Barber's itch And Homeopathy!

Barber's itch and homeopathy: 

Introduction: 
Barber’s itch is a fungal skin condition that is sometimes classified as beard ringworm. 
The infection, also known as tinea barbae. 
It normally appears in adult males and can affect the bearded area of the face, including the chin, neck and upper lip.

Causes: 
▶barber’s itch is highly contagious can be spread from person to person through direct or indirect contact with an affected person. 
▶barber's itch is caused by a Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. 
▶the bacterial invasion mostly occurs when you have damaged hair follicles. ▶damaged hair follicles can be caused by the following: 
▶ excessive shaving or tight clothing, 
▶ excessive sweating. 
Direct contact: if you are directly interacting with people or animals that have fungal infections, then you are running a high risk of catching the infection yourself. The skin on skin contact will cause the disease to choose you as its new host, making it crucial that you avoid potential contagions. 

Indirect contact: be careful who you share your razors with. Fungal infections can live on in everyday objects like razors, face cloths and clothing so it might pay to be a bit more frugal about who you share your belongings with. 
▶stress: stress can exhaust your immune system, making you more vulnerable to contracting a fungal infection like barber’s itch.

Symptoms: 
▶hair loss
▶ringworm rashes
▶itching 
▶dry flaky skin
▶inflammation
▶blistering
▶discoloration of the skin. 
▶stress

Management: 
▶maintain hygiene 
▶avoid stress
▶use new blades nd razor for shaving
▶do not come in contact of affected persons directly.

Tips Apple cider vinegar has demonstrated antifungal properties against Candida, another fungal infection. To treat ringworm with apple cider vinegar, soak a cotton wool pad in the undiluted vinegar and wipe it on the affected area. Repeat up to 3 times daily.

Apple cider vinegar helps kill the fungus causing the infection. Plus, its mild acidic nature helps prevent the infection from spreading and promotes a speedy recovery. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in one cup of warm water and drink it twice daily.

Fungal infections on skin are the most common of all and are effectively treated with homeopathy. I advise you to stop allopathic treatment as it gives temporary results only with lots of side effects, it will recur once you stop medicines and homeopathic treatment cures it from roots without side effects. no chance of recurrence. you can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.
