Avatar_n_tn I took an std test for chlamydia and gonnorea and they both came back negative but the doctor gave diflucan thinking it might be a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection. It worked for about a week and then the burning came back. The doctor then gave me doxycycline( 10 days 2 pills easch day) and said that this should work. It works a little but he said it might take a week and its been six days. I have a couple of questions. 1.
Avatar_n_tn it's not necessarily yeast, it could be Erythrasma (bacteria) Antibiotics do foster yeast infections, it's called Antibiotic candidiasis (also known as "Iatrogenic candidiasis") is a Candidal infection caused by antibiotic use.[1]:311 Antibiotic candidiasis can result from overuse or over-prescription of broad-spectrum antibiotics[2] (such as oxytetracycline commonly used for the control of acne).
Avatar_n_tn There is no reason for you to suppose you are infected or have any problem related to her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection. There is no such thing as BV in men, thus no diagnosis for it in men. in women, the diagnosis is based on a combination of clinical findings and microscopical tests; there is no single test for it. I already told you above that doxycycline would have cleared up chlamydia (for sure) and gonorrhea (probably) if that were your partner's underlying problem.
Avatar_n_tn I have been through the unbelievable embarasment with filling prescriptions, because unfournutley for men there is no prescription yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection medicine specificly for me. I have had to take difilucin 3 different times and it didn't work and everytime I had to pick this up I have eithier had to convince them that it is ok for me to take and maybe make a joke like " last time I checked I didn't have a vagina.
Avatar_n_tn After some reading I am supposing this is Balainitis caused some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection. I went to a Urologist where I am currently working. After looking but without testing for STD´s he claimed I did not have an infection. Unfortunately, I was applying an anti-bacterial cream to keep the Balanitis down, with the cream symptoms are barely visible. My wife of all this and we will test when we get back at home in September. He did an ecography on penis, testicles and prostata and diagnosed prostatitis.
Avatar_m_tn I went to the STD clinic together with my girlfriend and we got checked for Gono, Chlam, Syph and HIV. Our test came back negative. Later in the year my gilrfriend got checked out at the clinic for Gon Chla, Syph, and everything was negative then we stopped using condoms a few times . She was at the end of her period and she told me she still had a little spotting. We had unprotected sex and the next day I felt a little tingle but nothing really.
Avatar_n_tn ), but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection still present. Had rashes 3 weeks into taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e</span>, so its not treating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection (few courses of sex probably irritated it). 1 week later took diflucan - No results with diflucan, rules out yeast infection? Not sure if this ties, week or so prior to symptoms girlfriend did have a throat infection. Had unprotected sex and oral sex where she needed antibiotics to cure it – could this have passed anything on to the penis?
Avatar_n_tn When I returned to the states I developed a mild yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection after intercourse—this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection just keeps coming back. Now my boyfriend has prostatitis—likely linked to the yeast. He informed me that he ex-wife used to get yeast infections all the time. I never had a yeast problem before, despite ejaculatory sex and b.c. pills with my ex-fiancé. Could my new boyfriend have been carrying yeast from his ex and passing to me? Or is his prostatitis all my fault? P.S.
Avatar_n_tn They called and said I had a VERY bad yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection. This time I started feeling similar to the last time. By day 3 I was swollen and red again with mild itching and a white/clear stretchy discharge. I have been with a new partner since Nov. 2005 and these problems have started since then. I seem to be irritated down there almost always after we have sex. Do you think maybe it's his body chemistry that isn't mixing well with my "inside"?
Avatar_f_tn Have you looked into it being a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection? Yeast infections in men can mimic some of the symptoms of herpes, particularly the blotches on the tip of your penis. I was put on fluconazole, and the redness started to fade. Still there, so now I'm trying monistat.
Avatar_n_tn is often used in the UK to mean yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection in general, whereas on this side of the Atlantic we tend to use thrush to mean oral infection only. It wasn't always that way; the change in the US seems to have evolved in connection with awareness of oral yeast as a possible indicator of AIDS. (There is nothing in your situation that raises HIV/AIDS concerns.) Whether yeast causes urethritis in men also is subject to differences of opinion on each side of the Atlantic.
Avatar_m_tn She may have had a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection, though so mild she didn't know. Men are susceptible to yeast infections too. It is not an std so do not worry. It is actually a normal though annoying infection that can occur. Taking antibiotics would make it worse as they kill the natural bacteria that balance with the yeast in our bodies. Talk to your doctor about fungal infection...see what they say. Why you were prescribed doxy for a rash and not other symptoms is beyond me.
Avatar_m_tn Gardnerella vaginitis is a common vaginal bacterial infection that affects three out of four women at least once in their lives and usually accompanies either a yeast, trichomonas or urinary tract <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection. Men can be infected through sexual intercourse and can also transmit to additional partners.

Avatar_n_tn Hello, I'm a 27 year old female living in the UK and recently had symptoms of a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection. I was tested and my results came back positive for the yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection and I was treated with fluconazole. symptoms went away after four days. However,the diagnosis came back positive also for ureaplasma (negative for BV and trich) for which the doctor explained to me was an STD and prescribed me for doxy twice daily for 7 days.
Avatar_n_tn (1) Does my case sound like a herpes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection to you? (2) could the discharge be related to my yeast? (5) what, besides herpes, could this discharge be? Thank you so much for your help.
Avatar_n_tn There might be a slim possibility of a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection, but that's almost never a problem in men, even though antibiotics sometimes trigger yeast symptoms in women. You have not yet been treated for trichomonas, which could cause urethritis--but not blood in the urine. Except for the slim possibility of trichomonas, which you should discuss with your health care provider, you can be sure no STD is causing whatever symptoms you have now.
Avatar_m_tn You might find one that has miconazole in it, as that kills yeast. I wouldn't be surprised if you had a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection after all those antibiotics.
Avatar_m_tn would all these antibiotics case male yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection or uti? I'm still getting uretha and bladder discomfort? No discharge and no pain while urinating only before and after urination?
Avatar_m_tn in our clinic, given your recurrent symptoms, you would have been treated with the alternate medication recommended for chlamydial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e</span>) plus metronidazole, not just metronidazole alone because of the (unproven) possibility that you might have failed your recent treatment. Several additional thoughts arise however. First, your testing sounds unusual.
Avatar_n_tn Sounds most like a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection, which sometimes occurs under the foreskin of uncircumcised men; many women normally carry yeasts in the vagina, so it's not an STD in the usual sense--i.e., unrelated to number of partners, new parterships, etc. But herpes also is possible.
Avatar_f_tn I went to the doctor the very next day, Monday, and I got a urine test for urinary tract <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection and also got swab for vaginal yeast infection. As of Monday I was not experiencing any pain throughout my body and started the antibiotics that the doctor prescribed for me for the UTI. Today, Thursday, the urine test came out negative for bacteria and my doctor told me to it is safe to stop the antibiotics.
Avatar_f_tn (3) I have protected vaginal sex and protected oral sex, fingering with a social sex worker . I taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doxycycl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e</span> 1 month ago but I can't remember whether I taken dairy product., I so I'm currently taking another doses of doxycycline again then will do the test. I've HIV negative at week 7, chlamydia positive at week 11. Others are all negative at week 11. 2nd month my penile start to have a few red spots, I use steroid cream and it's gone, then it came back.
Avatar_m_tn How about yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection? Couldn't herpes be down in the urethra but not showing outside? I guess I would have seen something after this many days?
Avatar_m_tn Its been so long i was going to suggest a fungus or yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection which is common. Men can contract these from women believe it or not. If the irritation is external to your penis then has to be connected with the manual irritation or yeast.
Avatar_f_tn Started with sore throat diarhea low fevers never over 100 white tongue that still keeps coming back. Yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection, Bacterial Vaginosis 2 times in May. Then my hair keeps thinning out in the front real bad. Now I have begun to notice that I have something like little round scar like spots showing up one on my knee one in my armpit and a few just spread out on my body in various places. There is a few other things i just cant think of right now Does this sound familiar to anything??
Avatar_m_tn Finally use of antibiotics (you have taken several) can also predispose to yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection. While there are a few other processes which can mimic yeast infections (syphils/herpes) in your situation, they are most unlikely. My advice however is that it would be in your best interest to have an experienced clinician take a look. If it is a yeast infection this is easily treated. I hope this comment is helpful.
Avatar_n_tn I'm also a little skeptical about thrush (yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection) of your oral symptoms. Most white tongues or white patches in the mouth are not thrush. That said, doxycycline can cause yeast overgrowth, so this may be a possibility. Bottom line: Continue to work with your own doctor or clinic about your symptoms, potential causes, etc. And do speak with your doctor about the UTI business and urological evaluation. But nothing in any of this is suspicious for an STD.
Avatar_m_tn I had none. Then the skin started to peel around the head of the penis. I then took medicine for a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection, it did not work. The skin has stopped peeling, but there is like a swollen tube around the head of the penis and it hurts. A lot. And it is very painful to masturbate. I have seen 2 doctors, one of which was a urologist and not one of them has any idea what it is. I am going to see another urologist, but I was wondering if any of you guys had any idea what this is.
Avatar_n_tn ) Itchy anus is not an STD symptom, especially in heterosexual men. (But it can result from a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection, which can follow multiple antibiotics like you have had.) Ceftriaxone (trade name Rocephin) is the drug of choice against gonorrhea but doesn't treat chlamydia. But doxy is 100% reliable against chlamydia. As far as your new gf is concerned, after the antibiotics you have had, you can be sure you have no continuing chlamydia or gonorrhea.
