While it is certainly more common to find yeast overgrowth in women due to their physiology, men do also have this problem both locally as well as systemically. The symptoms in men sometimes vary somewhat from women. The most common symptoms for men include jock itch, athlete’s food, toenail fungus, as well as the shared symptoms of digestive disorders, and fatigue.
Men often go undiagnosed because their symptoms are much less aggressive in most cases. Further, men are often under the impression that a yeast infection is a “woman’s” issue. Let’s look at the main reasons why people develop a systemic yeast overgrowth. This will show you that men are not immune to this problem.
The main causes for systemic candida overgrowth are antibiotic abuse, even from many years ago, Steroid drugs, birth control meds, and sexual transmission. Certainly 3 out of those 4 also apply to men.
Men can often be carriers of yeast without having overt symptoms. This can result in him sexually transmitting the yeast to his partners without even knowing it. Many women complain of vaginal yeast infections after intercourse and this likely is contributing to this problem. It is ALWAYS a good idea for both partners to use the Liquid Daily Oxy Aloe Flush Program if a yeast problem is identified as it is highly likely that both partners are infected regardless of the level of symptoms present.
