Yeast Infections Overview
Yeast infections can develop in both men and women. They areusually caused by the yeast known as Candida (therefore it is called candidiasis) and in men it can seriously affectthe mouth or genital area.
Weakened immune system, malnutrition and poor hygiene arethe main reasons for developing the yeast infection. Prolonged use ofantibiotics or the overdose of steroid medications might also be responsiblefor this condition. Men have one more way to be infected with the yeast andthat is the sexual intercourse with the women suffering from vaginal yeastinfection.
Symptoms of candidiasis in men include: problems withswallowing liquid and solid food, if there is an oral yeast infection. Patientsmight also suffer from itching and formation of the creamy bumps and thickcoating on the tongue. Penile yeast infection causes problems with urination andmay also lead to intense burning sensation when a patient starts to urinate.
If you want to get rid of the yeast infection, be preparedto change your diet and lifestyle. Yeasts grow on your body because there is somethingthat feeds them. It might be the sugar, beer or some other food you take(potatoes for instance) that help the yeast grow and you should eliminate thoseeating habits.
