Can a yeast infection cause broken skin or redness on the vulva?

Can a yeast infection cause broken skin or redness on the vulva?

Yes: Some yeast infections will cause intense pruritus (itching) of not just the vagina but also the vulva - this is called vulvovaginal candidiasis. The itching can be so intense that the patient can literally break or injure the skin of the vulva due to extreme scratching, which is sometimes inadvertently done during sleep. The doc will note what are called excoriations (shallow tears or abrasions). ...Read more

I've had "vulvar dermatitis" x's 2 yr now effectively tx w/ clobetasol. Now having same itch on both arm pits & anus- no rash bumps or redness. Ideas?
