Re: Diabetes and Yeast Infections in Men
Don't know if this would be called helping or not.
Alittle over 1 year ago I complained to my diabetic doc about red irriation on skin in groin, under my gut and under armpits. He said some kind of fungal infection more than likey yeast. I had been putting Desitin cream on it already, which wasn't helping. He gave Rx of Nystat powder. I did that for a few months and it was like a cycle get better and then start again with little red spots that grew. I complained to my regular doc and she looked at it and said same thing but gave me a Rx of Nizoral tabs for 2 weks. No improvement and she said keep using Nystat while taking it. And tried Lamsal cream and lotrimon powder until next visit. Then she gave Rx for 2 wks of Diflucan tabs and it cleared just about completely. I thought would finish clearing up on it's own but got worse again. Next appointment she gave another Rx for Diflucan for 90 days. About 2 weeks into it skin was awful go got appointment for a dermatogolist. He looked at it and said more than likey had fungal infection but thought skin needed help healing. He gave Rx of 2.5% hydrocortisone cream to put on Bid. Everything looked good after couple weeks and repeat visit to skin clinic they said keep Rx of cortisone to use prn, keep my blood surgars good and drink plently of water. And said more than likely will be an on going thing from now on. Was clear about 2 months now have a couple pink spots in groin so been using cream again.
Werid thing is I drink plenty of water daily(@least 2 liters of plain water daily not counting other drinks), my blood surgars have run great during all this time and my A1C was running alittle over 7 and last week was 6.6( agv. 134).
Hope you good luck and hope you get it cleared up quickly.
