Some men amaze me with how stupid they can be. My father-in-law is one of those guys. He's forever got some ailment or other, but every so often he'll find the opportunity to regale me with a cock issue. Now, he saw my buddy's play - I know that for a fact. So, why in the world would he allow a yeast infection to get so bad that he's ruptured capillaries in the shaft of his cock from scratching? He ended up with a bruised cock. Then, allowed it to go further until he got the lovely white pustules on the head. (I will spare you the "lovely" photos of an infected cock.) Guys, guys, guys...
When will it sink in that we get one set of genitals, and it must be cared for properly?
Yes, men can and do contract genital yeast infections. More intact men suffer than those who've been cut. But, penile yeast infections can be avoided by proper hygiene. For cryin' out loud! wash it! Pull back the foreskin and wash the head.
After a shower, use a blow dryer to fully dry the entire package. Yeast infections love nothing more than a warm, moist environment.
After sex, skin back the hood and clean off your cock. That pre- and that ejaculate can and does accumulate in there. It's not rocket science.
And, please! please! please! all you intact dudes...stop being so lazy. This is disgusting:
You've already got it in your hand, how tough is it to use that thumb and forefinger to slide the foreskin down a little bit when you piss?
And make sure you've cleared the urethra. Using said thumb and forefinger to reach up under your nuts and - using a bit of pressure - slide along the the perineum, then along the shaft to push the urine out. And then shake those last drops off the tip before you allow the foreskin to slip back into place.
If you do end up with a yeast infection, don't wait until you're in agony. There are remedies. Over-the-counter remedies. Lotriman and Monistat are the two most common and sold everywhere.
If you can't find it, ask! It's as simple as saying, "I need something for Jock Itch." If that doesn't work, hightail it to your doctor - he can get you prescription strength creams. Your cock will thank you.
Most likely, you're feeling good.
