Intertrigo: "Yeast infection" is not a true infection. There may be a proliferation of yeasts as well as other microorganisms, but the basic situation is sweating and chaffing.

Does yeast infections cause scaling and peeling of skin of the labia because that's what im getting from my yeast its itchy and burning peeling?

Yeast is a good bet: These are typical symptoms of candida vulvovaginitis, i.e. a vaginal yeast infecttion. If your symptoms were mild, it might be OK to try an over-the-counter yeast cream like Monistat and others. But other conditions are possible and these symptoms sound pretty severe. I would recommend you see your doctor, both for diagnosis and to make sure there's not an underlying health problem, like diabetes. ...Read more

Staying dry, using powders, etc. Can help. Ultimately a good structured weight loss program will help, but certainly now, there are many medication, some Rx strength that can help cure the yeast infection. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a yeast infection and I used the monistat 1 day treatment. My symptoms are better but I still have a little itching and irritation. Is the yeast infection going away? Could the monistat cause some irritation also?

Examination: We can not really draw conclusions from this information. You could repeat the yeast treatment and use an over the counter cream that lasts for more than 1 day. There are other things that can cause itching besides though. If yeast cream is not working then you may have something else. An obgyn can help. ...Read more

I'm 22y/o, virgin. Is it normal for labia surface to looks like cauliflower if I had yeast infection? Is it the skin reaction due to the infection?

Probably not: The labial surface is normally smooth; any lesion, particularly one that resembles a cauliflower (and could be an hpv lesion or genital wart) needs further investigation. By virgin, I assume you mean no vaginal penetration. Hpv can be transmitted by oral/vaginal or even hand-finger/vaginal contact. Even condoms can't give full protection against hpv. Please get a check up! ...Read more

It: It would be very unusual for herpes or vaginal yeast infection to spread throughout the body. Other medical issues, such as MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus), eczema, psoriasis, pityriasis, or other dermatological issues can cause a rash on the body. Trying a mild anti-bacterial soap and mild lotion may be helpful, but if it is a worsening rash, or if the patient had fever or new symptoms, then the patient should be medically evaluated. ...Read more
