Brief Answer: Photograph required Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query, Sometimes the yeast infection becomes resistant to treatment and requires prolonged oral therapy. Also there are chances of secondary bacterial infection of skin already infected by yeast. I would like to see a photograph of the involved area. This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis. There is an option to upload photograph on right side of query page. Please utilize it. Waiting for your response. Thank you
