Ilve seen airline pilots with it. Ilve even seen scientists with it and lab workers. Ilve got a couple of high court judges and many police officers many, many different men have this condition. And thatls because men are men. Men like beer. They like wine. They like spirits. They like eating the foods that.
Guys like to eat. They like football. They like hunting. They like all the things that guys like to do. As I say, it will not discriminate. This condition is not specific to a particular bluecollar worker or a laborer it makes no difference what type of guy you are. How is a man going to get the infection Well, the typical things we find are imbalances in the lifestyle. You may have read the case history of my father in my book. Dad liked sweet foods. He wasnlt really a big alcohol drinker, but he loved sugary foods. He liked.
A cigarette. He liked snacking on foods. And he didnlt pay a lot of attention to what the doctor said because the doctor was king, was god, the doctor gave drugs, the doctor never mentioned about a lifestyle, which his unfortunate. Men, for example, who drink alcohol, are prime targets for yeast infections, particularly, when they start taking antibiotics or pharmaceuticals regularly. Men who take drugs for acidification of the stomach these acid blockers are also prime targets. Guys who take any type of pharmaceutical drug over time. Guys who tend to work long hours or shift workers.
Men who wear tight clothing, coveralls, for example, or sit for long periods of time, who eat at weird times, wholve got shift work, who push their bodies hard. They go hunting and fishing, those sorts of things. These are the typical things that I will see. And often it will start off just with a small area, and a male can typically have an area here in the groin. It can be on the inner thigh. And youlll see a picture popping up now on your screen of a male with typical jock itch.
That I see. This is a picture of jock itch that youlll see right now. Jock itch will generally start on the inner thigh. It can also start around the scrotal region. It can also affect the anal or rectal region quite a lot. That whole area can be affected, and it can be itchy like drive you crazy. It can really drive you crazy. And sometimes the application of a lot of hot water on the region can be just absolute bliss for a person with a yeast infection. Unless the skinls cracked or the skinls irritated or open and then it.
Can be quite painful and irritating indeed. Some men find their itching a lot worse when the area is warm. Others find it so in bed. Others find it more when theylre working. And then the condition will come and go, come and go, and often there will be one major contributing cause underpinning this condition, one or two. There will be a dietary indiscretion and there will be some lifestyle habit, and those need nailing they need fixing up. Drugs are not going to help you. Skin treatments are not going to help you. You really need.
To treat causes. The penis infections Ilve seen quite a lot in men, too. Roll the foreskin back and youlll get like this creamy, cheesy white discharge all around there. It can be quite odorous. Prostate involvement is quite common in men, too. More common than you think. It can be a really burning, terrible pain deep inside where the prostate is. It can be quite painful. One male told me it felt like he was punched hard in the stomach. Others will tend to get a lot of pain in this region here. A yeast infection can affect men internally as well,.
Absolutely. A good urologist friend of mine has told me hels seen many men with prostate yeast infections. Not many medical doctors really understand that the prostate can be affected by yeast, but it certainly can. A woman has a short urethra, the male has a lot longer one, but a male can certainly pick up a very bad prostate yeast infection through a female with bad thrush. You may read about a 27yearold drummer, a wellknown drummer in a rock band here in New Zealand, that came to see me with a seriously bad prostate infection. On further inquiry,.
