 Candidiasis in men: what is the reason?

Candidiasis in men - an alarming sign

Candidiasis or thrush genitals caused by the yeast genus Candida, who constantly live on the genitals of women and to a much lesser extent - on the genitals of men, as men, they take root worse. At normal immunity does not occur in men candidiasis, even if the sexual partner is suffering from this disease.

If a man falls ill candidiasis, it is said that he had something wrong. The most common cause is some urologic disease or genital infections, which "willingly joins" candidiasis. Can start candidiasis and against the background of common diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, hormonal disorders Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous  Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous
   or frequently recurrent infectious and inflammatory processes. In any case, the reason for this decrease in immunity to be established.

 Candidiasis in men: what is the reason?


Candidiasis genitals in men manifests defeat of the glans penis and foreskin (balanoposthitis candidiasis). This area appears first swelling and redness, accompanied by itching and burning. Then, at the site of inflammation appear white cheesy raids. Swelling of the glans penis can cause disorders of urination and pain during urination. In addition, the pain may occur during intercourse.

But in general, candidiasis occurs in men is less pronounced than in women, and sometimes they just do not give it much importance, not going to the doctor. This is a wrong tactic, as a result of which Candida can spread to the internal genital organs and cause significant complications.

 Candidiasis in men: what is the reason?


The diagnosis of candidiasis in men is usually made by the characteristic manifestations of the disease. But this is not enough, because candidiasis is often associated with a bacterial infection, so the diagnosis should be confirmed by laboratory tests. For examination under a microscope takes a scraping from the head of the penis or prepuce. In the study of the scrapings under a microscope, you can see a large number of fungi of the genus Candida and yarns (pseudomycelium). Set all infectious agents (including bacterial) may result in the discharge of crop on nutrient medium (microbiological studies), this analysis will reveal not only pathogens, but also by their sensitivity to antifungal and antibacterial drugs.

Also carried out a general survey of the men (including urology) to identify the reasons for the decline of immunity.

Will the antifungal drugs?

Treatment of candidiasis held antifungal drugs which, when expressed manifestations of candidiasis appointed interior and local, while milder forms - only locally.

From the antifungal drugs are now the most popular drugs in which the active agent is fluconazole Fluconazole - used with caution  Fluconazole - used with caution
   (Diflucan, mikosist Mikosist - another remedy for thrush  Mikosist - another remedy for thrush
 , Medoflyukon, fljukostat Flucostat - do not take without medical supervision  Flucostat - do not take without medical supervision
   and others). Fluconazole is effective and not too toxic drug that is not heavy and not at advanced forms of yeast infection in men is enough to take one time. But if the thrush runs hard and it often recurs, it is a little reception, in which case the doctor prescribes fluconazole individual schemes, sometimes once a month for a sufficiently long time.

Topically for the treatment of candidiasis in men most commonly used antifungal creams and ointments. For example, clotrimazole cream or cream Makmiror complex with Nystatin and antibacterial drugs. The cream is applied with a thin layer on the glans penis and foreskin twice a day for a week. At the head of the penis may also make applications with 2% soda solution.

In addition, the survey must be conducted treatment of the underlying disease, which led to a decrease in the body's defenses and the appearance of candidiasis. Appointed agents that strengthen the immune system. Sometimes, when often recurrent and difficult to treat thrush patient first make an immunogram (study of immune status), and then based on the results of an immunogram prescribed medications, reducing the individual links of immunity.

Candidiasis in men - is a disease that is not always easy to treat. Sometimes, in order to deal with it, we have to undergo a full medical examination and treatment of all diseases identified.

Broad-spectrum antibiotics

Antibiotics - drugs is a bacterial, fungal, animal or plant origin, which are able to inhibit the activity of microorganisms. Initially used only natural antibiotics, over time their chemical structure has been well studied, it caused the attempts to create artificial (synthetic) antibiotics, but it turned out that it is economically disadvantageous. Currently used in medicine only one synthetic antibiotic - chloramphenicol.

The chemical structure of natural antibiotics continuously varied according to the settings - there were so-called semi-synthetic antibiotics, which make up the bulk of modern preparations of this series.

By the nature of its influence all antibiotics are divided into bacteriostatic antibiotics (they inhibit the multiplication of micro-organisms) and bactericidal (killing bacteria) effect.

Different antibiotics, and the way to which microorganisms they have an effect. This division is based on the different microorganisms prior to staining to laboratory examination under a microscope (Gram stain). Microorganisms with a dense shell hold paint well Gram, so called Gram positive. Microorganisms with less dense shell colored paint after washing the drug does not hold water - they are called Gram-negative. There are antibiotics that act only on gram-positive or gram-negative bacteria, and there are those who act and those on the other - they are called broad-spectrum antibiotics.

The mechanism of action Monural

Monural (INN - fosfomycin) - a broad-spectrum antibiotic that inhibits the proliferation of pathogens (bactericidal effect). Available drug known Swiss pharmaceutical company "Zambon Svittserland Co., Ltd." in the form of granules for solution, which is then applied through the mouth.

Monural mechanism of action is based on the fact that it inhibits the build cell walls of pathogens. The structural features of this antibiotic Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?  Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?
   allows it to act on the microorganisms which have lost their sensitivity to other classes of antibiotics, and applied (with synergism) in conjunction with antibiotics such as amoksitsillinm cephalexin and others.

Monural has antibacterial effect on the most common Gram-positive (eg, Staphylococcus and others.) And Gram-negative (eg, Escherichia coli, Proteus, and others.) Pathogens.

When administered Monural rapidly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, the maximum concentration in the blood is approximately two hours. The drug does not accumulate in the body, it is not decomposed by the liver and excreted unchanged via the kidneys (in this case created in the urinary tract, its high concentration that allows to carry out a short course of treatment) and partly in the faeces.
