Can a man get a yeast infection from his sexual partner?

Most experts do not consider yeast infection to be a sexually-transmitted disease, but cases of irritation and itching of the penis in men have been reported after sexual contact with a woman with a yeast infection, so it is possible for an infected woman to spread the infection to her male sex partner. Treatment of male sexual partners is not considered necessary unless the man develops symptoms.

I've had a fungal infection around the scrotum for many years due to diabetes and tried many creams which never worked. This is when I was advised by a pharmacist to try Balance Activ BV. It comes in 7 tubes designed for females. One tube lasted me 2 to 3 days, just rub around area, after 3 days it was gone. But you must keep using as it will come back. Hope this helps, it helped me.

Coconut oil is the best treatment for the yeast infection. It make your yeast infection vanish immediately. Pour some oil on the private area and massage gently and then pour some more oil and you will be able to take the yeast away from your private area without pain.
