I had Canesten antifungal cream for an infection a few years ago, but the current problem does not want to go away and does not bear the symptoms of the previous fungal infection. My personal hygiene regime includes a twice-daily cold hose-out (no soap used) with the shower head to help prevent infections but this has not really helped. I seem to be unable to control this problem, can you advise a solution. This is a common and characteristically recurring problem. Anywhere on the body where skin touches skin, such as the natal cleft you describe, the warmth and moistness makes it a perfect place for the incubation of yeasts and fungi.
All of us are covered with a variety of bacteria, yeasts and fungi. What is remarkable is not that we occasionally develop infections, but that our immune systems keep us free of them for most of the time. The response to Canesten cream would suggest that this is either a yeast or fungal infection causing an associated eczema /dermatitis. Most commonly these are yeast infections and creams such as Canesten or Nystan help to reduce the infection. If there is irritation it also helps to add hydrocortisone cream to reduce this. There are several products that combine the two ingredients.
Once you have cleared the problem, keeping the area thoroughly clean and dry will help keep it at bay. Constant use of creams is not to be recommended as it will ultimately reduce the body's natural protection. If you find your infection very resistant to treatment, do ask your GP or practice nurse to check your urine for sugar to exclude diabetes.
It can sometimes make itself known through an increase in such infections. Yours sincerely. The NetDoctor Medical Team. Last updated: 14. 03. 2014.
