    Hey guys,

    About a week ago I noticed some red unevenly shaped spots on the head of my dick, not a lot just a few. I didnt pay much attention to them. Then today I noticed that they were getting larger and more widespread. A thought crossed my mind that maybe I had an STD so I went online and low and behold I have Candida aka a male yeast infection. It seems confined to the head of my dick and not in my mouth (thrush) or armpits. It can be contracted a number of ways, including sexual transmission. Id like to say that I got it some very innocent way, but Im kind of a slut so sexual transmission is probably the way I got it.

    I also read that it is very difficult to get rid of. There are lots of treatments on the market it seems but Im having trouble finding objective information on treatments.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Okay I know my post is not quite as sexy as "how many times has your bf cheated on you" or " is there such thing as being bisexual" or "the Republicans under Ronald Reagan almost wiped out the world, who's fault was it? or " would you do the guy above you?"

    But it was a sincere look for some assistance. Thanks

    Male yeast infection isn't a difficult thing to clear up, the problem is the potential cause, if its purely just something you picked up, a treatment of over the counter fungal skin infections will usually work and it won't come back, it's very simple.. Something like lamisil will work fine (it's marketed as a treatment for athletes foot) however, you can also just go to the doctor, he'll tell you in a few seconds and probably just prescribe you a tablet to take that'll clear it up or send you down to the chemist with a name of a tablet/cream

    However, you can pick up w yeast infection because of a fee other things, bad diet, stress, medical problems and so forth, however, try a cream first, if it goes away and stays away its a one time thing.

    Btw, your body always has this fungas on you everywhere apparently, it gets outta line when something foes screwy and spreads.. So.. Mm.. That bit was interesting hearing that from my doctor (I got it on my back a few years ago)

    If you have any questions about what to use, go to the chemist ask to speak to an actual chemist working there, they'll be able to guide you correctly.

    I'm sure there's a cure somewhere. I'm more interested in the armpit thing. What exactly have you been doing with guys dicks?

    If it's chinese spotted dick, it will fall off in about 3 weeks, no need to worry.

    If it is a fungal (yeast) infection, buy some canesten or lamisil and apply it to the affected area. If it has spread into the urethra, you will have to take a conce off tablet of anti-fungal medication from your doctor. Keep it clean and dry. Most men get this in the summer, so I wouldn't freak out about it. Just see your doctor - it is always the best solution.

    i think everyone has yeast in their bodies to some degree.
    best thing would get stuff from your doctor.
    things that could help it would be a candida specific cleanse, or oil of oregano. hope that helps

    Ah yes, Candida albicans. I am sympathetic to your problem but I find it ironic that a post appeared in these forums today concerning the reuse of towels. Candida thrives in damp towels after you have innoculated the towel.

    See the doc. Treat it. Use a fresh towel that you have washed in ery hot water after each shower.

    There is no reason to be a slut with complications. icon_cool.gif

    The most obvious answer. I'm sure the doctor can prescribe you something stronger than Tinactin.

    I applied an athletes foot spray and it seemed to have cleared it up 90% of the way. I am traveling and forgot my jock itch spray, so I am applying triple antibiotic and Im feeling great. The redness has gone away for the most part as has the over sensitivity of the head of my cock.

    I have had a lot of things happening to me lately, all very stressful. Things are getting better for me physically, mentally and financially. Even my weight is starting to drop again on its own.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    I thought Candida was a Tony Orlando & Dawn song.

    prob best idea.

    i was experiencing pain in my lower stomach and urinating frequently and with pain. ...all my friends asked what was wrong and i said "i think i need to goto the hospital"

    they asked about symptoms and came to the conclusion that i had a yeast infection. after another couple of hours and INTENSE pain. i begged a for a ride to the hospitable, while they jsut wanted me to have some cranberry juice.

    turned out it was a kidney stone.

    lesson - dont listen to fuckers online or ur friends for health advice... see a doctor.

    If something is affecting your weight, and you are having physical signs that something isnt right with your body, you need to see a doctor. Its important to get tests done to make sure there isnt any other underlying issues.
    Hope its nothing serious but you should always "excuse the expression" nip things in the butt right away so that you can treat what ever it is while it started.
    Hope you get better!
