Cure Of Fungal Infection With Homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Cure Of Fungal Infection With Homoeopathy

Redness, itching, rashes or burning of skin is an indication of a fungal infection. Caused by different types of fungi, including yeasts, fungal infections can affect any part of the body and people of any age. The most common sites, however, are the feet, head, nails and groin. Homeopathy provides a complete and holistic cure for fungal infections, striking at the root of the problem. The remedies are sourced from natural substances, so there is zero possibility of side-effects in homeopathic treatment.


 

Fungal infection of the foot is known as ‘athlete’s foot’. It usually results in redness, itching and burning, especially between the toes and the sides of the foot. The fungus usually grows in a warm and moist environment such as shoes, socks and swimming pools. Fungal infection affecting the groin, thighs and genitals is known as ‘jock itch’. The fungus thrives in moist areas of the body. ‘jock itch’ mostly occurs in summer or in warm, wet climates. The symptoms are a red, itchy rash, ring-shaped, with cracked skin.


 

Another common fungal infection, known in medical terminology as ‘onchomycosis’, affects the nails of the hand and the feet. The fungal infection starts at the edge of the nails and leads to discoloration of nails. The nails of the feet and hands get crippled and the pain can be severe.


 

Fungal infection of the scalp results in patches appearing on the scalp. It is more common among children. Scaly, round and itchy patches appear on the scalp.


 

‘Candidiasis’ or ‘Thrush’ is another common fungal infection. It mostly affects the mouth, skin and the vagina. Thrush infection appears as small white patches, which turn red on rubbing. There is intense itching and a white discharge in vaginal thrush.


 

Fungal infection of the body or the skin causes red, ring-shaped rashes on arms, legs or the face. Most of these fungal infections are contagious and spread by coming in contact with the infected person.


 

Homeopathic treatment for fungal infections:

Homeopathy offers a very beneficial and effective mode of treatment that boosts the body’s healing processes to fight and eradicate fungal infection. Unlike conventional treatment, the natural homeopathic remedies do not suppress fungal infection; these rather work to root out the underlying cause of fungal infections. The homeopathic treatment, thus, provides a permanent cure by uprooting the cause of the infection.


 

Best homeopathic medicines for fungal infection:

The best natural homeopathic medicines for fungal infection are thuja, sepia and graphites. Thuja is of great help in treating fungal infection on dry and very sensitive skin. Sepia is the best homeopathic remedy for fungal infection appearing every spring season. Graphites is a very beneficial homeopathic medicine for treating recurrent episodes of fungal infection, especially ‘jock itch’.


 

Best homeopathic medicines for fungal infection on feet (athlete’s foot)

The top homeopathic medicines for fungal infection on the feet (athlete’s foot) are petroleum and silicea.


 

Best homeopathic remedies for fungal infection in nails

The top natural homeopathic medicines for fungal infection in the nails (tinea unguium) are antimonium crudum and graphites. Antimonium crudum is the best homeopathic remedy for discolored nails, growing out of shape. The skin beneath the nails is painfully sensitive. Graphites is a very beneficial homeopathic medicine when fungal infection results in nails getting thick and crippled, with severe pain and soreness.


 

Top homeopathic medicines for fungal infection of scalp

The best natural homeopathic medicines for fungal infection of the scalp (tinea capitis) are thuja and kali sulphuricum.


 

Best homeopathic medicines for fungal infection in mouth and genitals

The top natural homeopathic remedies for fungal infection caused by candida yeast (candidiasis or thrush) are borax and helonias. Borax is of great help for treatment of white lesions or patches of fungus in the mouth. Thrush with intense itching on the genitals is best treated with homeopathic medicine helonias. The genital parts get red, hot and swollen with itching, and helonias is the top natural remedy.


 

Best homeopathic medicines for fungal infection on skin

The top homeopathic medicines for fungal infection on the skin (tinea corporis) are thuja, tellurinum and sepia.


 

Do not do self medication because every patient is different.

Consult the doctor for right selection of the medicine

Hair dye may cause reaction because of several chemicals, PPD being the most common culprit. You should avoid dye for a fortnight and then may use a ppd free dye. Several brands like vegetal and altris HD are available.

Problems with beard may be genetical. Do not panic. Every coin has two sides, not having thick beard is also beneficial. But if you r so desperate for beard than consult hair transplant surgeon he can help. Local application of minoxidil may help but it has side affects like it reduces blood pressuren all. I'll suggest you do not take tension be happy do yoga n pranayam daily eat healthy food.

Being a rich source of vitamin A and papain, papaya works effectively in lightening complexion and correcting uneven skin tone. The enzyme papain acts as a natural exfoliator that removes dead cells from the skin and promotes the regeneration of new cells that help in fading dark spots and hyperpigmentation. In addition, it also functions as an effective anti-aging agent that helps in tightening sagging skin and removing wrinkles and fine lines. Honey works wonders for the skin. It is loaded with antioxidants that protect the skin from sun damage and rejuvenates skin by removing dead skin cells. In addition, it increases the moisture retention capacity of the skin to give it a youthful, supple and radiant appearance.
