This is the 3 time in 2 months I am to go to the DR complaining about a yeast infection. This time I believe it is in my breasts, mouth and on my skin. I itch sooo bad on my scalp, face, feet, shoulders/arms, chest. I have small (1cm or so) spots on my face, scalp, shoulders and back that are dry, scaly, and extremely itchy. Is there a connection to RA treatment and systemic, repeated yeast infections?
