Candida Treatment for Men in New York, NY
Yeast Overgrowth – the Overlooked Diagnosis for Men
Yes, men can also suffer from chronic yeast overgrowth – also known as candida.
Both men and women can get a yeast infection, also known as candida or thrush. While male yeast infections are a less common occurrence, it is important to know the warning signs and symptoms to get proper treatment. Candida itself is a harmless yeast that lives on the body and skin of every person. At times, an overgrowth of this yeast can lead to a growth of fungus, causing a variety of symptoms both painful and uncomfortable.
Many men who suffer from candida seek treatment from other medical specialists who are unable to accurately diagnosis that they suffer from yeast overgrowth. If you suffer from the symptoms below we recommend seeking treatment first from holistic doctors who specialize in candida yeast overgrowth like Dr. Dean Mitchell.
