Natural skin Fungus Removal
Home Ask a question Health Advice
A lot of us suffer from fungal growth on the skin, typically in the back and the neck region of the body. While there are a lot of other places that fungal infections could occur in our body, the back and the neck are two of the most common areas. Tinea versicolor, a kind of fungal infection usually breaks out when you have low immunity and are present in an environment where it is moist and warm. Apart from the back and the neck, the folds of the skin are also other common areas where such fungus could grow and spread. This is because the folds of the skin are warm and moist and rub against each other, creating friction and optimal environmental conditions for the growth of fungus.
Fortunately, there are some natural remedies for fungus that can be used to treat fungal infections naturally. Since tinea versicolor can cause lightening of skin in patches, it is best to use natural remedies for fungus before they make your skin look blotchy. There are many home remedies for fungal infections which can be used to treat your condition naturally. There are ways to prevent this condition as well.
How to Treat them?
The best fungal skin infection treatment is to use a fungal infection ointment. These ointments are broad spectrum medications. Almost all anti-fungal remedies and medications can treat all the different fungal infections. If you do not want to use medications, try improving your overall hygiene. A daily shower can help you get rid of fungal infections as well as dead cells that promote the growth of fungus on your skin. Occasional exfoliation is also a great fungal infection treatment that can help you get rid of your symptoms.
If you are not too fond of prescription medications, you can get yourself some over the counter medications for removing fungus from your skin. These medications can be purchased from any pharmacy. Apply them on the affected areas on your neck and back twice a day. You may need to get someone to help you apply the ointment on your back as some of the areas may be hard to reach. This is also a popular fungal skin infection treatment.
Get yourself some anti-dandruff shampoo that contains selenium sulfide. Washing the affected areas of your skin with this shampoo can help you systematically reduce the symptoms till your skin is healthy once again.
How do I get rid of infections?
A balanced diet is a great way of dealing with common fungal infections. If you have been experiencing white-colored spots on your neck and back, you can begin with a diet that is high in fiber and fluids. This keeps your skin hydrated and prevents fungal infections from developing. Also cut down on caffeine, alcohol and sweets, which may increase the spread of fungus on your skin. The symptoms of fungal skin infection usually involve redness, rashes and itching of the affected skin and therefore soothing the skin is one of the primary objectives of treatment. Almost all common fungal infections have similar symptoms and can be treated with similar remedies and medications.

Here are a few home remedy treatments I found online:
* boil the skins of a half-dozen onions for 15 to 30 minutes in a quart of water. Let the liquid cool, then apply it liberally all over your body. (Save the peeled onions to use in cooking.)
* Make a strong tea of either rosemary or tansy by brewing 1 tablespoon of dried herb to 1 cup of water. Steep for at least 20 minutes, strain and cool. Wash the affected area with the herbal infusion as often as 3 times a day, most importantly at bedtime.
* To treat the rash from scabies apply generously to the affected area before bedtime
