Common Male Yeast Infection Symptoms

This article will explore the various ways in which a yeast infection will manifest in a male. Men are obviously different in many ways, both in the way that they are shaped anatomically and in their personality and emotions. This article will explore the different signs and symptoms of a candida yeast infection a man is more likely to experience.

Common signs and symptoms males experience with a yeast infection include male-associated urinary and sexual problems as well as various digestive complaints:

  • Jock itch
  • Itchy scrotum or groin
  • Itchy feet or toes
  • Itchy ears or scalp
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Impotence
  • Prostatitis
  • Cravings for sweet foods or drinks
  • Desire for beer
  • Desire for confectionery or candy
  • Penis infections
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Urinary frequency or urgency
  • Painful intercourse
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Swollen scrotum

Is the male a beer or regular drinker of alcohol? Suspect candida if he drinks beers or other forms of alcohol like rum, bourbon, whiskey or other forms of alcohol regularly and complains of prostatitis, itchy skin, burping, bloating, and other symptoms listed here. Many practitioners miss this, but if beer (or alcohol, but commonly a beer) is consumed regularly and there are prostate issues it certainly makes sense to suspect the candida yeast infection which is being happily maintained by a steady supply or beer.

Other signs and symptoms of male yeast infection are:

  • Constipation
  • Bad breath
  • Bloating
  • Indigestion
  • Frequent intestinal gas
  • Frequent diarrhea, very loose stools
  • Irritability or mood swings
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Memory loss
  • Dry itchy flaky skin.
  • Itchy feet or athlete’s feet

Many men will have several of these signs and symptoms as mentioned above, but may also probably develop a craving for sweets, pasta, potato chips or French fries, hot dogs, take-out, candy, chocolate, coffee (with lots of sugar), soda drinks and similar sweet foods and drinks.  In addition, check out my complete listing of the major and minor signs and symptoms of a candida yeast infection.
