Default Recurring yeasty rash

I posted early in the winter about this beautiful rash Juno was sporting on her abdomen:

I'm just assuming it's a yeast infection.

We got it cleared up the first time with antibiotics, an anti-inflammatory, and Gentaved spray. It went away but then a few weeks later came back, and my friend who's dog always has skin infections, said that I could use the Gentaved spray on it again. So I did. And it went away. And then it came back... lather, rinse, repeat a hundred times.

The rash is back at the moment and I'm bringing her to work with me tomorrow to have it looked at. But what are they going to do? Send me home with more antibiotics? That would be fine and dandy but I know it's just going to come back... I don't want to just keep treating the symptom and pumping her full of antibiotics, I want to know WHY this stupid thing keeps resurfacing and what I can do to get rid of it for good.

Ideally I would put her on raw and see what happens but that's not going to happen while I still live at home. My parents allow the cat to be on raw because he'd pretty much be dead otherwise, but this rash is not going to kill Juno lol. Although coincidentally, the first time this rash showed up was a couple weeks after she was taken off raw and put back on kibble.

It's just.... argh. It looks gross and ouchy and she's noticeably annoyed by it too. Maybe I will have to invest in some Vetericyn because I'd feel better spraying that on her all the time instead of using an antibiotic/steroid spray.

Thoughts? Advice?
