Q:
How to treat skin rash caused by yeast infections?

A:
Both over-the-counter and prescription medications can help improve your symptoms.

Here are some of them:

  • Anti-fungal creams
    These include clotrimazole (Lotrimin) and ketoconazole (Nizoral).
  • Oral itraconazole (Sporanox) and fluconazole (Diflucan)
    These can be helpful for paronychia, a skin rash grows around your nails. It can also be helpful if you apply anti-fungal creams and corticosteroids to the rash. Moisture should be avoided.
  • Keep it clean and dry
    Yeast prefers a warm and moist environment. So try to keep the affected areas clean and dry.

It is better to see a doctor first before you take any medication.
