It doesn’t have to be. For most men the key is to understand why

Unfortunately for many men it’s not uncommon for them to
experience a male yeast infection and experience them over and
over again. Yeast bacteria gets into the penis and results in
itching, burning, pain during urination and possibly penile
discharge. Sometimes males can have this disorder without
experiencing any symptoms of any kind.

Any male, regardless of age or sexual activity can get this
disorder but it is more common is sexually active men and in men
who practice certain sexual behaviors. However a young child can
get a male yeast infection without having experienced sexual
contact of any kind.

Most frequently, men get yeast infections from having unprotected
sex with a female partner who already has an overgrowth of
vaginal yeast bacteria. This means that a yeast infection can be
a sexually transmitted disease (STD), yet unlike many STDs this
is not the only means of getting the infection.

When monogamous couples practice unprotected sexual intercourse,
if the female has a vaginal yeast infection, some of the bacteria
can get into the opening of the penis, permitting these bacteria
to multiply and resulting in an infection.

While the female may obtain treatment and get better after only a
few days, if the male partner is not also treated, it is quite
common that the very next sexual encounter will result in the
passing of the infection back to the woman. This can become a
cycle until both partners are properly treated.

A male child, especially a baby, can easily get a yeast infection
in the event that feces contact the penis. The bacteria present
in feces can get into the penis and result in an infection of
yeast. A boy can also get an outbreak because of being in damp
clothing which provides environment for yeast bacteria to
multiply into an infection.

In short, if you experience a male yeast infection that is likely
due to the transfer of the yeast infection from your partner back
to you, it is highly recommended for both parties to seek proper
treatment. Otherwise, the condition could last for a very long
