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)
- Foul-smelling odor
