Facial Yeast Infections: Treatment?
Hello, I am 21 years old. I have recently got blemishes and rashes on my face. It is indeed uncomfortable and concerning. I am worried if this condition is treatable or not. My symptoms include itching, ulcers, dry skin, patches, burning and pimples. Please advise some treatment.
@mainak You should always be careful when treating facial rashes or skin conditions as the skin on your face is sensitive. You could experience reactions to medications or treatments that you apply to your face even if you don’t have a reaction on other parts of your body. Common medical treatments for yeast infections include: antifungal cream, often with clotrimazole as the active ingredient, antifungal lotion, often with tolnaftate as the active ingredient, oral antifungals, often with fluconazole as the active ingredient corticosteroid cream, such as hydrocortisone. Be sure to use steroid creams in combination with an antifungal — not alone — to treat a yeast infection. Preventing future yeast infections may be as simple as implementing a better facial care regimen. If your yeast infection coincides with using a new facial product, you should stop using it to be safe.
