What would it feel like? How do you know that you have it? How would you treat it?

Yes, It can either be in the mouth (oral thrush) or at the end of the penis, under the foreskin.

Got one in my armpits. Some cream and time fixed it up. I got a pretty nasty rash in my armpits while I was getting cooked in the august sun building fences. The doctor said it was a yeast infection. Apparently it isn’t just a genitalia thing.

Oh, to answer you actual question. It was so bad that that I camped overnight at Whitebird so I could be seen by a doctor. It was really painful.

Live yogurt is good for getting rid of a yeast infection.

They can get both yeast and bacterial infections and they can spread them.

I think I heard of the yogurt thing before @downtide.

Yes they certainly can and if other home remedies aren’t working I would go to your doctor and they can prescribe Diflucan for you and it will get rid of it.

Yes. There is burning pain when urinating. See your doctor.

Absolutely, and this is why if you’re a female and have a yeast infection, you should absolutely not have sex until it’s completely resolved. He can give the yeast back to the woman and then the infection will happen again.
