I broke out in a rash on several places on my body. A doctor diagnosed one area as contact dermatitis and another area as a yeast infection. After 2 weeks the rash is gone for the most part but I am still itching. It is worst after sleeping. I will awake itching and itch for some time after waking but eventually it tapers off.
