There’s a number of efficient treatments for thrush in men that will provide you fast relief, including both prescription creams and capsules.

Fluconazole capsule 150mg is usually prescribed , the capsule is swallowed whole. It is a single dose treatment that normally clears up cases of thrush completely in around 5 days.

Penile thrush (normally known as male thrush) is caused by the same fungus, Candida Albicans, as vaginal thrush. Similarly to vaginal thrush, the Candida yeast lives normally on the genitals and only causes penile thrush when the normal balance of microbes is upset. This can be due to taking antibiotics, not drying your penis properly, using perfumed soaps or shower gels, or having a weakened immune system.
The main symptoms of thrush in men include:

  • Red, inflamed or swollen skin around the head of the penis.
  • Itching, irritation or soreness around the head of the penis.
  • Thick, lumpy discharge under the foreskin.
  • An unpleasant odour.
  • Difficulty pulling back the foreskin.
  • Pain when passing urine or during sex.

Thrush is not a sexually transmitted infection (STI) but it can be triggered by sexual activity. Keeping your genitals clean and dry as well as wearing cotton underwear can help prevent thrush, however, to effectively treat the fungus an anti-fungal medication should be taken.
