Can Male Yeast Infections Involve The Penis And Scrotum?

August 14, 2019

Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher. Thank you for tuning into this video today. You may have seen some of my previous videos
regarding menls yeast infections. Ilve made a few recently regarding jock itch. Another
popular video which many people have looked at is one regarding small white bumps on the
penis. In this video today, Ilm going to talk about a condition I see quite a lot in males
and is basically an itching area of the private parts again of the penis and also scrotal
and anal/rectal areas. These video clips Ilm going to do because
theylre very important and you can understand why Ilve disabled comments on many of my videos.
Many YouTube clips I look at are from health care professionals like myself that have gotten
very inappropriate comments. Thatls why I donlt believe I should enable comments on
these videos. Pardon me for taking that liberty. Letls continue on. This is an important video
because this is a condition I see in many men, and this is a condition that not many
people talk about due to fear or embarrassment. But I can tell you people out there now, women
suffer from yeast infections; we know that, but lots of guys suffer from them, too. And
they hate them. Theylre embarrassing. Theylre uncomfortable. They just find them awful,
but they live with them; they deal with them. And they go and see their doctor and often
get a cream and itls ineffective. The causes arenlt addressed and the condition goes on
unabated and sometimes for years, and it can ruin a guyls life entirely. Ilve seen dozens and dozens, hundreds of men
with this condition. Let me tell you now folks, this affects men from all backgrounds, all
incomes, all cultures; it makes no difference whether you are Indian, Muslim, American,
or Irish, it makes no difference. If youlre a male and youlve got a penis, youlve got
a – obviously you have if youlre a male – a typical guy can be prone to a yeast
infection if the conditions are right. Remember, yeast likes dark; it likes moist; it likes
warmth. And for this reason, obviously, the groin and the private area and the armpits,
these are prime targets for Candida yeast infections. The guys Ilve seen with yeast infections range
over a wide range of men that Ilve seen with this condition. Ilve seen lots of mechanics
with it. Constructions workers, geologists, taxi drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers;
Ilve seen airline pilots with it. Ilve even seen scientists with it and lab workers. Ilve
got a couple of high court judges and many police officers; many, many different men
have this condition. And thatls because men are men. Men like beer. They like wine. They
like spirits. They like eating the foods that guys like to eat. They like football. They
like hunting. They like all the things that guys like to do. As I say, it will not discriminate.
This condition is not specific to a particular blue-collar worker or a laborer; it makes
no difference what type of guy you are. How is a man going to get the infection? Well,
the typical things we find are imbalances in the lifestyle. You may have read the case
history of my father in my book. Dad liked sweet foods. He wasnlt really a big alcohol
drinker, but he loved sugary foods. He liked a cigarette. He liked snacking on foods. And
he didnlt pay a lot of attention to what the doctor said because the doctor was king, was
god, the doctor gave drugs, the doctor never mentioned about a lifestyle, which his unfortunate. Men, for example, who drink alcohol, are prime
targets for yeast infections, particularly, when they start taking antibiotics or pharmaceuticals
regularly. Men who take drugs for acidification of the stomach – these acid blockers – are
also prime targets. Guys who take any type of pharmaceutical drug over time. Guys who
tend to work long hours or shift workers. Men who wear tight clothing, coveralls, for
example, or sit for long periods of time, who eat at weird times, wholve got shift work,
who push their bodies hard. They go hunting and fishing, those sorts of things. These
are the typical things that I will see. And often it will start off just with a small
area, and a male can typically have an area here in the groin. It can be on the inner
thigh. And youlll see a picture popping up now on
your screen of a male with typical jock itch that I see. This is a picture of jock itch
that youlll see right now. Jock itch will generally start on the inner thigh. It can
also start around the scrotal region. It can also affect the anal or rectal region quite
a lot. That whole area can be affected, and it can be itchy like drive you crazy. It can
really drive you crazy. And sometimes the application of a lot of hot water on the region
can be just absolute bliss for a person with a yeast infection. Unless the skinls cracked
or the skinls irritated or open and then it can be quite painful and irritating indeed.
Some men find their itching a lot worse when the area is warm. Others find it so in bed.
Others find it more when theylre working. And then the condition will come and go, come
and go, and often there will be one major contributing cause underpinning this condition,
one or two. There will be a dietary indiscretion and there will be some lifestyle habit, and
those need nailing; they need fixing up. Drugs are not going to help you. Skin treatments
are not going to help you. You really need to treat causes. The penis infections Ilve seen quite a lot
in men, too. Roll the foreskin back and youlll get like this creamy, cheesy white discharge
all around there. It can be quite odorous. Prostate involvement is quite common in men,
too. More common than you think. It can be a really burning, terrible pain deep inside
where the prostate is. It can be quite painful. One male told me it felt like he was punched
hard in the stomach. Others will tend to get a lot of pain in this region here. A yeast
infection can affect men internally as well, absolutely. A good urologist friend of mine has told me
hels seen many men with prostate yeast infections. Not many medical doctors really understand
that the prostate can be affected by yeast, but it certainly can. A woman has a short
urethra, the male has a lot longer one, but a male can certainly pick up a very bad prostate
yeast infection through a female with bad thrush. You may read about a 27-year-old drummer,
a well-known drummer in a rock band here in New Zealand, that came to see me with a seriously
bad prostate infection. On further inquiry, his girlfriend had quite a serious vaginal
thrush that we cleared up and got on top of the condition. Ilm going to cover that in another video.
Suffice it to say, these conditions are quite common in men like penis infections, prostate
infections, scrotal infections, thigh infections. And think about heat, think about itching,
think about redness, think about sugar cravings, then youlre thinking about menls jock itch. I hope this video was of use to you today.
Thank you.

    Yeast infections are extremely common, and men can get them whether they are sexually active or not. Antifungal creams are effective for treating them, and a penis health creme can help relieve the dryness and itching, as well as boosting overall penile health.

    ive got what looks to be "sebacious prominence". could this be yeast?

    Dr. Bakker, I worry about my dad's lack of hygiene despite the fact that he does have prostate cancer who already had an operation to help remove his prostate gland. What should he do if he has a yeast infection?

    Thrush can be very uncomfortable; treating it is crucial, but sometimes the itchiness requires extra help, such as a quality penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) with natural moisturizing agents.

    Hi, my penis is red on the top and has tiny little yellow spots on it what is happening

  • Reply MIchael Harrington September 11, 2015 at 5:15 pm

    Yeast infections are no joke. A visit to the doctor is in order if this is the case. But for less serious issues down there like chafing or dry skin, a penis health creme is the way to go. No visit to the doctor needed… just apply the creme once a day (takes only seconds) and enjoy the benefits of smooth penis skin.

    hi Dr., I would like to ask why is my testicle skin so dry its the first time though and even their are some wounds that burns as hell when I touch them

  • Reply Andrew Williamson November 13, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    Hi thanks for making these videos.

    I've had a reoccurring yeast infection for over 3 years now. I've tried over-the-counter creams, tablets, keeping it dry, cutting out sugar (i don't drink alchol or smoke) and i live a healthy lifestyle.

    A few years ago it was so bad i couldn't pull the foreskin back. I visited my doctor & he gave me cream for it. Since then I've treated it and it hasn't been as bad but it's nearly always red under the foreskin & unhealthy looking. I'm getting married soon & do not want to pass this to my partner and frankly I'm fed up having it all the time so I'm seriously considering circumcision. I would appreciate any thoughts you have on this? Is circumcision ever recommend by doctors in a case like this?

    I drink a lot of beer, but recently I was raped by a crackwhore. Now my balls are bright red, and they hurt. Red dots all over my groin. At times, It feels like I'm wearing fiberglass underwear, and this is very, very, very itchy stuff, and it looks exactly like Candida infections found on My profession involves a lot of sitting. It's growing. Not even embarrassed. Just want it to go away. All I havel for combating this infection is to dunk my balls in ice water, but it's only providing temporary relief.

    I am not sure if I am connecting things which are not connected, but when I was a teen I was in a snow storm and got very bad frostbite on my inner thigh and testicles. My dad helped warm the inner thigh, but understandably didn't try to help with my private area. Years later I dated a girl who had many yeast infections. The area of my testicles where I'd had frostbite has been oily and dry from time to time. I have used Cortisone and although it's helpful if I get sweaty in that area my skin gets dry and flaky. I suspect that her infections were her 'gift' to me, but I wonder if it makes sense that her infections would be given to me and I wonder if something like frostbite can make the skin more susceptible to yeast infections or eczema?

    How long does one need to take your products before the infection is gone, or is this something you have to maintain forever?

  • Reply Pawl2 May 14, 2016 at 7:02 pm

    I had a lot of anal leakage for about a month and my anus was leaking mucus, but also little white clumps that smelled….the only way i can describe it is, it smelled like yeast. I have changed my diet, and I have also getting tested for parasites because of worms in my stool. I feel a lot better, no more anal leakage, but I was wondering if you have seen that before.

    Bacterial Vaginosa is a type of infection males carry in the penis between the scrotum. please Doctor inform the public that men carry BV . thank you!!

  • Reply Christine Ewing July 25, 2016 at 12:15 am

    I was told it can be a reaction to an allergy I was also told that black people and Indian people get them a lot during the summer. Whenever I eat yogurt I get BV. I was part of a study and BV comes from a lot of things. I was also told that if your partner has anal sex with someone and comes home and has sex with you vaginally that BV can be passed to you. Hygiene wasn't the issue. I also get BV if I'm allergic to a particular mans semen. I remember getting it from a guy. men carry it too. thank you for responding but there is TRULY more to BV than just wiping. thanks Doc. you are Amazing!!!

    I have been self treating for candida for the past 3 weeks. I don't know if you find it valid , but I diagnosed myself using the spit test. anyway in the last 3 weeks I've noticed many of my symptoms going away. blurred vision , brain fog , headaches , muscle fatigue , and overall feeling of tiredness have all went away. I am still having frequent urination and an almost constant burning sensation at the tip of my penis. Although it has improved also. I have altered my diet and I'm currently taking a supplement of acidophilus. Any suggestions?

I bought some potassium permanganate off amazon ..container says not to put on skin cuz it can burn it.. I heard good things about It and wanted to try it for whatever it is I have.
