Yeast infection with Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Does anyone get a yeast infection around some of their bumps? I do if they start leaking before I can get them covered and it’s hot. Doesn’t matter how many showers I take or body wash I use, I even rinse in cold water. I just can’t win with this disease.

  1. I get all the scripts for it, and I too mix my powders and when it stings I know it’s working. Or at least that’s what I tell myself.

  2. Have your doctor write a prescription for Nystatin powder. I mix it with Gold Bond Powder in the green bottle and use a powder puff to apply it. The menthol in the Gold Bond might sting for a few minutes (I think that is way Vicks Vapor Rub works too on HS sores) but it usually clears up any heat rash, drainage and yeast infections or at least makes it more tolerable.
