After each of my two babies was born, I developed a yeast rash on the inside of my thighs -- hours spent cross legged nursing, extra carbs in any form to maintain weight while breastfeeding and cure my ravenous hunger, plus hormonal adjustments. With DS and DD, I was able to clear that up. BUT, I developed a spot on my leg the size of a quarter that has grown to a red, irritated mess. My holistically minded MD told me to use lavendar, coconut oil, and tea tree oil -- all of which I did for weeks but it grew and grew. I then tried Diflucan. Then I used GSE topically for a few weeks. So after a couple of months or so, I saw her again and she suggested prescription ketosone (or something like that). I'm using it daily but the thing is still not going away AND I have a small satellite patch on my arm.
I have all but cut out refine carbs, sugar, etc. and am eating as clean as possible. Just got some raw milk this week too which has been yummy and fine in my system. I am taking lots of probiotics too.
What else can I try? It's red, itchy, and just plain gross.
