How to treat thrush on the penis


Although candidiasis affects women more often, men can also get genital candidiasis. Typically, this occurs after unprotected sex with an already infected partner. Infection usually occurs on the surface of the skin of the penis. Candidiasis of the penis often affects men who have not undergone circumcision. This is because the head of the circumcised member is always open, because of which it remains dry and cool, while the fungus needs heat and moisture to grow.

Causes of the disease and risk factors

Thrush in men on the head of the penis is a serious fungal disease that requires special treatment. It is caused by a yeast-like colony of fungi of the genus Candida.

"Cunning" fungi in "sleep mode" are in the body of almost any person, but under favorable conditions for them begin to multiply intensively. Candidiasis spores turn into numerous colonies, filling in more and more new spaces, that is, not only the head, but also the foreskin and the urethra. In a complicated form, fungi "capture" the nearest skin and spread their toxins into the bloodstream.

Important! Only a urologist will be able to fully determine the candidiasis of the head of your penis and prescribe adequate treatment!

You risk getting sick if:

  • the sexual partner has carriage or a diagnosis of candidiasis,
  • you have diabetes or other “failures” in the endocrine system,
  • frequent acute respiratory infections,
  • weight problems (obesity),
  • severe infections (tuberculosis, HIV infection),
  • chronic infections of the genitourinary system, gastrointestinal tract,
  • vitamin deficiency (especially B vitamins),
  • weakening of the immune system,
  • acute allergic reactions,
  • errors in personal hygiene,
  • trauma or microtrauma of the penis,
  • stressful situations, depression,
  • prolonged use of antibiotics or hormonal drugs,
  • oncological diseases and their treatment,
  • bad habits (smoking, alcohol abuse),
  • heat, summer.

Forms of the disease

Thrush on the penis has two forms - acute and chronic.

The acute form, as a rule, begins immediately, with a sharp manifestation of the first symptoms and responds well to treatment.

The chronic form is long-lasting and occurs with periods of remission (lull) and relapse (exacerbation). The chronic form cannot be cured, the manifestations of the disease can only be suspended for a while.

Important! The first signs of penis candidiasis are noticeable after sexual intercourse, but after a couple of hours - they can "hide". The next "surge" may occur after repeated sexual intercourse.

Thrush in men and its symptoms (how does the glans penis look)

Symptoms of candidiasis are extremely unpleasant, especially if the disease does not proceed in a latent (asymptomatic) form. Here are the main ones that are visually distinguishable on the head of a member:

  • hyperimpaired spots, with a wetting surface and a grayish coating,
  • swelling of the head and its increase in size,
  • the formation of bubbles and crusts,
  • foci of inflammation and erosion,
  • microcracks and microtrauma from scratching,
  • inflammation of the foreskin.

To the "troubles" on the head are joined:

  • discharge in the form of “curd flakes”,
  • peroxide odor
  • unbearable itching, burning sensation and soreness when urinating,
  • palpation - soreness of the inguinal lymph nodes,
  • during intercourse and erection - sharp pain, discomfort.

Disease complications

Self-medication or improper therapy leads to complications - the thrush of the genital organ not only does not disappear, but also entails other diseases. Among them are especially dangerous:

  • Urethral granuloma. The action of the fungus on the urethra - the urethra causes its inflammation, swelling and, subsequently, contributes to thickening of the walls and narrowing of the canal. These changes are benign and cause the formation of granulomas. Urination becomes problematic, urine is not excreted from the body in full. Her stagnation favors the attachment of a bacterial infection. And even after the treatment, violations with the release of urine can remain for a long time.
  • Vesiculitis and then prostatitis. Incorrect treatment or advanced fungal infection harms not only the process of urination, but also the free passage of sperm. The ejaculatory tubules are clogged. Candida fungal colonies enter the prostate, causing inflammation - prostatitis (which can become chronic).
  • Impotence and infertility. Due to the manifestations of thrush, the innervation of the mucous membrane of the glans penis is reduced. The feelings of "love joy" leave much to be desired, and then the desire completely disappears. And if fungal prostatitis joins, the matter is very bad - impotence and even infertility are provided.
  • Infection with other infections. Toxins secreted by candida fungus dramatically violate the body's defenses and “attack” the mucosa. As a result, the altered mucosa becomes extremely susceptible to sexually transmitted diseases, which are treated by other methods for a long time, and can also leave their mark on the rest of their lives.

With improper treatment of lesions with candidiasis of the penis, they often lead to phimosis (painful narrowing of the foreskin) and paraphimosis (pinching of the glans penis), which require surgery under stationary conditions.

What is candidiasis

Among the inhabitants of the microflora of the human body that help its work, there is the Candida albicans fungus of the Candida genus. It belongs to yeast microorganisms, located on the mucous membranes. While a person is healthy, the fungus does not manifest itself, but with a decrease in immunity, a sharp growth of the colony occurs, especially in a warm and humid environment. Such a reaction leads to the development of an infection - candidiasis or thrush.

The disease most often affects the female genital organs, which have a favorable environment for the reproduction of the fungus - acidic, moist and warm. Men are less susceptible to infection. This is due to uncomfortable conditions for fungal infection - alkaline environment and the external location of the genitals. A sharp drop in immunity can provoke:

  • balanitis - superficial candidiasis affecting the glans penis,
  • candida urethritis - with an ailment, the scrotum and skin of the groin area are affected by inflammation, the fungus settles on the urethral mucosa, causing urination problems.

The cause of thrush in men can be sexual contact with an infected woman. If a person is healthy, then treatment of candidiasis in men is not required in this case - the body's immune cells will cope on their own. With a weakened protective barrier, pathology development factors become:

  • genital infections
  • hormonal imbalance,
  • diabetes,
  • overweight
  • metabolic disease,
  • the use of antibiotics, hormones,
  • endocrine system diseases
  • drinking alcohol
  • stressful situations
  • psychological stress.

Symptoms and features of the course in men

When signs of the disease are found on the genitals, men panic, but are embarrassed to consult doctors and often self-medicate. It is important to know the symptoms of infection - advanced candidiasis can lead to cystitis, inflammation of the prostate gland, urogenital diseases, impotence. Characteristic signs with candidal balanitis:

  • swelling, red spots on the glans penis,
  • the appearance of a white curd coating,
  • burning, itching and pain during intercourse,
  • increased libido as a result of irritation of nerve endings,
  • the presence of a sour smell.

It is necessary to begin treatment of candidiasis in men until the disease begins to progress. As the infection develops, lesions of the skin of the scrotum, inguinal folds are observed, which leads to candidal urethritis, which is characterized by symptoms:

  • frequent urination,
  • formation of peeling in the foreskin,
  • the appearance of wounds, superficial erosion with bleeding,
  • cramping, burning when urinating.

How to treat candidiasis in men

When symptoms of the disease appear, it is necessary to consult a doctor, take a smear, do a laboratory test to identify the causative agent of the infection. Only after this, treatment for candidiasis in men can be prescribed. Self-control of the disease can activate the inflammatory process. Dermatologists prescribe:

  • local application of ointment, cream,
  • oral antifungal medication.

To treat male thrush, experts recommend:

If the disease is diagnosed on time, men can treat thrush with ointments and creams. Medicines are applied to the affected areas, have few contraindications. The doctor must correctly diagnose and select a remedy. Preparations for the external treatment of candidiasis in men differ in their effect. Nystatin-based antifungal antibiotics quickly kill colonies of microorganisms. These include:

There are two large groups of antimycotic ointments that have different effects on infectious agents:

  • azoles - contribute to the destruction of the cell membrane of the fungus, stop its reproduction - cream Clotrimazole, Miconazole,
  • allylamines - inhibit the development of microorganisms, cause their death, blocking the biosynthesis of stearins - Terbinafine, Mikonorm.

Systemic medication

When the disease is started, tablets are used to treat candidiasis in men. Their dosage and course is determined by the doctor. Medications solve several problems. Dermatologists are prescribed to take a man with thrush:

  • antimycotic drugs - Flucostat, Diflucan,
  • antifungal antibiotics - Natamycin, Pimafucin,
  • fortifying vitamin complexes,
  • immunomodulators that increase protective forces - Viferon, Immunal,
  • restoring the intestinal microflora, the balance of microorganisms - Linex, Bifidumbacterin.

Signs of thrush in men

Candidiasis in men most often occurs on the head of the penis, and you can judge the appearance of the disease by the following symptoms:

  • The foreskin and head swell, redden.
  • In the same places there is a cheesy coating.
  • There are sensations of itching, sometimes burning during an erection or urination.
  • Erosion or sores on the head appear.

With severe inflammation of the head, a disease develops called candidiasis balanitis, which requires immediate medical attention and well-chosen treatment.

Local drugs for the treatment of thrush in men with candidal balanoposthitis

The use of creams and ointments is very effective in the early diagnosis of the disease in men. With the development of infection, local antifungal agents help the treatment of candidiasis as part of complex therapy. Dermatologists prescribe patients and drugs individually. The medicine is applied in a thin layer on the inner surface of the foreskin, the glans penis, which should be clean and dry. Popular drugs for candida balanoposthitis:

This effective antifungal agent destroys the cell membrane of fungi. Its active substance is miconazole citrate. It is important to determine the sensitivity of the fungus to the drug. The cream is applied to the affected part of the penis with a thin layer before absorption. When using miconazole, the following should be considered:

  • the cream is applied in the morning and evening,
  • the course of treatment is up to four weeks, determined by the doctor,
  • contraindications - diabetes mellitus, renal, liver failure,
  • side effects - irritation, allergy.

Chronic and genital candidiasis in men

Male thrush, which occurs not only on the head of the penis, but also on the skin in the inguinal zone, and in the urethra or in the prostate gland, is considered genital candidiasis. A man will be able to recognize the disease by the characteristic white plaque that occurs on the mucous membranes and on the skin. The main symptoms of genital thrush in men include:

  • Burning and soreness, itching when urinating.
  • Discomfort during sexual intercourse.
  • White curd coating on the penis.
  • The occurrence of erosion and red spots in the inguinal zone and on the genital organ.
  • Genital edema and redness.
  • When the disease is neglected, touching the penis causes discomfort, and white mucus is released along with urine.
  • Sour unpleasant odor of the genitals.

The pain and itching when urinating is due to the fact that a fungal infection got into the urethra.

Candidiasis itself is not dangerous, but it must be treated.

And not only because he has rather unpleasant symptoms, but for the reason that in the absence of correctly selected therapy, the disease can become chronic. And there is also the possibility that a man’s fungal infection has developed as a result of some sexually transmitted disease, as a kind of reaction of the body to the disease.

Another danger of this disease in men is that during its development very often under the foreskin an accumulation of pus forms, as a result of which the entire penis becomes inflamed. Thus, if you do not carry out appropriate treatment, you can provoke an inflammatory process in the genitourinary system, in the kidneys, etc.

Chronic candidiasis usually goes through exacerbation and remission. The disease is aggravated often with prolonged use of antibiotics, with a decrease in immunity, with diseases associated with the thyroid gland, as well as infection with genitourinary and venereal infections.

If a man has thrush, then, first of all, it is an alarming signal of the body that there was a failure in the immune system, and the body's defenses have weakened. If you immediately take measures and not only begin timely treatment of candidiasis, but also try to make every effort to strengthen immunity, then the ailment will disappear very quickly. Thus, it is also possible to avoid the transition of the disease into a chronic form.

The main causes of candidiasis in men include the following:

  1. Frequent stressful situations, depressive states.
  2. Long and uncontrolled antibiotic treatment.
  3. Various internal diseases, such as diabetes.
  4. Obesity, nutritional errors, frequent use of sweet and starchy foods.
  5. The lack of certain vitamins and minerals in the body.
  6. Failures in the metabolic processes of the body.
  7. The defeat of infectious diseases of the genitourinary system.
  8. Various diseases that reduce immunity.
  9. Hormonal changes.
  10. Lack of thorough personal hygiene.
  11. Unprotected sex with a woman suffering from candidiasis.

All of these situations create suitable conditions for the propagation of yeast-like fungi, which provoke the development of the disease in question.

Penis erosion

The occurrence of redness and erosion on the head of the male genital organ always indicates an inflammatory process that develops for one reason or another. The culprit of this is often an ordinary thrush caused by a fungal yeast infection.

Erosion is a deep damage to the epidermis or mucous membrane, causing discomfort. With candidiasis, erosion occurs on the head of the penis under a characteristic white coating, which is considered one of the main symptoms of the fungus.

In order to eliminate such lesions of the mucous membranes and skin, it is necessary to cure the disease that triggered their appearance. In this case, we are talking about candidiasis, but it is also worth paying attention to the symptoms of papillomavirus infection in men.

Elena, 45 years old. I began to think that my thrush had gone into a chronic form - I’ll only recover, when relapse occurs again. The gynecologist advised to send her husband for analysis. Barely persuaded him to go to the clinic. To my surprise, it turned out that he is a carrier of infection. We were simultaneously treated for candidiasis, we no longer remember the disease.

Vladislav, 35 years old I did not expect that acquaintance with the beauty would end badly - just did not use a condom. The penis became red and inflamed, there was severe itching and burning. I thought that I had caught something venereal, but it turned out to be candidiasis. The doctor recommended doing baths with soda solution, smearing the drug Fluconazole. I had to be treated for 3 weeks.

Anastasia, 38 years old, got sick with a thrush and infected her husband. I was treated, the doctor said that in men in this situation, the body itself will cope with the infection. Unfortunately, it didn’t work, and she couldn’t send him to the hospital. My gynecologist advised me to buy clotrimazole and lubricate the glans penis twice a day. The drug helped to quickly cope with candidiasis.


To verify the reliability of the proposed diagnosis, be sure to take tests. This procedure will allow the doctor to determine the stage of the disease, exclude other infections and balance the therapy.

  • A smear from the weeping surface of the head - in order to find out the size of the colony of fungi. The analysis is done using a microscope, with an accuracy of 75 percent.
  • Bacteriological examination of discharge from the urethra. Allocations are applied to the nutrient medium in order to determine the sensitivity of the infection to the drugs, in order to select drugs and quickly “deal with” the thrush.
  • General analysis of blood and urine - to establish the general state of health of the patient and the presence of chronic diseases.

So that the analysis shows a reliable result:

  • surrenders no earlier than two hours after the last urination,
  • a smear from the surface of the foreskin is desirable to take before taking a shower,
  • sowing is extremely important to pass before taking various medicines.

The main methods of treatment

Drugs of various forms will help cure thrush. These are mainly creams, ointments, solutions, as well as tablets and capsules. The main principle is an integrated approach. Therapy includes: antifungal, anti-inflammatory, restorative treatment.

Important! Usually, men feel a significant improvement after the first use of ointments, creams and solutions. At the same time, thrush, or rather its symptoms, disappear from the glans penis. But this is not a reason to stop treatment! Only the results of repeated tests can confirm the absence of the disease.

The most effective drugs

  1. Ointments (creams):
  • Clotrimazole. Quite inexpensive and widely used ointment (cream). It will help get rid of not only fungal infections, but also cure inflammation. Distribute in a moderate layer on the skin areas “corroded” by the fungus. It is applied 14 days.
  • Pimafucin. A wonderful ointment that is perfect from the first days of the disease. It contains an antibiotic, which contributes to the rapid healing. With frequent application (four times a day), it can heal in two weeks.
  • Triderm. Perhaps the most effective means of triple action, since it contains an antifungal drug (clotrimazole), a drying and antiallergic (betamethasone) and antibacterial (gentamicin). Instantly stops pruritus, weeping, and inflammation. With regular use (at least twice a day), only two days are applied.

  1. Capsules (tablets)
  • Fluconazole Capsules used to destroy any type of thrush. Quickly relieves: itching, burning, soreness and unpleasant discharge.
  • Forkan. The drug acts through the blood, contributing to a speedy recovery.
  • Futsis. With one tablet, prolonged action can be cured in seven days.
  • Pimafucin. Superdrug in capsule for oral administration. Carefully consider the dose and sequence of administration.

The effect of drugs will increase if:

  • exclude, if possible, sexual activity during treatment, use a condom,
  • restrict yourself from visiting public pools, baths, saunas,
  • diligently observe personal hygiene: daily (several times a day) wash with liquid baby soap with a weak solution of furacilin or potassium permanganate,

Soap in a wash piece is not good! It is the carrier of the disease!

  • Do not use too hot or cold water for washing (so as not to cause an increase in inflammatory processes). Try to wash away all the secretions from the foreskin,
  • use disinfectant powders: dermatol, streptocide or xenoform to dry the weep,
  • choose underwear by size, preferably from cotton and change it daily,
  • take B vitamins and other general strengthening agents,
  • to refuse from bad habits.

The best traditional medicine

  1. Decoctions, infusions, teas:
  • A decoction of chamomile and succession, which has a disinfectant, wound-healing, soothing, anti-inflammatory effect.
  • "Dill water". The broth is prepared from the stems, leaves and roots of dill, chopping them finely. Prepared dill (about 200 grams) is brewed with 3 glasses of boiling water. Boil for ten minutes. Warm broth wash the head of the penis three times a day, until recovery.
  • Infusion of calendula and St. John's wort will please with antifungal, antimicrobial and wound healing effect.
  • An “astringent” infusion with oak bark will help relieve itching and dry the weeping tissue. It is enough to pour one tablespoon of pharmacy oak bark with one glass of boiling water. Cover the broth and stand for about 20 minutes, strain. Rinse for about a week.
  • Tea brewed with rosehip berries, blackberry and currant leaves will help restore defenses.
  • Sea buckthorn oil or rosehip oil is a regenerating and cleansing agent.
  1. Solutions:
  • With soda. To prepare the bath solution, take one teaspoon of soda and dissolve it in a half-liter jar of boiled water. Heat the liquid to body temperature, rinse the genitals twice a day, and also after urination.
  • With "potassium permanganate". First, prepare the "mother" solution. Potassium permanganate is dissolved in a small jar of water, so that the solution is almost black. We need this in order to dissolve almost all the crystals, otherwise there could be a burn. Then, in another dish, add the resulting dark solution a little to boiled water (one liter), dilute everything thoroughly to a light pink hue. The tool will help disinfect and dry wet skin and mucous membranes.
  1. Plants:
  • Garlic. An excellent antioxidant, antiseptic and immunomodulator that helps get rid of thrush. Often eat it as an independent product or as a seasoning for dishes.
  • Plantain. The leaves are washed with hot water and applied to the affected area. One “but” - use only fresh leaves!
  • Aloe. The plant must be at least 3 years old. Home flower is not watered for 8-10 days. Cut the lower leaves of the plant and stand them overnight in the refrigerator. Then thorns are cut from the leaflet and it is cut lengthwise, forming two thin strips resembling bandages. They alternately wrap the head of the penis, so that the cut touches all the affected areas of the skin. Fix aloe with a bandage. Manipulation is repeated twice a day until complete recovery.

General recommendations for a speedy recovery

An important role in the treatment is played by the patient's immunity state. Therefore, it’s good to support him in every possible way. In this regard, herbs have proven themselves well: pink radiola, white iris, Eleutherococcus, ginseng, white mistletoe, Chinese magnolia vine.

Attention! The use of herbs, as well as dosage forms, is possible only after consultation with a doctor.

To restore the microflora, the preferred drugs are: Lactobacterin, Linex, Bifidumbacterin.

Be sure to include “bio” and “bifido” products in your diet. And besides - low-fat varieties of meat, poultry and fish, eggs, live fermented milk products, vegetables, unsweetened fruits, cereals, eggs. Better if they are baked, boiled or stewed.

Do not lean on the “snacks” that provoke a suitable environment for the propagation of fungi:

  • beer, wine, kvass,
  • smoked meats
  • fried and greasy
  • pepper,
  • pickles and pickles,
  • кетчупы, майонез и соевый соус (все, что содержит уксус),
  • сладкие фрукты и соки,
  • сахар или мед,
  • мучное и десерты.
