Itchy Male Organ from C. Glabrata, a
Different Kind of YeastPe
Yeast is a wonderful thing when it comes to bread and other baked goods,
but it’s not something a guy really wants on his manhood. Unfortunately,
yeast infections, though more common in women, do occur in men as well
and can be a male organ health concern. (If nothing else, the itchy male
organ that occurs is a major annoyance.) Usually when discussing such yeast
infections, the culprit responsible for the infection is a yeast known as
candida albicans (or c. albicans). But in some cases, the cause of that
infection is a slightly different yeast, known as candida glabrata (or c.
glabrata). And although they have similarities, there also are differences
between them.
Not as common
Candida glabrata is responsible for about 10% of female organ yeast
infections; it is not clear what the percentage might be in men, but it is likely
to be similar. As with c. albicans, c. glabrata can cause a very itchy male
organ in men, especially around the tip of the member. But there are other
symptoms associated with it as well. The itchiness is often accompanied by a
red rash and/or whitish spots, and there can be a burning sensation in the
member as well. The burning sensation often occurs while urinating,
indicating that the yeast has made its way into the urinary tract and created
an infection there.
C. glabrata on the manhood is a problem, but a bigger issue is if the yeast
spreads the bloodstream. It can potentially cause severe problems, such as
meningitis, although this is fairly rare.
Some more susceptible
Some people are more susceptible to c. glabrata than others – mainly people
whose immune system is compromised or suppressed. This would tend to
include people with conditions like HIV, cancer, and diabetes, as well as
newborns and those who are elderly.
It’s important to distinguish between c. albicans and c. glabrata because the
treatment is different – but unfortunately, their symptoms are very similar.
Microscopic and biochemical analysis is usually required for proper
diagnosis; some doctors make use of a process known as MALDI-TOF MS,
which is often a quicker way of obtaining a diagnosis.
Since most manhood yeast infections are caused by c. albicans, they are
typically treated with antifungal medication, most often fluconazole. But c.
glabrata is resistant to this strain of antifungal medications; to make things
more complicated, it seems to be able to develop resistance to other
antifungal medications rather quickly.
Once a definite diagnosis has been arrived at, a doctor will need to
determine what kind of antifungal treatment is most likely to be effective in
a particular case.
Preventing this itchy male organ problem is desirable, so appropriate steps
should be taken. Knowing the sensual health status of partners is helpful; if a
partner has a yeast infection, use of a latex protection, while not 100%
effective, can help lower the risk of picking up the infection from sensual
activity. Some may prefer to abstain from sensual contact altogether until the
partner’s infection has been treated and cleared up. This includes oral
sensual activity, as the infection can occur in one’s mouth as well as the
The itchy male organ and other symptoms caused by candida glabrata can be
challenging. The itchiness may be lessened by the use of a top notch male
organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil,
which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Often itchy skin is
made worse by scratching; re-hydrating the skin can help address that
concern. A crème with both a high end emollient (like shea butter) and a
natural hydrator (like vitamin E) can aid in keeping member skin
moisturized. The ideal crème will also include vitamin B5. Also called
pantothenic acid, vitamin B5 is a vital nutrient that is required for cell
metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue.
