To make things short and to the point, I believe I have a male yeast infection. Has anyone used any kind of meds to remove this problem? I use a steroid cream to keep it under control but I woiuld really like to eliminate the problem. I'd like to hear from anyone that has USED some meds to stop this pain in the butt stuff!!!

How are your bgs? If they are higher than normal then you are at a risk for more infections.

Cocunut oil does help in keeping your skin clean and is believed to have a good affect in controlling several skin disorders. But if you have a serious medical infection you need to put medications and get your tests done as per your doctor's recommendations

After things clean up cocunut can help in better skin management

What do you have a skin rash like eczema. I had a small patch of skin the size of your thumbnail. Doctor diagnosed it as ringworm then eczema and treated it with steroid cream for 10 years. My second doctor of 3 years finally sent me to a specialist who did a simple biopsy. Had it cut out a month ago so I don't know what it is you think you have but you should get it check out and dealt with. HBS

I know a few years ago I dealt with a yeast infection for 1-1/2 years! Nothing, and I mean nothing would get rid of it. Of course my blood sugar was way high and out of control, so a simple yeast infection turned into a systemic candida infection, meaning I had it throughout my whole system. Yes, they are painful, annoying, make you feel terrible, and just inconvenient. I had to go on Diflucan 20 mg daily for 3 months before it kicked it out of my system. Now, I don't know if you are male or female, but I would certainly get to a doctor and find out what is going on. I had tried every treatment; over the counter, holistic, old remedies, prescription creams, prescription drugs, etc. Since getting my bg's back down, I have not had such a problem, but I'll tell you I lived through a life of hell for that 1-1/2 years!
Good Luck!

thanks for the info--high sugar is the enemy
By the way i got diagnosed with D only when i had a fungal infection that just wasn't going away. I had sugars in 200's and 300's.

Once the BG came down the infection went away...

The dreaded anal itch, I am all to familiar with this scenario. Had a yeast infection from ears to my toes. The ears were the worst, horribly stinging pain.

BG control is the best solution. A mild solution of vinegar and Isopropyl alcohol will help. You have to give it as much air as publicly possible, yeast requires a trio of environmental factors, warmth, food supply, high humidity. Warmth and high humidity are easily taken care of, food supply, you have to reduce your BG levels. If all else fails get a script for Fluconisole.

Start eating Acidolphilis like candy.

thanks for the info. maybe I dont have a fungal infection. I use a cream called "triamcinolone acetonide" and when the itches surface I apply this and it stops the itch. Are fungal and yeast infections the same?

Yes yeast is a type of fungus. The topical creams work for short periods of time and require constant application for a long duration to be conclusive in ridding you of the yeast infection.
