Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.
Candida usually affects body folds like axilla, groin, submammary folds, finger and toe webs etc. However, palmar skin is a relatively unusual site for candida infection.
I request you to kindly upload an image of the affected area in "Reports Section" so that I am able to guide you better.

Regards
