Intertrigo

Usually found in folds of skin, intertrigo often appears as a rash on the inner thighs, armpits, stomach and underside of the breasts. Intertrigo is caused by a yeast or bacterial infection and may ooze, itch or hurt. Usually, intertrigo develops because the skin chafes together, especially in those who are overweight, diabetic or confined to bed. Heat, moisture and friction can exacerbate the infection.

Depending on whether the intertrigo is bacterial or fungal in nature, your physician will prescribe a topical antifungal, topical antibiotic or oral antibiotic. Certain medicated powders can also help this condition.
