What's the question: Sounds like a continuation of the poison oak which can last for weeks unless interrupted by treatment with steroids. If you have a yeast infection on top of this it might be a little concerning with regards to your immune status, but if it remains localized may just be due to the exposed areas of contact dermatitis. If your develop any other symptoms see your doctor.
