The appearance of the skin varies. Typically we will see at least one of the following lesions involving the face (around lips), neck, armpits, or feet:
1. Oily/greasy skin
2. Hair loss
3. Thickened leathering skin
4. Scaly skin
5. Red skin
Yeast infections may be very itchy. The development of a yeast infection indicates some underlying cause that allowed the yeast to overgrow. Most commonly it has been associated with allergies (environmental or food). Treatment involves a topical medication and/or oral medication for at least 2-4 weeks.
