Customer Question
Have a rash in...

Have a rash in my armpits which internist and I thought was a yeast infection - I've been taking fluconazole for 5 days now and using Nystatin powder at night, but rash seems to be getting worse and it's spreading down to my ribcage on both sides. It is super itchy and when I put the Nystatin powder on it, it makes the itching even worse.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

Have been dealing with this for about 1 month now, but just started taking the meds this past week. I was using hydrocortisone which made the itching better but made the rash worse.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have cecal cancer, but never had radiation or chemo - tumor was just removed through surgery and 18 lymph nodes - all was clear and we've just been doing regular CEA checkups. I do have a history of yeast infections in my skin folds which is why we went with the standard treatment for me (fluconazole).

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
