  • Yes, he can. It normally manifests as jock itch. You would use an anti fungal cream.

  • Not sure what it would look like but I'm betting it won't feel too good.. He will have to see his Dr to be treated, it's not the same for a male as it is for a female.

  • Yes, they are contagious and if left untreated may continue to spread until appropriate action is taken to get rid of the infection. If you don't believe me, google it!

  • Yes, and ya'll can pass it back and forth to each other unless it's treated, the "ping pong effect".

  • Yep. Sometimes it appears as jock itch. Sometimes the skin on the penis gets a dry, flaky appearance. It can cause itching and burning on urination too. Topical creams usually get rid of it. Soetimes if it is in the urethra an oral antifungal is needed.
