Yeast infxn. Many formerly prescription anti-yeast medications are now available over-the-counter w/o prescription. I believe you're referring to fluocinonide (http://www.drugs.com/mtm/fluocinonide-topical.html) which is a potent steroid. While it's useful to stop skin from itching, I wouldn't recommend for a yeast infxn. Instead, you can try OTC stuff prior to seeing your doc who can confirm it's yeast. Read more...

If this does not resolve in a week, see your physician, and be sure not to use anything for at least 3 days before being seen to present a clear picture. Read more...
