Brief Answer:
You can manage yeast infection naturally or with topical medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I donot have details your the yeast infection or other medical history.

Given the history provided by you, I would suggest that you manage the yeast infection naturally.
Yeast is actually not an infection but an overgrowth of yeast already present on your skin.
So do not be surprised if it keeps coming back.
Any medicine or another stressor that disrupts the normal flora can cause yeast infection. To curtail it, you may use topical antifungal medicines to be applied only over the rash. Drink cleaner water with low TDS. Keep blood sugar levels within normal range. Avoid unnecessary antibiotics. Exercise regularly.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
