Suggest treatment for rashes on the breasts

I have candida (sp). I broke out in a rash, especially under my breasts. under the over lap of my belly, in the creases of my legs in the pubic area and was severely broken out on my right hip two weeks ago. The doctor wasn t sure if it was cellulitis, candida or the shingles. He treated me for the shingles and a yeast infection. I am a breast cancer patient with metastis to my bones. Every cure I look at is just a big sales pitch.

Hi.
As per your case history you are having fungal infection called as tinea corporis.
My treatment advice is -
1. Maintain good hygiene and bath twice daily.
2. Apply an antifungal cream like clotrimazole cream twice daily on it.
3. Take an antihistamine medication like levocetrizine twice daily for 7-10 days.
4. Other treatment options are oral fluconazole, itraconazole and terbinafine taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

Thanks.
