It is important that you know the most common candida symptoms in men so that you can get the infection treated as soon as possible. Candida infections are more common in women, but most men don’t realize that they can get candida infections as well. Candida infection (also known as yeast infection) can occur both externally and internally. In men, the most common yeast infections are ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch. Yeast infection is caused by a fungus called Candida Albicans. This fungus lives on your skin along with other natural bacteria in your body. Sometimes, the candida fungus may overproduce and cause candida infections on your skin.
Fatigue is one of the most common candida symptoms in men. When your body’s natural bacteria fights off the candida fungus, your immune system is temporarily weakened. Because of your weakened immune system, you become more prone to invasions by parasites. The parasites and yeast rob your body of nutrition. The parasites thrive on yeast while yeast feeds on your body’s sugar, gluten, and other nutrients. This causes you to feel tired and lethargic even though you did not do anything tiring during the day.
Tenia pedis or Athlete’s Foot is also one of the signs of yeast infection in men. It is caused by candida overgrowth in your colon. It is also caused by prolonged use of wet or sweaty socks. If you wear tight shoes all day and you do not get air circulation in your feet, the moisture and warmth in your feet creates an ideal environment for a yeast infection such as athlete’s foot. You can use an anti-fungal cream to treat this condition. For severe cases of athlete’s foot, you may have to take oral antibiotics.
Jock itch is also one of the candida symptoms in men. It is caused by systemic yeast and overexposure to sweaty or wet clothing. Jock itch usually appears in your buttocks, upper thighs, and groin area. The symptoms of jock itch are red, scaly patches on your skin that may also blister and ooze. The patches are usually redder on the edges. Jock itch usually does not appear on the penis or scrotum, but may be transferred to another person via sexual intercourse.
Oral or mouth thrush is also a symptom of candida infection. Candida attacks your mouth’s mucous membranes and affects the roof of your mouth, the inside of your cheeks, tongue, and even the esophagus and throat. Mouth thrush usually appears as white, yellow, or cream-colored spots that are slightly raised. The spots are painless but can bleed if you try to scrape them off.
Men may also experience other candida symptoms such as gastritis, migraines, thickened mucus in the throat and nose, joint pain, muscle pain, allergies, asthma, and autoimmune diseases such as Crohn's disease and fibromyalgia. Take note of these symptoms and consult your doctor as soon as you notice them. You doctor can recommend topical or oral medications for your yeast infection..
