What is male Candidiasis?
Genital candidiasis is not a disease exclusive to women, men can also suffer from it, and in fact it is a very common disease in men.t is a clinical reality that we frequently encounter.
The fungus candida albicans lives in the body on a regular basis and in symbiosis with other micro-organisms. Whether Candida infects the male genitalia depends on many factors, one of the most important of which is sexual transmission, but, as in women, it is not always possible to prevent Candida from infecting the male genitalia, is a micro-organism that is naturally present on the skin; candida fungus can develop in the penile area and lead to balanitis, or swelling of the glans, and other uncomfortable symptoms.
In general, the disease is more likely to affect immunocompromised patients.
Male genital candidiasis can become a chronic disease for objective causes even when all precautions are taken to avoid contagion.
Causes of male Candidiasis
It is very common that the Candidiasis is sexually transmittedGenital candidiasis is much more common in women than in men. However, this does not necessarily mean that the fungus Candida albicans grows out of control and causes the disease; the skin's own defences can act against the fungus.
In fact, there are environments more conducive to candida in a natural waythe skin folds penis are an ideal area for the development of the fungus, as is the penis of the penis. excessive hygiene through the use of soaps and substances that are aggressive to the skin.
When the immune system is depressed the risk factors for Candidiasis are increased. Fungal infections occur when the immune system is unable to defend the body against infection, as is the case with patients with HIV or those suffering from an autoimmune diseaseamong others.
The food can also be a risk factorCandida albicans is a yeast that can grow with an excess of sugars and carbohydrates in the body. Men with diabetes are more prone to Candidiasis because of the concentration of sugar in the urine.
Symptoms of male candidiasis
Candidiasis in men occurs mainly in the penis area. Its symptoms are itching, stinging that increases with scratching or urination, red or white rashes of the area. Itching may extend to the scrotum (skin of the testicles) and the entire perineal area and groin. In addition, a whitish coating and even lesions and pustules may appear and cause pain during sexual intercourse or urination. These irritant lesions may extend into the scrotum.
These specific symptoms in the genitalia may be accompanied by symptoms in other areas of the digestive system, such as the intestinal gas or stools of variable consistencyThe effects on the skin, and even on the mood.
Treatment of male Candidiasis
After assessing the results of the tests carried out, Biosalud will design a personalised biological medicine treatment that offers maximum guarantees of success. It is usually a combined treatment, which is carried out partly in our centre in Zaragoza and partly at home.
We use ozone, phytotherapy, electromagnetic bioregulation, focal magnet therapy, homeopathy, colon hydrotherapy, etc.... It will depend on whether the infection is local only at the genital level, or if there is also an intestinal, oral, etc...
