A lot of men are infected with yeast bacteria without realizing it. For means, these men may go around thinking that they are healthy and they are not harboring any harmful bacteria in their bodies. Unfortunately, as the number of yeast bacteria increase in the body, one may start to feel the effects of chronic male yeast infection. Although signs and symptoms of chronic male yeast infection may not be so severe in most men, it can be downright irritating and embarrassing to most.
Note that chronic male yeast infection may cause severe itch around the reproductive areas of the body and it is often difficult for someone who is suffering from chronic male yeast infection not to scratch these places in public. Moreover, oral yeast infection can cause bad breath in most people. Just think how uncomfortable and embarrassing that situation would be.
How Does One Get Chronic Male Yeast Infection?
There are many ways of contracting chronic male yeast infection. One of the most common causes of chronic male yeast infection is the indiscriminate use of antibiotics. If you are one of those people who have consumed a good deal of antibiotics while you were young, your risk of contracting chronic male yeast infection is quite high.
Why? Studies show that broad spectrum antibiotics kill wide range of bacteria in the body including the good one. We all know that our body needs good bacteria to fight infection and once the good bacteria in our body are depleted; we could get into some serious trouble.
Since antibiotics kill most of the good bacteria in our body, we are often left defenseless against yeast infection. When our immune system is already compromised may not be able to withstand the onslaught of yeast bacteria and we get sick. That is not really a pretty picture isn’t it?
Aside from antibiotics, alcohol and bear also encourage the overgrowth of yeast bacteria. Alcohol and beer cause imbalance in the digestive system which may lead to the overgrowth of yeast bacteria. When this happens, a person may suffer from chronic male yeast infection.
Once a person is already infected with chronic male yeast infection, eating certain types of food like peanut butter, cord products and wheat may already trigger some flare ups which can be quite uncomfortable. It is therefore very important for people who have been diagnosed with chronic male yeast infection to avoid eating food that may trigger flare ups.
