Yes. Antibiotics even reach the skin, which is why they are sometimes used for acne. When you kill good bacteria, yeast that is always there goes out of control.
Take an internal probiotic once you are done with antibiotics. Natural products that fight yeast are tea tree oil, baking soda, white vinegar. You can use Lotrimin cream. Follow the directions on the tube.
it's not necessarily yeast, it could be Erythrasma (bacteria)
Antibiotics do foster yeast infections, it's called
Antibiotic candidiasis (also known as "Iatrogenic candidiasis") is a Candidal infection caused by antibiotic use.:311
Antibiotic candidiasis can result from overuse or over-prescription of broad-spectrum antibiotics (such as oxytetracycline commonly used for the control of acne). Consequently, it is now rare for such antibiotics to be prescribed for extended periods. The apparent effect of the antibiotic is to reduce the commensal bacterial flora in the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in an environment conducive to the propagation of existing candida in the absence of any major competition. This situation may remain stable until the patient stops taking the antibiotic, when the bacterial flora re-establish and displace the candida into the genital region of the patient. This can result in redness and itching (thrush in women and dhobi itch in men) which can last for a similar period to that of the antibiotic course. The rash can be controlled or cured by a suitable antifungal drug, but the infection is likely to clear up of its own accord in due course (presumably when the original bacterial/fungal balance has been properly restored).[wiki]
The best home remedy against mold is Baking Soda. also Bleach, vinegar and some types of mouth wash.
i know it isnt a bacteria infection, lol i had over 300 antibiotic pills in 5-6 months, so i know it isnt that. it does sound antibiotic candidasis, im using a antifungal cream and antifungal powder, and its controlling it, im also drinking baking soda to help the yeast inside of me, and im taking garlic pills. plus i am drinking nothing but water and cut out alot of sugar, so im hoping in due time, it will help.
not all types of antibiotics can fight the bacteria that gives Erythrasma.
Drinking Baking Soda won't help. easy on that because it can increase your blood pressure and even trigger internal oedema...
Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) must be applied as topical treatment. directly on the part in a water solution. it is extremely effective on fungal infections, I've tested it on myself actually.
