What Are Fungal Infections?
Fungal infections are very common and whilst they are not usually dangerous, they can be a serious discomfort and irritation. Fungi flourish in warm, moist environments, so infections can often be found in sweaty or damp areas such as the feet, groin, and folds of skin.
Fungal infections can also be spread through direct contacts, such as coming into contact with fungi on clothing or a person or animal.
Common Types Of Fungal Infections
Ringworm is a fungus that typically occurs on the torso and limbs. Ringworm that affects other areas of the body is known by different names, such as athlete’s foot and jock itch. The main indicator of ringworm is a ring-shaped rash that has slightly raised edges. Ringworm can spread quickly and is often itchy.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that affects the skin mainly between your toes. Athlete’s foot can cause itching, burning and a stinging sensation between your toes or on the soles of your feet. Untreated, it can escalate to cracked or blistered skin. It can also spread to nails, groin, or hands.
Jock itch is a fungal skin infection of the groin and thighs, most often found in men and adolescent boys. This infection may get more inflamed after exercise and can spread to the buttocks and even abdomen area.
Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the nails. It can affect both fingernails and toenails, although toenails are more common. Symptoms include nails that are discoloured to a yellow or brown colour and are brittle, break easily and thicker than usual.
How Does Dr Clare’s Anti Fungal Cream Help?
Dr Clare’s Anti Fungal Cream contains a number of carefully selected components that are all selected to help with the different symptoms of fungal infections. Some of these ingredients are listed below along with the benefits they can offer.
Calendula officinalis cream
Calendula can help to reduce pain and swelling in the skin and to treat poorly healing wounds and leg ulcers. The nourishing benefits of calendula offer both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to help protect your skin.
St. John's Wort, a traditional folk medicine, has been used for centuries for the treatment of wounds, abrasions, burns, sunburns and inflammatory skin disorders. It also offers many benefits through its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and astringent properties.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil contains a number of compounds, including terpinen-4-ol, that have been shown to kill certain bacteria, viruses and fungi. Terpinen-4-ol also appears to increase the activity of your white blood cells to help fight germs and other foreign invaders. These properties make tea tree oil a natural remedy for the treatment of fungal skin infections and to promote healing of the skin.
