Fungal infections are many and varied.
Fungus loves damp warm conditions, so will usually appear in parts of the body that provide this environment.
The following are all fungal infections:
- Thrush – in the genital and anal areas. Also called jock rash
- Paronychia – a fungal infection under the fingernail or toenail
- Ringworm – a fungal infection under the skin
- Athlete’s foot – also known as tinea, a fungal infection that affects the feet
An important part of any treatment is to keep the affected area dry and cool. Make sure you dry thoroughly every time the area becomes wet and, if appropriate, sprinkle with talc to help keep it dry.
FungReleaf can be applied to Ringworm, Paronychia and Athlete’s Foot.
Calendula Ointment can be applied to thrush.
From a dietary perspective, decrease sugar intake, as all fungus loves to feed on sugar, think of it as starving out a parasite rather than denying yourself sweets.
Probiotics are also recommended if you are suffering from thrush or candida.
