Men can develop yeast infections in their groin and penile regions. Candida Balanitis is a male yeast infection of the penis without demonstrable symptoms, often unnoticed until it causes irritation and embarrassment.
Penile yeast infection symptoms include:
- Redness, soreness, itchiness of the head of the penis
- Pain and burning during intercourse
- Painful urination
- Difficulty of foreskin-retraction
- Accumulation of cheese-like yeasty substance under the folds of the foreskin
Penile yeast infection can cause intense itch with or without visible red or pink rash in the groin folds and genitals. This type of yeast infection may spread to the inner thighs and genitalia including penis and scrotum.
Men with the above symptoms should seek medical treatment.
