Are you looking for skin yeast infection home remedies?
Did you know that candida can cause a rash?
Many people experience a yeast rash on their skin after a course of antibiotics since they are made of mold. Antibiotics do a great job of killing off bacteria but they leave you vulnerable for candida overgrowth.
I recently had to take a course of antibiotics for an E-coli infection. It left me with a nasty yeast infection that spread to a rash in just a day. My husband also got the rash on his neck and a few other places because…well, we are close.
Although the rash was itchy, it also burned. We wanted this gone so we were on the hunt for skin yeast infection home remedies.
Signs of a skin yeast infection
- Cracks in the corner of your lips
- Red bumps around your mouth
- Red bumps around warm areas like armpits, neck folds, and groin
- White patches in your mouth
- Itchy rash that burns around your hairline
- Red sore rash in the groin area
- Itchy rash on feet
Yeast infection on the skin can grow after
- A course of antibiotics
- After a sickness or lowered immune system
- After a bad vaginal infection
- A diet high in sugar
- Systemic candida overgrowth in the gut
Candida and yeast love to eat sugar and carbs. If you stop eating carbs and sugar the yeast will eventually die off. This process takes a while and if you have an itchy yeast infection rash, you want relief quickly.
Skin Yeast Infection Home Remedies
Coconut Oil and Tea Tree Combo
This happens to be my favorite home remedy for any candida rash on the skin. Since both coconut and tea tree are antifungal it does a nice job of drying up candida rashes and still caring for your skin. I mix a few drops of tea tree oil in a tablespoon of coconut oil and apply to all areas with the rash. We personally used this one with good success.
Apple Cider Vinegar
This is a great antifungal but could potentially burn if you have been scratching your rash and it has open skin or blisters. Apple cider vinegar can be taken internally as well as applying it right to the rash to clear it up quickly. I know apple cider vinegar works but my husband can’t stand the smell so we didn’t use it this time.
Oil of Oregano
Yeast absolutely hates oil of oregano so this essential oil works amazingly well but it will burn your skin if it’s not diluted. You can dilute oil of oregano oil using any carrier oil or just plain coconut oil. I have used oil of oregano capsules to help treat candida overgrowth in the gut many times. If you have yeast on the outside, you better bet it’s on the inside too.
This will kill off bacteria and yeast on contact but you don’t want to use it over large amounts of skin and never internally. It would be great for a small patch on the skin or to rinse your feet off with it.

Killing yeast from the inside out
If you have yeast growing on your skin, it’s almost always growing on the inside as well. It doesn’t take long for the yeast to overgrow in the gut. Candida overgrowth takes over after a course of antibiotics, after eating sugars or with a weakened immune system.
If you want to get rid of candida you must have a plan. We personally recommend the Ultimate Candida Diet Program as it lays out a step by step guide to killing yeast and candida with tons of recipes to choose from.
