    Do you take oral anti-fungal medication or use topical anti-fungals (that are applied to the skin)? Has the infection been diagnosed by a dermatologist? And what are the symptoms?

    Ok I had yeast on my skin as well and I could not completely get rid of it either with just creams. So finally I got so mad I resorted to putting bleach on my skin and it worked. For a large area I cut up a sponge into a small piece, dipped it in undiluted bleach, applied it on the affected area only for 5 minutes then applied the fungal cream again until it healed. The bleach leaves a red mark and hurts while you apply it but does not hurt when you are done applying it. For a small area I used a q-tip with bleach. Doctors will tell you not to do this because it damages the skin but honestly it's the only thing that got rid of it for me. And the bleach sores healed in a week! This only works on skin not internally

      The thing is yeasts form part of the normal microflora of your skin. As such you cannot eliminate them completely. They only cause problems if they are growing out of control.

      If you have a flare-up of your infection at the moment then get an anti-fungal cream, gel, or spray and apply it until the symptoms have disappeared and then another 4 weeks on top of that. 

      To prevent a relapse use an antifungal shampoo once a week. You can also use an anti-fungal powder daily. The powder also comes as a spray and is really easy to apply. The powder will help to keep the area dry. Also if possible avoid wearing tight trousers and tight underwear (rather use boxer shorts).
