Yeast infections in men can be treated using antifungal medications, according to Medical News Today. Men can either swallow a capsule containing 150 mg of fluconazole or apply an antifungal cream three times a day for three to seven days. Good hygiene can both prevent and help treat yeast infections.
Creams for treating yeast infections in men typically contain clotrimazole, econazole, ketoconazole or miconazole. Pharmacies sell these creams under various brand names. Another type of cream, called nystatin, is sometimes used to treat yeast infections in men. However, according to Medical News Today, nystatin is less effective than the other options. Men having yeast infection symptoms for the first time should see a doctor for diagnosis.
