Caption: Candidal balanitis, the infection of the penis with the yeast-like fungus Candida albicans. The usually superficial infection may occur in moist areas of the body, such as the skin folds, mouth, respiratory tract and genitals; that of the mouth and vagina is popularly known as thrush. The infection may rarely spread throughout the body. The condition may develop in patients receiving broad-spectrum antibiotics. Candidiasis of the vagina & penis may be transmitted through sexual contact & re-infection is likely unless both partners are treated simultaneously. Treatment is with antibiotics such as nystatin or clotrimazole.
