Yeasts are unicellular fungi, specifically eukaryotic microorganisms that reproduce asexually through mitosis (in layman’s terms, dividing of the nucleus). It is done through an asymmetric division process known as budding (the development of new organism from a bud or outgrowth caused by the cell division at a particular site).
Lactobacillus acidophilus, the most common bacteria, control the yeast and other organisms. And though it is normally the women who get yeast infections (since a vagina normally has many bacteria and just a few yeast cells), yeast infection in male urinary tract can also occur by having unprotected sex with an infected woman.
One can increase the risk of yeast infection when taking antibiotics for a long time. Diabetes, HIV, and/or a weakened immune system can also attract more yeast infections.

Symptoms of Yeast Infection in Male Urinary Tract

If you might be wondering if you have contracted or are experiencing a yeast infection, watch out for the following warning signs:
• Itching
• Rashes
• A burning sensation at the tip of the penis

How To Cure Male Yeast Infection Quickly

1. Over-the-counter antifungal medications

Yeast infections can easily be treated with an antifungal ointments or cream that you can purchase over the counter. You will have to apply the ointment or cream directly onto the affected area every day for a couple of days to a week.
Do not expect that you can get rid of male yeast infection in one day. There was one report of an infected male who mixed vinegar with the antifungal cream, and the yeast infection was gone in a day. But of course, that was only hearsay — that method has not really been proven and tested.
The problem with these ointments and creams though is that they are only focused on getting rid of the symptoms, but not the cause of the infection.

2. Home remedies

There are a number of home remedies for male yeast infection that you can try. Eating cranberries are very helpful since the flavonoids present in them could contribute to the strengthening of your immune system.
Another is taking probiotics, which contain live friendly bacteria. One example of this is yogurt. This has lactobacillus acidophilus which is good for controlling yeast, as mentioned previously. Raw garlic and coconut oil also have natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. You can add them to your food, or apply them directly onto the infected area.
And as mentioned earlier, vinegar, specifically raw apple cider, can help too. It stops the growth of candida or yeast.

3. A healthy lifestyle

One of the simplest ways on how to cure male yeast infection quickly is by reducing stress levels, since stress can impair your immune system. You can do regular exercises, get enough sleep, and have a healthy and nutritious diet. It is advisable to avoid or lessen your intake of foods that are high in sugar, processed food, mono-sodium glutamate (MSG), coffee, products containing yeast, etc.
If all these suggestions still do not cure the yeast infection in male urinary tract, it is best to consult your doctor.
