    Sorry to hear that. Sometimes one can get yeast infections during antibiotic treatments. If he doesn't want to see a doctor he could try the cream we women use for yeast infections or what men use for jock itch. If it's very bad he might need to see a doctor for prescription strength meds. Or, it might be something else entirely. Hope he's better soon.

    Skin lesions are a well-known side effect of this drug (actually a combination of 2 drugs), but he needs to go back to the doctor to check it out.

    Hi dnr77,

    I suffer with skin lesions on my back, both thighs and right calf. I also have sarcoidosis in my right eye.
