Cutaneous Candida infections can be found in several areas, including the groin, the feet, and the ears. Skin-based Candida infections typical present with redness of the skin. At first, the color change can be very subtle, but over time the redness becomes more prominent.
Itchiness is another characteristic symptom of a Candida infection of the skin. The severity of the itchiness can range from mild to excruciating. It the skin is extremely itchy, there is a risk of breaking through the skin if you itch too vigorously. Keep your fingernails short to reduce the risk of damaging your skin. Breaking the surface of your skin due to scratching puts you at risk of developing a serious skin infection, so try and avoid that at all costs.
