Those nooks and Crannies



Recommended Posts

Ok this topic is mostly for the ladies but I suppose the guys may have this issue as well. I live in sunny HUMID Florida. I seem to be struggling with constant moisture under the boobs, and in the groin area, resulting in rash/fungus/yeast....whatever you want to call it. I am the Queen of Gold Bond powder but it is not always enough. What is anyone else using that helps with this?

I clean the areas under the breasts with Noxema and it helps get rid of the yeast and then I use, and I swear this is the REAL name of the product, "Monkey Butt Powder" - it's a powder like runners use to avoid friction when they run

I work for a direct sales company that has an awesome product for this! It's a non talc lotion that dries like a powder and lasts for hours! Let me know if you're interested! Not sure if I'm allowed to share specifics here :-)

Zzorb available at Walgreens, great for any fungus related issue. If you can’t find the regular blue and white container get the one for athlete’s foot - same ingredients. Good Luck

A dermatologist told me to spray vinegar on a paper towel, fold it up and place on area and let sit for 15 minutes. Works like a charm and CHEAP!

I use feminine wash (like shower gel) under my tummy fold, behind my knees and all the places that hold odor and grow yeast/fungus. I've even had success with the kind I bought from Dollar Tree!

      A week and a day since surgery. Last night was the first night I got actually sleep, clocking in 7 hours. Oddly enough it's left me tired all day, but I didn't nap.
      2 days ago my gas pains subsided (woohoo!)
      I have aches and pains and of course sharp little pains around all the incisions (6 + 1 where the drain was), and I can't take the tylenol with codeine because it makes me feel like I have vertigo.
      I have started the countdown mentally to my soft food stage starting on Monday. Looking forward to that, can't wait to see if eggs and cheese will still be my friends.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!
