Natural Remedies for Skin Fungus

Natural Remedies for Skin Fungus

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

The fungus can enter and weaken the immune system through breathing or skin cracks. The familiar "itching" in groin, feet, or other body part, is a typical symptom. Once inside the body, it can travel anywhere especially if your immune system is depressed.

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 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 frequently. Avoid sneakers for some time. Spread aloe for dry skin, it can help improve the infection and its treatment.

Ringworm of the scalp: Also known as tinea capitis, there may be thickening of the scalp and even hair loss, never share combs, brushes, hats or caps to prevent this infection. A popular choice is boiling cloves in one liter of water, and washing our scalp, 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 keep your hands wet frequently. A popular choice is to use shortening, because it is an excellent moisturizing, covering and blocking the introduction of water. Use very little and rub well so you will not feel greasy hands. You can also use cocoa butter, lanolin and light mineral oil.

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

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

Soak in salt

To stop a fungal infection that starts showing its symptoms anywhere in the body is advisable to take a salt bath. To prepare 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 fight fungus on the skin, avoids excessive sweating, and also relieves the skin affected by the fungus.

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
