THRUSH   You may associate thrush with women mainly as it is more commonly heard of, but men can get thrush too. It is simply a yeast infection and does not cause many problems. The symptoms include:

Irritation around the top of the penis which could include a burning sensation and/ or red patches of skin Difficulty in pulling back the foreskin A white coating under the foreskin

This is not a sexually transmitted infection generally and is just caused by an excess of the yeast, which lives on the body anyway but just rapidly multiplies at time. The reason it is classified as an STI is because the yeast can be passed on or the thrush can be irritated by sexual intercourse.

Thrush is more common if you are uncircumcised and if so you should make sure you regularly wash under your foreskin, this is advisable anyway of course.

If you think you have thrush it can be diagnosed by either a urine test or a swab taken from under the foreskin. You will be given a cream to threat it and possibly tablets. These tablets are also available over the counter.

It is also possible to have thrush in your mouth which is usually signalled by a white coating on the tongue, if you are worried go and see your GP about this as it will need to be diagnosed and treated. .
