in the infection section of scarleteen the yeast infection article is for females. In my previous article a sexpert made the possibility that i may have yeast infection. I do not know the symptoms for male yeast infection. What are they? Can males get a yeast infection? Could my problem that was desribes in my other topic Rash/Raw Foreskin be a yeast infection.By reading the yeast infection article i may think it is because my symptoms and the female symptoms sound the same. so What are the male yeast infection symptoms? Can a male get a yeast infection?

yes, while it is more common in females, men can get yeast infections.

the symptoms are the same. raw, itchy genitals, perhaps accompanied by a strange smell from the region.

You can get over the counter treatments for yeast infections, but I would advise going to your doctor just to confirm diagnosis and get his/her advice, since we're not doctors here.
