dermdoc19 :

Good morning

dermdoc19 :

This sounds quite characteristic for a yeast ( Candida) infection. I would recommend Lotrimin Cream, to be applied twice a day for three weeks ( one week after this should clear up to prevent a recurrence. I would also apply Zea-sorb AF powder after bathing and before exercising.

dermdoc19 :

Discontinue the hydrocortisone cream and the Lanacaine cream.

dermdoc19 :

You should also be checked for diabetes since this can be a contributing factor.

Customer:

Are both over the counter?

dermdoc19 :

Yes.

dermdoc19 :

Use both products.

Customer:

where do I find the powder. why you insist getting check for diabetes?

dermdoc19 :

There is a correlation between diabetes and yeast infections. The powder should be found in pretty much any pharmacy. I know Walgreen's and CVS have it, at least in my neck of the woods. It is made by Stiefel.

dermdoc19 :

Patients with diabetes tend to have high sugar levels and some decrease in skin immunity. Yeast grows well with higher sugar levels.

Customer:

okay. thanks and i will be getting that check also.

dermdoc19 :

You're welcom.

Miconcazole, (Micatin), is probably just as good. If this becomes recurrent you may need an oral medication such as Diflucan, but either Lotrimin or Micatin should do the trick for now.
Feel free to get back to me with any further questions.
Expert:  dermdoc19 replied 2 years ago.
Did you have problems finding the medications? If there is any burning you might add something like Eucerin Original Formula. Sometimes, as the yeast is killed off, they can release some chemicals which sting. The Eucerin Formula should minimize that.

Oh, one last thing: ;you should avoid Lanacane. We find that a good number of people are allergic to the caines topically ( Xylocaine anesthetic is fine though). So that might have been aggravating things.
