another great resourse on taking care of a "damp" condition is Healing With WHole Foods by paul pitchford.. this book combines eastern traditons such as aroveda and chinese menicine with modern nutrition and western science. i use this book all the time. recurrant yeast can mean you have a damp condition and need to avoid all dampening foods, like dairy, soy, sweets, etc, these are just examples off the top of my head, you should go to a bookstore and peruse through this book it is huge and $30 so if you cant afford it just go read the parts about yeast and dampness. if you can afford it, i highly reccomend it , its a great, well researched resource on nutrition and using foods to heal your body. on that note, if you are interested in trying acupuncture i have personally had great success with it, they dont only do needles they also work with your diet and use herbs. good luck on whatever you try! i hope you find something that solves this problem for you!
edited to add, your rash could also be cause by what is considered to be a heat condition, so i guess i would look up skin rashes as well as candida and dampness if that book is something you are interested in. for instance you could have a damp heat condition..LOL it sounds silly , but these terms refer to a very interesting system of balance within the body.
