Skin Fungal Infection Treatment
If you have ever experienced a mild skin rash or itchy skin, you may have a fungal infection, tinea. Additionally, fungal infections can be under the nails and hair and not just on skin. Weakened immune systems can create a more severe disease which is why it is important to get fungal infection treatment.
Easily spread from person to person, fungal infections are contagious. Therefore, avoid contact with anyone who has a fungal infection. For instance, sharing items can spread the fungal infection. Such as, sharing towels and hair combs can spread the infection. Even something as simple as walking barefoot on an infected floor or petting an animal with fungi on its fur can transmit fungal infections.
Four Types of Fungal Infections
Itchy, flaky skin between toes is athlete’s foot. Surprisingly, this is the fungal infection you can get when you walk barefoot on the floor. Topical anti-fungal creams are a common treatment for Athlete’s foot.
Without fungal infection treatment, an Athlete’s foot infection can spread to the toes. Nail fungus causes yellow discoloration and hardening of nails. In severe cases, the nail can entirely fall apart, unfortunately.
A brush is used to apply anti-fungal medications. Oral medicine can also be prescribed, as well.
Rashes in the groin area is commonly called jock itch. The rash has a noticeable red border with flaking. Despite the term “jock,” both men and women can get this fungal infection.
An anti-fungal cream is a treatment option. Stronger creams can work quicker and require a prescription.
Despite the name, ringworm is not a worm. It’s actually a fungal infection. Unfortunately, those most commonly affected are children in daycare and schools. Additional ways to contract this fungal infection include infected dogs and cats.
Ringworm is treated with an anti-fungal topical ointment. However, resistant ringworm may require a trip to the dermatologist. Dermatologists can prescribe higher potency creams or offer an anti-fungal oral medication.
