How to cure yeast infection in men

Always start with the need to survey, even if a small thrush and there for the first time. This is necessary because a man can not be sure that it is thrush, and that it is not combined with any other infection, such as bacterial origin. The fact that the male thrush always occurs immunosuppression Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults  Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults
   - A healthy male thrush gets sick, even if it is his sexual partner. But with lowered immunity is activated not only fungal flora, but also bacterial - all streptococci, staphylococci, E. coli, which inhabit the surface constantly genitals without causing disease begin to actively proliferate and penetrate into the mucosa, causing inflammation. Therefore, preliminary laboratory research is needed, because of the results will depend on the treatment - or it will only antifungal, or combined (antifungal and antibacterial).

If thrush is prolonged and difficult, it is necessary to pass full inspection (better to start with a urologist) and find out why it has decreased immunity. And only on the results of this survey will be given treatment.

   men can be carried out in different ways, depending on the results of the survey and the nature of the flow of thrush. If thrush emerged after some minor illness or colds and flows easily, a special study of immunity may be waived. As a restorative treatment prescribed vitamin-mineral complexes, tempering procedures, the natural immune stimulant plant origin (Immunal, infusion of lemongrass, ginseng, Siberian ginseng, and so on).

With long-term, permanent recurrent thrush and being treated first identify the underlying disease that caused the persistent decline in immunity. At the same time reveal the changes in the immune system and they are no longer being treated only by means of bracing means, but with the help of medicines - immunomodulators Immunomodulators: a contract with the protective forces of the body  Immunomodulators: a contract with the protective forces of the body
 That affect the individual broken links of immunity.

With prolonged recurrent course of yeast infection in men is required to be appointed by mouth or by injection antifungals. But this is done only as a result of planting selections on the sensitivity of fungi to antifungal agents as random can be treated indefinitely, but each time the thrush will be repeated.

If the condition of man allows it, he is being treated on an outpatient basis, but especially constantly recurrent thrush is that it can spread to other organs and tissues, so if you suspect its spread and deterioration of general condition of the patient it is admitted and begin a more intensive treatment with the introduction of antifungals intravenously.

Topical treatment

Local treatment of yeast infection in men is also carried out anti-fungal drugs, but local action. This ointments, creams and solutions for topical application. One of the most popular antifungal drugs for local application is clotrimazole. This is an effective drug that is usually well tolerated.

   applied in a thin layer on the glans penis and the inner surface of the foreskin twice daily for 7-14 days. Then you need to be screened to confirm cure.

Before applying the cream application can be carried out with 2% soda solution or tincture of herbs (chamomile pharmacy, calendula, St. John's wort, yarrow, and so on). Such applications can be carried out independently by applying the cream, then lubricating the surface of the penis and the foreskin of an aqueous solution of methylene blue.

Treatment long flowing yeast infection in men is a challenge even for the urologist. Treat yourself as a disease - it only allows the disease to penetrate deeper into the body, thus obscuring all his symptoms. And when such symptoms become apparent, then curing the disease will be very difficult.
