Do Men Have Symptoms When They Contract A Yeast Infection?

August 12, 2019

Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher with another question. This is a guy’s question. Eric, do men have symptoms when they contract
a yeast infection? That’s a good question. In fact, some doctors
don’t even believe that men can have yeast infections. And I’ve heard on a few occasions
when a male patient said to me, my doctor doesn’t believe I’ve got a yeast infection
because he said I haven’t got a vagina, how can I have a yeast infection? Men obviously haven’t got a vagina, well,
we know that, but how are men manifesting signs and symptoms of a Candida yeast infection? In Chapter 3 of my book, you can read all
about this in great detail. I’ve written quite a lot on the different bodily systems in yeast
infections, but I’ve also written a section on how to recognize a male yeast infection
patient, how to recognize the female, and how to recognize the child. So when you read about the male, you’ll start
seeing things like lots of gas, bloating, burping. Men often do these things, and sometimes
men do them way more than they should. Itching, itching different parts of the body; it could
be ears or scalp or any part of the body could be recurrently itching. A common thing that
I find with males is itching the groin area. And I’ve written about this in my book and
don’t laugh, it’s true. If you go to a bar or grill, you know one of these areas where
people drink a lot of alcohol, and you’ll see guys there itching themselves, and sometimes
they don’t even know about it. They’ll do it subconsciously. Females tend to be more
discrete. I grew up with a dad who had a yeast infection
for many years, and dad was always burping and bloating and farting. So those are three
chief things that you’ll see with males. Guys who desire sweet foods, it’s a key link between
a strong craving in a male and a yeast infection because these bugs need feeding. And as I
write in my book, the bugs are calling your name; they’re calling your name. I want something
to eat; I need something sweet. And, of course, what are you going to do? You’re going to
have a beer or you’re going to have a piece of chocolate or a scoop of ice cream. All
these things feed up that male yeast infection, and how is the body going to respond? (I believe
he burped here). So when we’ve got yeast inside our digestive
tract, we’ve got what I call fermentative dysbiosis. There are many authors who write
about this. Liz Lipski is a well-known author with her book, Digestive Wellness. There are
many authors you can read about who’ve written about these particular types of problems. I hope that answers your question about the
male symptoms of a yeast infection. Thank you.
