Natural Remedies for Fungal Infections in the Skin

Fungal infections can include candidiasis, urinary tract infections, and skin infections known as athlete foot and fungus on the hands, to name a few. Even if, for most people, they are harmless, they may become fatal for a person whose immune system is weak: Particularly cancer patients with burns, who have undergone organ transplants, diabetic patients who are taking antibiotics in the long term, and those with AIDS.

Fungus can enter and weaken the immune system through breathing or skin cracks. The familiar "itching" in the groin, feet or other parts of the body is a typical symptom. Once inside the body, it can travel anywhere, especially if your immune system is weaker than normal.

Natural Remedies

For various fungal infections, whether in the skin, hair, nails or other body parts, there are some natural remedies that can help us to combat them.

Athlete's foot: Initially appears as redness and peeling of the skin, which then develops into blisters and scabs and constant oozing. To prevent and treat it, use clean white cotton socks and change them frequently. Avoid sneakers for some time. Spread aloe vera gel for dry skin on it daily, which can help improve the infection and eventually treat it.

Ringworm of the scalp: Also known as tinea capitis, there may be thickening of the scalp and even hair loss, so never share combs, brushes, hats or caps to prevent this infection. A popular choice is boiling cloves in one litre of water and washing our scalp with this remedy at least 3 times a day.

Cracked hands: If your hands are cracked and appear broken, you probably have a fungal infection, especially if you wash or get your hands wet frequently. A popular choice is to use vegetable butter because it is an excellent moisturiser, covering and blocking the introduction of water. Use a little amount and rub well so you will not have greasy hands. You can also use cocoa butter, lanolin and light mineral oil as alternatives to vegetable butter.

At night, you can mix a few drops of glycerin with lemon essential oil and rub it into the skin before sleep. This ointment moisturises and heals skin while you sleep.

Crotch itch: Also known as tinea cruris, is a fungal infection that occurs in the pubic region, worsened by friction and moisture. Usually, it does not spread beyond the groin region and affects more men than women. The problem should be treated by avoiding the factors that generate it, such as friction and moisture. It is therefore recommended in these cases to use boxer type (wide leg) underwear. Generally, applying talc and switching to this kind of underwear can be sufficient to treat this type of fungal infection.

Salt Soaks

To stop a fungal infection that starts showing its symptoms anywhere in the body, it is generally advisable to take a salt bath. To prepare one you can follow the instructions below:

Fill the tub with warm water and add a cup of salt. You must take this bath for 15 minutes at least twice a day. Salt water helps to fight fungus infection on the skin, combats excessive sweating and also relieves skin affected by the fungal irritations.

These are some really good tips and advice - I was not aware that a salt bath could help so much with fungal infections. At the beginning of the article you mention candidiasis - do you have any advice or natural remedies for combatting this commonly occurring fungal infection in women? Thanks again for the information.

I used to have a fungal infection on my hand right around my knuckles, and it kept coming back, manifesting as an itchy dry spot on my skin! I don't know how i finally got rid of it, but the pharmaceuticals that I used only made it worse (now I know better than to use them). I did start eating a lot more fruits and vegetables...

I think caught a fungus on my leg when I went to the pool and this is very disguistuing, hopefully it just happened yesterday and tomorrow I'm going to the doctor, if it is a fungal infection, which I'm almost sure it is, then I'm going to try these remedies instead of taking pills and that kind of stuff so thank you very much for sharing it
