Basically I have jock itch symptoms on my scrotum and inner thighs, but absolutely no rash of any sort. Very minor redish tint to the scrotum.
They think it’s nerve damage and are sending me to another Dermatologist to do scrappings of the areas that don’t have rashes, to check for yeast but are thinking it’s nerve damage.
My friend I want to do my best for you.
During an active superficial yeast infection (that one you described) with a unbalanced immune system toward to Th2, yeast penetrates deep in the tissues (cells penetration). After an antifungal treatment the superficial active yeast infection is eradicated, but the intracellular no. Candida adopts a non-growing form inside the cells but still produces metabolites and waste that cause redeness, burning sensation, and inflammation. The medical terminology for this is Chronic Atrophic Erythematous Candidiasis.
What happened to you is just what happens many times after an active yeast infection. It is known as an intracellular candidiasis or a residual yeast infection.
I hope this help you. It is hard to be going from Dr to Dr and don’t know what you most likely have.
