I am male and have an active yeast infection (jock itch). I decided it would help if I shaved my pubic hairs. As I was shaving, I nicked myself in 2 places. The nicks bleed, but not bad or for very long. I applied nystatin cream on the area, including nicks, when I got out of the shower. I am also taking oral medication (terbinafine). Should I be concerned with the infection become systemic?

After 4 weeks of topical and 3 weeks of the oral terbinafine, he perscribed me a tube of Betamethasone, and everyday it has gotten better.
