Yes you can it: Is only the same medicine as in some antifungal creams that you would put on your skin. However, if the Monistat does not work then you need to get to a healthcare provider to get checked for infection like from a STD. It is unusual for men to get yeast infections. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
NotalgiaParesthetica: What you describe sounds like "notalgia paresthetica". It is usually caused by irritation of nerve roots as they exit the spine.

Is it normal for antifungal cream to cause a burning sensation? It's at the back passage area and don't want too damage the skin further?

Burning sensation feeling on skin over pelvic area. No other symptoms. Is this nerve damage or just caused from health anxiety and stress? Ovarian cyst
It depends: The pelvic area is from navel to upper thighs. Are you saying lower abdomen or lower back/sacral area; deep or on the skin?

If it is not painful to press on lower belly, move the hips or lower back, bend or extend, then not likely internal or spine/joint related. ...Read more

"Burning" type pain often signifies a problem with a local nerve to the involved area. ...Read more
