Nystatin keeps it from spreading or worsening but it's still there after a year. It was a serious case; now it's a daily annoyance for her. Any suggestions? The web is not very helpful on this, and I want to make her more comfortable. She is 70 and in otherwise rather good health.
I used Desatine when my Mom just hadredness. I know, itsca barrier cream but it cleared up my Mom.
Yeast/fungus cannot survive in an acidic environment.
It does not sting and I do not smell like vinegar. I also wash my bras after each wearing.
When her skin is irritated her doctor prescribed this
KETOCONAZOLE 2% CREAM-fungal cream as needed for rashes.

Gold Bond Ultimate Comfort Body Powder Aloe, White Fresh, 10 Ounce
Its an everyday battle and sponge bathing, patting dry twice a day.
Drying the area with a hair dryer set to cool is also recommended.
With My Mom, she had to wear a bra to keep skin off of skin. She wore cotton cup ones. May have had some polyester but breathable. The area has to be kept dry. Antibiotics cause yeast infections. Maybe try a probiotic. Mom was always given one when on an antibiotic for UTI. Yeast infections feed off of sugar so limit her intake.
