Brief medical history, I'm 37 years old female. With Fibrods & an Iron anemia deficency. Over the past 6 years I've had bouts with different types of fungal infections.

1 - Tinea Versacolor
2 - Ring worm
3 - Unknown brown scaly spots on skin folds one or 2 at a time, disappears after 2 & a half weeks untreated ( which are thought to also be fungal as well ( basically unknown ).
4 - Most current Jock Itch.

I basically want to know if anyone has any idea on why I am having recurrent bouts with these forms of fungal infections, when 6 years prior none of these problems existed. Could the fibroads & anemia play a part in the recurrent Fungal infections? HELP!! Any idea's??
