Any nurses or doctors? Very graphic picture inside of skin problem. **ETA**

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

This is under my c-section "flap"  My scar is fine but it is this skin that rubs together.  I just had my third baby 6 months ago.  is this a yeast infection.  It doesn't really itch it just hurts.  Should I give it time to heal up or go in about it?

I know I need to lose weight so no need to tell me that.

I know I need to do some major ladyscaping but I have not had the time or energy to do that yet.

ETA:  It has a funky smell.

put something between the skin folds so that the skin doesnt rub together or sweat on it, its trapped moisture.

 I would start by putting some neosporin on it.  Do you do that?

Yeast infection I'd say.

I have gotten something simular, try lotramin or another antifungal athletes foot cream, see if that helps clear it up and ease the pain a bit, and consider calling your doctor or getting a referal to dermatology for help preventing it.

oh, owie!!!!  It does look yeast-y. I would get an antifungal cream for that and see if that helps.

Hoky shit. Shave, wash it, and slap some yeast infection cream on that. Try to let it air out and keep it dry.

This is super gross and probably TMI but I've had that rash under my boob- 9 months ago I started the Candida Diet (killing systemic candida, no sugar diet) and my body went CRAZY and I got that same rash under my boobs about 2 weeks into "die-off". Used Monistat cream and tea tree oil on it, cleared up in a few days
