Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Desonide is a corticosteroid cream and is used in patients who are suffering from eczema or dermatitis resulting in itching etc. However, for yeast infection this is not a good cream if used alone. It has to be used along with anti-fungal cream. Please do consult a dermatologist as it is not possible to make an online diagnosis.
I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
