Have yeast infections in armpit, dry scalp, red blotches. History of perianal abscess. Serious condition?

Hi im 27 an two years ago I had a large perianal abcess lanced and packed in my groin . I suffered with the 3.5 cm deep wound for almost a year until it fully healed. During this year of healing other abcess appeared and were treated with antibiotics which I also used to stop my wound from being infected. After my cut had healed I had a very nasty yeast infection in my pubic area and mow get exma on my back and chest which I treat with a steroid cream. I now suffer from yeast infections in my armpit and have a dry scalp and get red blotches after a shower. For the last 3 months ive also had loose stools everyday. Does this sound like I have a serious condition to you

hi..thanks for your query.
The first thing that is advisable in your case is to do a few blood tests to determine the immune status of your body.most important ones should be Diabetes and HIV.
Fungal infections should be treated with Topical Clotrimazole Cream twice daily on the affected areas.oral anti- histaminics may be required to reduce itching , if any.The 'blotches' after bath may be a manifestation of Urticaria and might require prolonged treatment as well.
Please consult your dermatologist for a complete check up and therapy .
Hope this helps..take care.
