Hey, anything's worth a shot, and I wasn't going to sit around suffering for the next 4 months while I tried one thing at a time! : )
After reading just about everything I could get my hands on online, I did find a few doc sites that recommended an anti-fungal cream. Some of those "ask the doctor" kind of sites. Then it started making more sense.
