The mother of all external yeast infections!

Let me start by saying that I'm sure things could get worse. I hope they don't, and for those of you who have had more advanced cases than this, I am truly, truly sorry.

So about 2 weeks ago I started having itching and redness in the pubic hair of my mons (I keep it close trimmed). I figured it might be an external yeast infection, so I started using miconizole cream on it, and the itching went away completely.

The problem? I also have red, itchy, peeling skin in my armpits and between my toes. Unfortunately, the itching on the initial site only stays away for about 6-12hrs after cleaning and applying the cream. After that, it starts to come back. In short, it doesn't seem to be resolving, even after a week of treatment. 

So....questions: Are these sites of itching/redness/peeling all related - ie: all external yeast infections? If so, can I treat them all with the same thing (miconizole cream)? Should I try applying the cream more often or ask for a stronger percentage since the pubic site doesn't seem to be resolving? If all the sites are related, should I start thinking about boosting my immunity against yeast? I don't want to be spending the rest of my life slathering cream onto 34048084 sites on my body. :-( 

Thanks in advance - I already know the answer my doctor would give me, and it would be much less helpful than what I'll get here!
