Hello and hope you are doing well.
I can confirm the exact cause and treatment of your condition only after a complete medical history, clinical examination and work up. Recurrent infections like fungus and yeast may indicate an immune system weakness too. Take a healthy and nutritious diet. Avoid stress and too much of caffeine or alcohol. Recurring yeast infections can sometimes be a sign of an STI or superadded bacterial infection. It is advisable to get tested to rule out STIs.See a dermatologist. You may need oral antifungal and some other medications. Keep me posted.
Best luck and take care!
