Thrush is an infection of your genitals caused by yeast. It's not as common in men as women. These links explain more about how people get it and what the symptoms are:

If you're having any skin rash/itching of your genitals or unusual discharge from your penis, the best thing is to have an examination with your doctor. They can easily check for thrush and other infections.
