Recurrence is common and may be reduced by intermittent application of topical anti-fungal agents like tea tree oil or selenium sulfide
It is prevalant in hot humid climates and in people who sweat allot, because the yeast grows in those conditions. The yeast is normally on our skin, then when it gets these conditions it can grow. There is no measurement of how many times you would have them or for how long.
