A yeast infection is the most common type of infection that both men and women may experience. It can appear almost anywhere on the skin, especially those parts that are always warm and moist. Men suffer from yeast infections on their penis because of the wet area on their groin, while women have it in their vagina. In fact, people can even have yeast infections on their butt crack.
Infection of the butt crack
If you have an infection on your butt crack, you will experience discomfort as it can be very painful. Of course, it would be embarrassing too. The common symptoms of this condition are burning, itching, as well as pain and bleeding when having bowel movements.
The infection may start in your vagina or penis, and it may spread to your anal region. Again, this is because the anus provides the bacteria a warm and moist environment wherein they can rapidly multiply. It is highly recommended that you avoid scratching the skin surrounding this area because once the skin starts to peel, it may lead to more severe infections.
What are the treatments?
The treatment for yeast infections in the genital area can also be utilized to treat the same infection on your butt crack.
Prescription and over-the-counter drugs
There are several prescription and over-the-counter drugs that you can use to reduce the discomfort that is caused by Candida Albicans in the body. However, it is worth knowing that this does not actually treat the infection. Such drugs can only provide temporary relief, but the infection may still recur, and it can be worse than the last time.
Some of the home remedies that you can utilize to treat an infection of the butt crack include Cranberries, Garlic, Vinegar, Yogurt, Tea Tree Oil, Oregano Oil, Olive Leaf, and much more. You can also take advantage of anti-Candida diets. You should start eating non-starchy vegetables which can starve the bacteria of the sugar that feeds it.
Here are some of the foods that you should include in your anti-Candida diet:
- Vegetables like Broccoli, Asparagus, Artichokes, Eggplant, raw Garlic, Brussels, Cabbage, and Celery.
- Live yogurt cultures
- Beef, chicken, and eggs
- Almonds, Walnuts, Sunflower seeds, and Hazelnuts
Practice proper hygiene
Observing good hygiene is also an excellent way to prevent the growth of bacteria in your anal region. Make sure that you wash your private parts thoroughly. You can also utilize anal bleaching creams to lighten the skin color in your anus. READ MORE about this whitening procedure.
