Candida Intertrigo

definition

Candida infection affecting the skin folds often complicates an intertrigo, especially in obese or immunodeficient individuals or in diabetics. It is characterized by non-indurated erythematous areas with fringed, irregular, scaly edges and subcorneal pustules that rupture, resulting in tiny erosions. Papular or pustular satellite lesions are classical. Soreness and itching may be intense.
