Is Oral Thrush Caused By Me Giving Oral Sex While I Have A Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath with a frequentlyasked question regarding yeast infections. I'm not sure how to answer this one. Is oral thrush caused by giving me oral sexwhile I have the yeast infection? I have certainly seen people with yeast infectionsengaging in oral sex passing Candida from one person to another. This is definitelypossible, so you need to take particular care as a female if you have vaginal thrush andyou're engaging in oral sex with your partner that you don't transmit or move the Candidainfection. It can certainly occur, I've seen this occur whether it's anal sex or oral sexor whatever sex, you can move Candida around
this way, so good hygiene needs to be understoodand precautions need to be taken. A key area I often find is males who are uncircumcisedcan much more easily develop a yeast infection there of the penis than males who are circumcised.You can understand this because the yeast will get underneath the skin and not all menare that good with hygiene, so it's certainly good to take precautions and to be very goodwith hygiene to stop what I call passing the parcel from one to another. This goes the same with sharing sex toys andthings like that, vibrators, whatever you want to use. You need to take proper precautionsand use good hygiene. Hydrogen peroxide can
be good to clean and so can water solubletea tree oil. These are all good ways to help clean and prevent a cross infection. So to answer your question, oral sex can certainlyhelp to move a yeast infection around from one person to another. Thank you.
