A yeast infection of the mouth would most likely be caused by Candida Albicans and occurs in males and females. Candida is commonly found in the mouths of denture wearers, babies, and those who are immunosuppressed due to disease or steroid use for example. These are all broad statements though and if you have a concern I would recommend you see your dentist as they are trained in oral pathology.

Can a man get a yeast infection from a woman that has it?

Yes, if he has intercourse with her, he can get a penile (penis) yeast infection. A man who knows his sexual partner has a yeast infection should wear a condom to protect himself from getting a yeast infection. Men often show absolutely no signs of having a yeast infection if they do have one. Some symptoms he could have would be a white discharge from the penis, and itching, irritation, and soreness of the head of the penis. But most men who have a yeast infection do not have ANY symptoms. However, the yeast infection can still cause damage to your internal organs, even without any outward symptoms. So it is important to treat it if you do get a yeast infection or if you have had intercourse with a woman who has a yeast infection.

Candida albicans, the bacteria that causes a yeast infection is present in everyone, both men and women, even if they are perfectly healthy. The problem arises when the Candida has an overgrowth, which leads to a yeast infection. It is definitely possible for men to get a yeast infection and then pass it onto you. The penis is vulnerable a yeast infection, though chances are significantly lower than that of a woman's. It is possible that the man did not sleep with anyone else as sexual intercourse is only one of the many other possible causes of yeast infection in men. The man may have a weakened immune system, or took antibiotics that killed the good bacteria that are needed to keep the yeast infection from manifesting. Penile yeast infection can also happen with the use of condoms that contain nonxynol-9, so check the label to see if the chemical is present. Simply put, the man may have contracted the yeast infection without sexual intercourse. It may very well be the other causes. To add onto the facts, 75% of women will get a yeast infection at least once in their lifetime, so it may be possible that you have contracted it on your own without the man playing any part in it.
