On any pharmacy or superstore shelves, a man can locate products which indicate they are for use by women for yeast infections. Some of these products are in suppository form or gel capsules meant to dissolve inside the vagina. While these products contain the same medication the male needs, they are not in the right form for use on the male sex organs.
Along side these products will be several choices of creams or ointments which are packaged with a plunger device for a woman to insert the cream into the vagina. These are the products a man needs for treating his penile yeast infection.
One type of product that is effective for male yeast infection is a cream which contains miconazole nitrate. Another effective male yeast infection cream is one that contains clotrimazole. These medications are found in any number of over the counter creams which a male can use to treat a yeast infection.
To effectively use the male yeast infection cream, simple ignore the instruction which indicate the cream must be inserted into the vagina. Instead, apply the cream to the penis and effective areas of the genital region.
The instruction will, however, indicate how many applications must be used to treat the infection. Use the cream for male yeast infection treatment for the length of time recommended.
