It may sound kinda stupid?? But can a guy get yeast infection from a girl? Like if the outer skin (Male) had contact with the fluid from a female that has yeast infection???
Yeast infection on a male???
Yes, but yeast likes a warm, moist place to grow. You can't do much about the warm, but you can control the moist.
Shower regularly and be sure to towel off completely. Baby powder applied to your genitals after you towel off will help dry things up, too.
If you have a yeast infection on your penis, an over-the-counter medication like Monistat is available from your local pharmacy.
Here is what Monistat's website says:
It is possible (though not common) for a sex partner to develop a yeast infection. If you are treating a yeast infection --- or think you have one, but haven't started treatment for it --- and your partner has penile itching, redness, or discomfort, he should contact his physician. Your partner's physician should know you are treating yourself for a yeast infection (or suspect you have one) so a precise diagnosis can be made.
Like the irritation is on my pubs area between my inner thigh and sacks, its red, ichy and has lumps like a bug bite. Theres no discharge or anything, no bursting, no white puss or anything also, No signs of fluids. Well, let me just say I thought it was a couple of bug bites for awhile and thought nothing of it but its been bout 3 weeks since it showed up so now Im kinda worried. If it is a std or anything like that, the closest thing i can think of is yeast infection.
Anyways, let me try out the over the counter Monistat. I hope its nothing seriuos, kinda scaring me.
I really appreciate your help and for others that may advise me on more things.
Also, Ive never been to a clinic about these things before so Im kinda nervous. Plus, Im on a realllly tight budget and worry bout finacial situations if it comes down to me having to spend money. Can anyone advise me to a clinic that may be cheaper then other places but also good in Orange County or close to Orange County??
What you describe sounds exactly like jock itch (i.e., a yeast infection).

Hey SteveA, I think i may be Jock itch or also known as a yeast infection. If it is a Jock itch, it may be Tinea incognito, I looked it up and researched it on the web and many of the pictures and discricptions had A LOT of similarities. Just mine is a small and not that bad as the pictures show. So, to make sure Im heading over to the clinic (planned parenthood) for a for sure diagnose. Thx guys, ill let you guys know how it turns out.
A good treatment for jock itch and other yeast infection is Miconazol 7. It is usually cheaper and can be used for a guy or a girl.
