What type of medicine i should take for intertrigo and vaginal yeast ?

I have intertrigo under my breasts. I am very clean and practice universal procautions to avoid spreading. I still spread infection to other areas no matter how careful I was. It has been sooooo vert hot and humid for the past month and a half it has been very hard to stay dry one hundred percent. I now have symtoms of a vaginal yeast infection also. I am using diet and antifungals. Should I use something else?

Since your infection is spreading ahead consult your treating doctor to change the course of antifungals.sometimes higher range of drug needed if lower fails. also you can use some antifungal cream. but internal medicine is always imp. make sure with the diagnosis again, here it cant be said without local examination.
I hope I answered your query. Wish you good health.
