Quoting Rette Mich:" Ohh its all too easy for some people to get staph in any area. My Kaden has gotten it on every part of his body. But Im no help as to if they look alike because Ive never seen a yeast infection."
Quoting Squeaky McGee:" Sure. You can get a staph infection anywhere. Staph aureus is normal flora on pretty much all body surfaces."
Quoting ♥K:" I did a lot of googling of rashes before bringing him in, and it definitely looks more like a yeast ... [snip!] ... very few pedis in my area. I just know google isn't that reliable that's why I asked if it's possible for them to look similar."
Quoting Squeaky McGee:" What creams have you been using? A yeast infection won't clear up with Desitin or the like. It will need an antifungal. How did she diagnose it? Did she swab and culture it?"
Quoting ♥K:" No swab or culture. Just looked at it. It was an hour past close so she was rushing I've used johnsons, ... [snip!] ... paste, and bordeauxs. I was going to buy monitstat tomorrow (I was told that helps yeast) if that's what she said it was."
Quoting Squeaky McGee:" If you haven't used any antifungals, it could very well be a yeast infection. I mean, it's possible ... [snip!] ... that for certain without culturing it. Does the area have satellite lesions (little individual red bumps off by themselves)?"
Quoting ♥K:" They're all grouped. It's 2 large red patches with tons of little red bumps within each patch. It's right in the fold of his legs, I don't know how to describe the spot. "
Quoting Squeaky McGee:" Did the doctor prescribe anything for it? I would try some antifungal cream. It may take a few days for it to clear up, but it will probably do the trick. Also, let him air out as much as possible."
