no
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 10 months ago

I would try an antifungal cream to the affected area.

It might be a systemic infection though in which oral fluconazole is needed.

is this helpful?

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.
