candidiasis can occur in various parts of the body in the skin and mucous membrane including oral, genital and perianal mucosa.The folds of the skin or intertriginous areas like the inframmamary region in females, toe webs are particularly vulnerable.Constant moisture in these areas are a precipitating factor.Diabetes and other causes of immunosuppresion including HIV, oral antibiotic therapies can precipitate candidiasis.Treatment would include local application of antifungals like miconazole or ketoconazole, keeping the area dry,oral antifungals like itraconazole, fluconazole.Oral applications include miconazole oral gel and paint.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
