I had a red, dry, itchy rash on my thigh for 2 weeks that kept getting bigger because I scratched. It stopped itching and turned purple the day I applied fluconazole left-over from vaginal candida treatment. So, was my thigh rash from candida?

Did it improve?: It is never a good idea to use prescription medication for uses other than for what it was prescribed. That being said the question here is did your rash improve after applying the anti fungal cream? If so then most likely this was a fungal infection. If not improved consider a virtual visit with an image of the area attached and a Healthtap doctor can help you now. ...Read more
