The human body is home to hundreds of different types of bacteria. These bacteria live inside the mouth, under the nails, and on the skin, yet most of them are not dangerous to you. In fact, most of them help your body carry out normal functions and promote optimal health. However, there are certain bacteria that are harmful and can multiply uncontrollably and very rapidly. Among these is the Candida bacteria, and when an overgrowth occurs on the skin and infection called candidiasis will occur. Candidiasis of the skin causes a red, itchy rash that can spread to many areas of the body. This is commonly referred to as a yeast infection skin rash because it typically begins in moist areas on the body, folds of the skin, and in hot weather.

While a small amount of Candida naturally live on the skin, a dangerous infection can occur when these fungal bacteria begins to multiply rapidly. Warm weather, tight clothing, poor hygiene, a weakened immune system, and incomplete drying of damp or wet skin (such as from sweat) can all cause the rapid growth and spread of Candida fungi. Summer months are notorious for bringing Candidiasis to the surface because the bacteria thrive in warm, moist areas of the skin.

Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta is pleased to provide exceptional care to patients who suffer from yeast infection skin rash. Because Candida is fungal bacteria that quickly grows and spreads, it is essential that a proper diagnosis is made so that effective treatment can begin. Patients of all ages, young and old, can experience debilitating effects from this skin rash. If you have a rash that is itchy and spreads rapidly, please contact Medical Dermatology Specialists today. Dr. Jamie Weisman and her entire staff are dedicated to taking an individualized approach to every patient’s needs, and we will do what it takes to help you find the relief that you deserve.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
