Can men get yeast infections?
Yes, guys can get a yeast infection from sexual contact with a woman who has a yeast infection. The same yeast that causes vaginal infections in women can cause infections of the penis in men. It doesn’t happen every time there’s sexual contact, but if you have a UTI it’s a good idea to abstain or get your guy to condom up. Signs and symptoms of a male yeast infection include a red rash, itching, and burning at the tip of the penis. Fortunately, most male yeast infections are easily treated with over-the-counter antifungal treatments, such as Monistat.
