Thigh creases

It started after antibiotics for UTI over 1yr ago.I've had several courses of Diflucan which helped temporarily and Nystatin cream. But it kept coming back. Now it is constant. Lots of itching and burning and draining.

Itching and draining over 1 year.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

I am sorry you are having these issues

it sounds like you have a lot of skin fungal infections going on

skin fungus likes to grow in areas of moist skin folds which are warm

you should be using a powder like nystatin powder and vaginal antifungal treatments like monistat

fungal powders need to be applied 3-4 times a day for 4-6 weeks to kill fungus

the powders have to be used for 1-2 weeks after the rash and odor goes away to make sure the fungus goes way

and after you do that, you should be using baby powder daily on the areas to keep the skin dry to prevent the fungus from coming back

Let me know if you have other questions.

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.
