Regarding "satellites" caused by a yeast infection. When wiping the affected area after urination, can you irritate it further by essentially wiping the white portion away?

In brief: Infection

will spread by rubbing or friction.
Consult your physician for a Rx for diflucan (fluconazole) and only wear cotton boxer undergarments. Wiping can increase irriation. I would also advise anti-fungal cream such as Monistat or Gyne-Lotrimin ( clotrimazole )
