I’m sorry, I’m not familiar with Intertrigo…

I used to have what seemingly was a fungal infection of my skin– what you have sounds similar. I got rid of it permanently by applying a mixture of cider vinegar and lavender essential oil to the problem spots each day– maybe a tablespoon of vinegar, a little water, and a few drops of lavender oil. I don’t know how the vinegar would go with having eczema, but the lavender oil would probably help that. Also, have you tried applying tea tree essential oil? That is an amazing antifungal and skin healing remedy.

Intertrigo may be helped by taking the supplement P5P. P5P is the active form of vitamin B6.

  • Intertrigo

Intertrigo describes <u>the rash or inflammation that occurs where the body folds</u>. Areas such as, under the arms, under the breast and other places are affected. Vitamin B6 deficiencies may lead to this condition. More research is needed to prove this conclusively.

Waxelene is helping me
It is a pertroulum Jelly (Vasalene) alternative made with Organic Soy Oil, Beeswax, Natural Vitamin E oil and Organic Rosmary Oil waxelene.

I am also going to try cornstarch for body powder and using suphur soap which were recommend for rashes by my facialist.

I do not test low for B6 but am taking P5P anyway to see if it helps(Cardio Ion Test includes an Organic Acids test athat has a marker for B6 that test is by  by Genova Diagnoistics Lab.
