Penile yeast infections on circumcised men are actually yeast infection from oral sex rare because the glans are always exposed to air. With uncircumcised men it is very common and once they are infected it can be very difficult to get rid of.
Many times men with a penile yeast infection will get the same itching symptoms that women get in their urethra as the yeast can travel up the urinary tract. This can be accompanied by a discharge not unlike women with vaginal yeast. It is possible for the candida yeast to get into the prostate gland but this is very rare. Risk factors for penile yeast infection include unprotected sex with a woman that has an active vaginal yeast infection. Oral sex with a person that has thrush or anal sex with a person that has an intestinal candida yeast infection. Condoms that are lubricated with Nonoxynol-9 also promote the growth of penile yeast infection and I would avoid them.
This spermicide also increases the growth of yeast in the vagina so you’re not doing either of you any favors by using these condoms. Antibiotics and diabetes are also risk factors as well for intestinal candida yeast infections. Intestinal candida is also a risk factor for any skin yeast or fungal infection found anywhere on or in the body. In a late stage penile yeast infection the skin will harden just like any skin yeast infection. This is caused by the skin cells literally turning into macrophages in defense of the body. This hardened skin cracks and is very painful.
