Question
I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING RECURRENT YEAST INFECTIONS. I HAVE ENDURED INTERTRIGO TWICE THIS PAST SEVERAL MONTHS. I ALSO HAVE A CORRESPONDING RASH WHICH OCCURRED AT THE SAME POINT, ON MY UPPER CHEST AREA. I HAVE CUSHINGS.
I HAVE ASKED MY DERMATOLOGIST FOR HELP AND NOT RECEIVED ANY.
I SEEK RELIEF FROM THE CHRONIC ITCHING AND PAIN.

Answer
Any yeast infection responds to iodine. The medication to use is Vytone Crram twice a day as it has a form of iodine in it. Normally skin lesions are not painful unless infected in which case you would need oral antibiotics. If there is no infection, I would see a neurologist for pain management.
