What do you recommend for a multiple-yeast infection problem -- in groin/upper thigh area, vaginal, and toe nail fungus?

I am a 61-yr-old woman with a persistent yeast infection in groin/upper thigh area with unbearably intense itching and irritation -- which I've had for about two years. When my skin in between my folds gets moist in that area from sweating it causes my skin to turn into almost a paste and wipe away. The odor is sour smelling and similar to the persistent fungus on all of my toenails -- which has persisted for several years.

I've also had a persistent vaginal yeast infection for over a year now, and I have chronic IBS, which I've had for about 30+ years. The infection in my groin/upper thighs is the most unbearable. Is it possible that the toenail fungus has spread to my groin?

Toenail fungus is typically caused by Tinea unguium and does not infect the skin. However, other species of tinea cause other skin infections. The best thing for you to do is to take a look at this webpage on tinea to see if any of those symptoms match whats going on with your thighs. If it doesn't, it is possible for Candida to infect the skin, especially in the folds. These areas will weep fluid if the skin is broken.

That page also contains treatment ideas for the nails and skin that you could discuss with your doctor. Your doctor should be able to identify what species of yeast is infecting your skin so they can prescribe the right medications.

The skin yeast infections page here also has a list of natural treatment methods you could try for both the nails and your skin. Without testing though, it will be an experiment to find what works the best.

Studies have shown that 98% of women that suffer from chronic vaginal yeast infections also have an overgrowth in their intestine. Because of this, they are basically re-infecting themselves month after month. In order to get the vaginal infections under control, you also have to get the intestinal yeast under control. We have outlined a yeast infection treatment plan here that you might want to follow.

You could also see your doctor, have them take a culture and send it to a lab to identify the species and what medications will work on that species.

Any other questions let us know.
