See a DR: Although there are good medicines to help with thush, and fungi elsewhere, more importantly...Why would you have this. To anyone with recurrent or diffuse yeast, i suggest being checked for other infections and diabetes. Some medications can also make a person prone to yeast (oral and inhaled steroids, for example), but even then extensive or recurrent yeast infections are rare.
