Yeast infection on skin

I guess the cortisone is rearing its ugly head so to speak.  I have a yeast infection in all the folds of skin....groin, under breast, etc.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I've read that taking steroids and high glucose can cause this....

My Cushing's buddies get these all the time - and I get them still now from time to time - I have a little one now.
I use medicated powder and keep the areas dry. I also used OTC creams for yeast like generic tinactin ones. You have to keep things dry so as much as  you can, don't wear bra. I would also wash my clothing in borax as my doc said it killed yeast so I would not re-infect myself.

If they are bad - see a doc to get a stronger cream. But they are awful.
