How Do Men Get Rid of Yeast Infection Using Garlic

Garlic for yeast infection in men

Although many men might think that yeast infections only affect women, they’re wrong – but thankfully there are several great home remedies for yeast infections that can clear up this irritating and at times painful affliction. Men can get yeast infections in several places, as the candida fungus (which causes yeast infections) thrives in the warm, moist environments that can occur in various parts of the body and can cause yeast infections in the mouth and throat (known as ‘oral thrush’), on the feet (more commonly referred to as ‘athlete’s foot’), and even on the penis (though this is more likely to occur in uncircumcised men).

This article will give you some great information on how to use garlic for athlete’s foot and penile yeast infections, and will also explain why using natural treatment for yeast infections is such a great choice – so continue reading to find out more!

Garlic Cooking Recipe for Male Yeast Infection Treatment

There are several different ways you can use garlic for curing yeast infections whether it is for athlete’s foot or a penile yeast infection, from daily ingestion to topical application – so you are guaranteed to find a method that works for you! One of the easiest ways to utilize a garlic cure for your yeast infection is to add it to your daily diet. Though you likely already use garlic in stir fries, pasta sauces, and meat marinades, garlic’s curative properties are most potent when it is ingested raw, although this might not be an appetizing prospect for many people as garlic has an especially potent taste. You can utilize both ways of eating garlic by following this great recipe below!

Recipe: Speedy Ginger and Garlic Stir Fry


  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 tbsp peeled and chopped ginger
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce


  • In a large frying pan or wok, heat up ½ tbsp. sesame oil. When warmed, add 2 cloves of minced garlic and the 2 tbsp of chopped ginger.
  • After a couple of minutes, add the chopped chicken to the pan.
  • Make sure the chicken is cooked on all sides before adding the onion and broccoli. Cook for about five minutes, until the onion is translucent and the broccoli tender but with a slight crunch.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, remaining ½ tbsp. of sesame oil, and the remaining two cloves of minced garlic. Add to the stir to create a yummy sauce.
  • Serve the stir fry over boiled rice or egg noodles and enjoy!


This recipe uses both raw and cooked garlic, thereby fighting off your yeast infection on two fronts. If you would prefer to use other vegetables or protein, feel free to substitute!

How to Use Garlic Paste to Cure Yeast Infections in Men

You can also apply garlic topically to treat a penile yeast infection or athlete’s foot. The best way to do this is to make a paste from the garlic, which you can learn how to do in this article about using garlic to treat anal yeast infections. You can then apply the paste right at the site of the infection, and it should be left on for at least one hour, or even overnight. When the treatment time is complete, rinse the area with lukewarm water and dry it thoroughly – this is an incredibly important step as the candida yeast thrives in warm, moist environments so you want to make sure your skin is as dry as possible!

The Pros and Cons of Using Home Remedies for Yeast Infections in Men

Hopefully you have now learned some great tips and advice for using garlic to naturally cure yeast infections. Garlic is one of the many home remedies that I suggest on this site, and because all of the ingredients in these natural cures are straight from nature, you can combine these treatments and use them simultaneously to treat your yeast infection even more quickly and efficiently.

This is one of the many advantages that garlic and other home remedies have over prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications – these medicines are likely to cause harmful and irritating side effects, and may have bad reactions to other medications that you take regularly. So use garlic and you will be using cures that work with your body, rather than against it, to cure your athlete’s foot or penile yeast infection!
