Treating Sweat Rash

If you have sweat rash associated with Candida you should treat it with a topical (a drug placed directly on your skin) anti-fungal. If your skin infection is showing symptoms of inflammation (such as redness, itching, burning), you can use a cream that is anti-inflammatory as well.

Different products contain different active ingredients that will be appropriate for you depending on the severity of your symptoms:

  • Clotrimazole – an anti-fungal and an anti-bacterial
  • Hydrocortisone – a mild anti-inflammatory that treats inflamed sweat rash when combined with clotrimazole

Canesten has products with both of these active ingredients, along with different types of application such as a spray or a cream. Click here to learn more.

When should you see your doctor?

Visit your doctor if your symptoms persist. If your sweat rash is the result of being overweight and you are struggling to lose weight, you can seek advice from your doctor.

If you are pregnant or elderly, antifungal medication may not be suitable for you and you should make an appointment with your doctor to find out the best way to treat your sweat rash.
