You can't win, nor dodge the shell with your name on it.

Went on holiday with the missus and we had holiday sex! A most unexpected event and unprotected. I now have thrush! All those horror tales about catching stuff from escorts eh?

Anyone know any good male thrush products? Plus how long before a professional lady will welcome me, even with a condom? Is there a period before I don't pass it on?

Canasten oral, and cream for the external itch is fine for males, and probably what you will get from the doctor.

As for how long, thrush usually clears within a week, with the correct anti-fungals.

However as for passing it on... thrush once you have had it, like herpes stays with you for life.

However on the UPSIDE, the only time you can pass it on is when you have symptoms, so while it's dormant it's ok.

However when you have a flair, it's inadvisable to do anything uncovered.

Also if you come in contact with someone who has it either orally or vaginally, you can catch it. (like oral without, if the girl has a flair.)

You can buy some good anti-fungla washes from the chemist, so ask them.

Thrush is not an STD or STI, it's an imbalance in the natural levels of the bacterial in the vagina/penis/mouth etc, and thrives in warm damp places, so vagina's mouths, and under foreskins.

Hope this helps.

quick trip to the local GUM clinic would seem to be in order.

BTW have you told Mrs Lessingham?

Thanks for the advice. I told Mrs L and she denies any involvement and promptly gave me a set of towels for washing that must not touch her. She claims it is one of those coincidence thingies. Off to Boots for me this morning then.

I will wait until it is cleared up plus a week before contemplating a booking as I can imagine most escorts will take one sniff, one look and send me packing

I had a girlfriend 15 years who got thrush and immediately blamed me. She didn't know I punted, though I'd stopped when I was seeing her. But she did know I was in several relationships before her. Anyway she went to see her GP who told her that it was most unlikely it was sexually transmitted so my names was off the suspect list.

If it were me i would get it checked at the GUM like Paul advised, but i hope it gets sorted quickly. :)

I suffer from this from time to time, best drop by your GP for a check-up as it can be an indication of the onset of Diabetes (spellin?)thats what I was told and tested for at the GUM clinic many years ago. Not only do I get Thrush (Candida)the clinic told me I also get an alergic reaction to it, WARNING do not self diagnose these symtoms on the internet or you will end up a nervous wreck!

Its the same family as Atheletes foot so Anti-fungul products soon clear it up. A good tip is before applying any cream first wash the area with a solution of salt water (just warm) and dry really well then apply cream, if you can do this on every application, not just top it up during the day it really speeds up the healing.

OMG Thrush is not a disease, so it is not something that will stay with you for life..beware scaremongering.

Thrush occur's in women because yeast that naturally occur's in us sometime's goes into over-drive, it is not an sti as such, more an imbalance in the same way that BV is an imbalance of good V bad bacteria. It can be caused by diet, illness/being run down, anti-biotics are a major cause, wearing tight jean's or even tights on a hot day apparently, anything that can cause the atmosphere of your fanny to change drastically can bring it on.

Some people are mor suseptable at certain time's in their life but it is not something that you can never be fully cured of..it is NOTHING like herpe's!

Yes Caneston cream will work on the outside to cool the itching flame's but it is not recommended for use inside which is where the yeast infection has nestled in your willy, you need to get down to the doc's and yes, probably get given a caneston tablet to take, better to check first though than take advice on here (although Jkay's sounds the best tbh)

P.s...its not life threatening either just flamin annoying.x

Weather Mrs Lessingham likes it or not Doctors will require you both to be treated at the same time.x

What a stupid thing to say!! Please check your facts before posting stuff like this!

Thrush is not like Herpes - it may have some similar symptoms, but thrush is very common and can (and does) occur without sexual contact.

LOL, Lessingham, you don't need to go the GUM. Thrush is not an STI. It's usually caused by friction (i.e. lots of lovely sex :D ) and holidays make one especially susceptible due to any dampness (from swimming) and hot weather.

Canestan will clear it up. You can pick some up from the pharmacist.

Best not to have any more unprotected sex until it clears up, and that includes OWO.

Say it either isnt thrush or he has unfortunately got something else as well, i would certainly go to the GUM to be certain if it were me.

I agree, highly irresponsible.

Thrush though despite having the ability to cause extreme itching does not have the same symptoms as herpes, herpes outbreaks are tiny sore blisters, well I say sore, I have read that they are in fact extremely painful. You are more likely to get pain from thrush through constant itching or rubbing...hence the cooling canneston cream.

Totally correct, no sexual contact at all is required...just when you thought you were safe in your own knickers :(

Candida is naturally occuring in the body in several places and it is normally balanced by good bacteria so it stays on a low level and causes no problems.

When the delicate bacteria / Candida balance is disturbed though, there is a risk of developing a yeast infection, thrush. The most common yeast infection is the vaginal thrush but male thrush, or penile yeast infection can also occur and is not uncommon.

Men without foreskin are less likely to be affected because of the lack of humidity and moisture available for the Candida to grow.

Thrush in males can be sexually transmitted if you have intercourse with someone with a yeast infection but normally only if your own balance has deteriorated for some reason so you become receptive. Male thrush can also develop for other reasons, the causes of yeast infection that always apply like long cures of antibiotics, low immune defense etc.

Male thrush symptoms

You may notice "spots" on the head of your penis which later grows to small lumps or craters if not treated with thrush cream

The penis head becomes very itchy

There may be penile discharge

Discomfort or light pain when urinating

Smegma may appear (looks like cottage cheese, smells yeasty)

Male yeast infections do not always have symptoms and can just go away again but as a precaution, if your partner has a candida infection it is wise to treat yourself as well. Even if your infection is small and causes no problems, it can still re-infect your partner after thrush treatment.

Treatment of male thrush

Check out with your doctor first that your symptoms really are male thrush and nothing else - as several STD's could have similar symptoms, at least initially.

Male Candida is treated with anti fungal cream, applied twice daily for approximately 1-2 weeks. By then the symptoms should have disappeared. Notice that you should keep treating your penis for a 5-6 days after the symptoms have gone away, or there is is a certain risk that the yeast infection will come back.

Male thrush cream brands are Clotrimazole, Canesten, Pevaryl etc. It is the same cream that is used by women so you can share the cream with your partner (who should use both cream and a suppository).

If you are somewhere where you cannot get hold of the thrush cream - then what? Here are a few tricks for treating thrush without thrush cream:

Yogurt. Apply as you would the cream, but a few more times a day. Make sure you get natural yogurt with as few additives as possible. But even a raspberry yogurt is better than none.

Athletes foot cream. It is usually the same cream, just rebranded. Check that the active ingredient is clotrimazole with a strength of 1-2%.

While you are under treatment for male thrush, you should avoid sex if possible or at least use a condom. Use condom even a while after the treatment as you will be more sensitive to re-infection and other infections for a shorter period.

Preventing male thrush

Same rules as for thrush in women apply to the diet - avoid anything with yeast, stay on low carbohydrate food, avoid sugar.

Other rules are also general for both thrush in men and women - use natural material underwear (cotton) etc.

Of course it couldn't could it?

Invasive candidiasis is thrush which has infected the bloodstream, and can be life threatening. But hey ho, it's just flamin annoying.

Oh and BTW, you don't have to have the lower, part to get invasive candidiasis, just that the risk is higher if you have any of the below.

But I know nothing about this, infection at all. :rolleyes:

Invasive candidiasis

If you have a weakened immune system there is a risk that the candida fungus will spread into your blood. The infection can then quickly spread throughout your body affecting many of your organs. This type of infection is known as invasive candidiasis.

Known risk factors for invasive candidiasis include:

having HIV

having type 1 or type 2 diabetes

taking immunosuppressants – a type of medication that is used to stop the body rejecting newly donated organs

undergoing high-dose chemotherapy or radiotherapy

having a central venous catheter (CVC) – a tube that is directly implanted into your chest and used to administer medication; they are often used in order to avoid repeated painful injections during a long-term course of medication

having dialysis – a type of treatment where a machine is used to replicate the functions of the kidney and is commonly used to treat kidney failure

The symptoms of invasive candidiasis can be wide ranging, depending on what part of the body is affected by infection. However, initial symptoms of infection can include:

a high temperature (fever) of or above 38ºC (101.4ºF)

shivering

nausea

headache

Get medical help immediately if you have thrush and any of the risk factors listed above, and you develop any of the above symptoms over a short period of time.

Invasive candidiasis is a medical emergency that requires immediate admission to an intensive care unit (ICU). In an ICU, the functions of the body can be supported while the underlying infection is treated with injections of anti-fungal medications.

If you are thought to be particularly vulnerable to invasive candidiasis – for example, you have diabetes and you are on dialysis, your GP may recommend that you are admitted to hospital as a precaution if you develop a thrush infection.

Taking notes like mad here. I washed the foreskin and spent most of last night with it hanging out of my trousers to allow fresh air around (Well that's my story officer and I'm sticking to it) I bought Caneston at Boots and smearing it all over the place. If it clears it is well, if not it is to the docs for medical opinions.

Mrs L has reluctantly agreed to use the stuff too "just in case"

The swimming pool also usually contains something to kill bacteria (do they still use chlorine?), which knocks out a lot of the natural flora of the vagina and allows the yeast to reproduce. I'm not sure if the same happens to men, but it may well have happened to your wife and she just didn't get much symptom-wise or it cleared up very quickly (it does resolve itself in most people naturally, just takes longer without treatment.)

Most swimming pools use ozone to treat the water now, which also means none of that nasty, dangerous chlorine gas hanging around. Regards the above comment, I was with the understanding that once you've had thrush, you may be susceptible to it in the future - very much like athletes foot is too (I don't meant athletes foot is thrush, I meant in the way you may develop it again). This isn't however in the same way a virus might reoccur though, just that you may have a tendency or sensitivity in the future.

Could be completely wrong though.

re autums comment about using yogurt. I thik she has omitted about the need to use live yog. many of them are pasteurised so the enzymes are killed and its the enzymes that do the bizzo, mrs cp swears by yeo valley! Yakult is another possibility.

and her point about antibiotice is well made. they really fuck your bodies biological balance. when i am on them i mainline live yog and yakult.
