Symptoms of Sweat Rash

Sweat rash is a common fungal yeast infection that occurs between the folds of your skin as a result of humidity, friction and a lack of ventilation. It usually shows up as a red rash on your skin. Unfortunately, everyday activities such as a sweaty session at the gym or running for the bus can all be a trigger for this skin irritation. It may feel embarrassing and uncomfortable, however if you use the appropriate treatment promptly it can quickly clear up.

Most people experience symptoms such as:

  • Red rash with scaling on the periphery
  • Stinging skin
  • Burning skin
  • Broken skin (in the space between fingers or toes)
  • Blisters
  • Foul-smelling odor
