Azole resistance?: A small percentage of vaginal yeast infections are caused by Candida types resistant to the most commonly used yeast treatments (the "azole" drugs -- miconazole, clotrimazole, fluconazole, etc). Return to your doctor to confirm the diagnosis; if yeast is reconfirmed, ask about alternate treatments, such as nystatin, caspofungin, or flucytosine. ...Read more

May not be yeast!: That pattern is more typical of seborrheic dermatitis. "yeast" medicines won't help, but anti-inflammatory ("cortisone" related) creams will. If your own doc is having trouble with this, you might see a pediatric dermatologist. Keep in mind that to diagnose your infant accurately, we'd need to know his age, health status, & what has and hasn't worked. Actually seeing the rash helps us too! ...Read more

Being treated for BV and Yeast Infection. Developed bright red flat spots on groin area. Also have rash on entire body. What could be causing this??

Drug allergy?: There are many possibilities, but I would guess an allergic reaction to one of the treatments you are receiving. Metronidazole, the usual treatment for BV, could do it; and so could fluconzole (Diflucan) orally if that's your yeast treatment. I suggest you hold additional doses and contact the doctor or clinic treating you in the morning. ...Read more

Maybe not fungus: Newborns have a lot of adjusting to do to extra uterine life. One of them is skin adaptation. Are you doing this treatment on your own or under a pediatrician's advice? Neck crease rashes are usually seborrhea, not a fungus. Check with your pediatrician for proper attention to her skin. ...Read more

A: A rash that has been treated with all these therapies is very difficult to make suggestions for further therapies without seeing the rash. I would have expected a typical diaper dermatitis due to yeast to have cleared with the ketoconazole. I would be hesitant to use a stronger steroid under a diaper. I would suggest making an appointment with your pediatrician or a dermatologist. Emergency room doctors are generally not use to treating diaper rashes. Rashes just have to be seen to diagnose accurately and treat appropriately. ...Read more
