What is the treatment for a skin rash?

will tea tree oil help with what I think is an underarm yeast infection? & can they be alittle painful? like a burning sensation? i've had it for over 6 months & have tried EVERYTHING including wearing no deodorant or anything for weeks & the "flat" rash won't go away! Its not a discoloration either because I tried the new dove underarm "lightening" deodorant too & it BURNED! so I stopped :/

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,

In my opinion you are suffering from hyperpigmented variant of Pityriasis versicolor. But it could be a tinea infection also. It is not advisable to apply any cream/spray other than doctor's physician because it may cause irritant reaction. I would recommend you to visit your Dermatologist to confirm your diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
