Yeast infections of the skin are usually caused by a yeast called candidiasis. Yeast often develops in folds in the skin such as under your breasts, groin folds or in your underarms because these areas are warm and moist. It presents as a red itchy rash which spreads over time. Treatment options for yeast infections of the skin include prescription topical anti-yeast creams and in severe cases, oral anti-yeast medication. The dermatology professionals at Kentucky Dermatology can assess your skin lesions and discuss the most appropriate treatment options.
