- Effects of yeast: the more fraught with neglect of health
- Among women
- When pregnancy
Candida species rarely affects men than women, as they are not very well take root on the surface of the male sex organs, and from the urethra washed out in the urine. The development of yeast infection in men is often said that in addition to reducing the immunity he has and even some sexual infection.
How to start a thrush in men
Men yeast Candida species may well be permanent inhabitants of the genitals. But normally they are usually small amounts and they are located on the surface of the skin or mucous membranes, without penetrating inside it. The way to penetrate the mucous membrane for them to offer:
- When immunity decreases (i.e., the protective properties of the mucosa);
- Useful suppressed natural microflora of genitals, which inhibit the reproduction of fungi;
- against the backdrop of some other, more sexually active infection (gonorrhea, trichomoniasis), which "opens the door" for the penetration of the fungus in the mucosa.
Sometimes a man for the first time a woman becomes infected with thrush, but in order to initiate the disease, also need additional reasons.
That is why when a male yeast infection symptoms they should consult a urologist and a complete examination.
How does thrush in men
Thrush begins with the appearance of burning and itching of the glans penis. It appears as painful intercourse, and sometimes (rarely) and when urinating. In the head of the penis appear redness, swelling, and white cheesy plaque (not always). Perhaps the appearance of erosions and ulcers on the glans penis and foreskin cracks. The genital area will appear a peculiar odor. All these are signs of Candida balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans penis and foreskin).
If the start defeat of the urethra (urethritis candidiasis), then to the discomfort and pain during urination or join thick white cheesy discharge from the urethra
Discharge from the urethra - common nuisance among women
What threatens man thrush
Threat of One: The spread of infection to the internal organs
Since the immune system is weakened, infection of the urethra spread to the bladder
Urinary bladder - structure and function
, Ureters and kidneys. It can also affect the internal reproductive organs men - prostate, vas deferens. Finally, the bloodstream infection can spread to all organs and tissues. So often with a sharp decrease in immunity, for example, against the background of AIDS or radiation therapy, which is used to treat cancer. If you do not treat candidiasis, it can lead to a heavy defeat all of the genitourinary system, and persistent infertility.
The threat of the second: the development of multiple sclerosis
It called hardening of the proliferation of connective tissue on the ruins of the natural tissue of a particular organ. Connective tissue like "patches" holes, which are formed as a result of injuries and illnesses. Unlike more ductile tissue, connective tissue hardly stretched, causing changes in the shape and function of sclerosed. In chronic thrush
Chronic yeast infection - how to win illness
When inflammation of the glans penis and foreskin, then there, then calms down, sclerotherapy can cause scarring of the foreskin, leading to its restrictions and the inability to expose the head. This condition is called phimosis
Phimosis - whether to go to extremes?
. Phimosis caused by sclerosis of tissues remain, even if completely cure thrush. To help in this case can only surgery.
The threat of a third: the development against the backdrop of phimosis paraphimosis
Paraphimosis - is infringing glans constricted foreskin, a condition that requires emergency medical (mostly surgical) care. If medical assistance is not provided on time, due to lack of power supply happens disadvantaged dying tissue of the penis. The patient's condition at the same time it is very heavy.
The threat of a fourth: a persistent violation of urination
Sometimes voiding remain after the treatment of candidiasis, it says that under the influence of a chronic inflammatory process has changed the nature of the mucous membrane of the urethra. The mucous membrane may increase in volume (hypertrophy) or appear in it are benign growths (granulomas), which interfere with normal urination. There may be a narrowing of the external opening and the urethra. Any obstacle to urine flow creates conditions for the stagnation of urine and the development of inflammation, the cause of which can be not only fungi genus Candida (candidiasis if not completely cured), but any bacterial infection.
The threat of a fifth: long-term inflammation of the glans penis can lead to violations of the sensitivity in this area, and sexual dysfunction, as it reduces the pleasurable sensations of sexual contact, including during orgasm.
