I had terrible candida rash/sores on my back recently. It didn't burn, but itched like nothing I have ever felt before! Using Oil of Oregano directly on the rash caused it to burn. I would apply coconut oil on first then pat oil of oregano on top of that. The oil of oregano was the only thing that eased the itching. It took a long time to heal, actually still not totally healed, but the coconut oil and oregano oil really helped. You could maybe just mix a few drops oregano oil into some coconut oil before applying. Good Luck!
