Jock itch is a very common groin rash. Roughly half of jock itch is due to fungus. The remainder is caused by moisture, irritation, and bacterial overgrowth. In most cases, jock itch can be treated at home effectively. You can try the following remedies to get rid of the infection: 1.Apply over-the-counter antifungal cream, powder, or spray to the affected area - our best options include Lamisil, Lotrimin Ultra, and/or Naftin. These are more expensive, but they will get rid of jock itch faster. Prefer Lotrimin Ultra which contains Butenafine Hydrochloride over regular Lotrimin AF which just contains clotrimazole. Studies have shown Butenafine can be faster and more effective than clotrimazole. You can also purchase cheaper creams containing clotrimazole or miconazole. These will take a little longer to work, but they will effectively wipe out jock itch. 2.Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and warm water. 3.Dry the affected area thoroughly after bathing and exercise. 4.Change clothes and undergarments every day. 5.Wear loose cotton clothing. Avoid wearing any clothing that rubs or irritates your crotch. 6.Treat any other fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot. Doing this will decrease the risk for recurrence.

How do I get relief from itching fungal infection by home remedies please advise.
The tendency for fungus to recur in many adults, especially on the feet and toenails, is a genetic condition. Their skin cannot recognize the fungus as foreign and get rid of it. After having a fungus there for a while the body's immune system learns to live with the fungus and no longer tries to get rid of it. Steps to prevent fungal infection of the skin includes: - Wearing shower sandals in public showering areas, wearing shoes that allow the feet to breathe, and daily washing of the feet with soap and water. - Drying the feet thoroughly and using a quality foot powder can also help prevent fungal infection. - Change clothes -- especially underwear – everyday. - Keep feet clean, cool and dry. Change socks. Wear shoes that "breathe" like leather, rather than plastic. - Make sure shoes fit correctly and are not too tight. - Avoid walking barefoot, especially in bathrooms, locker rooms, gyms, on carpeting, and in public bathing areas. Wear slippers or stand on a towel or piece of paper. - Keep toenails short, cut straight across and avoid ingrown nails. Do not use the same clippers on abnormal nails and normal nails. - Family members and close personal contacts should treat any fungus infections they may have to avoid trading back and forth. - Discard old shoes, boots, slippers and sneakers. Do not share footwear with others. Medicattion: Tellurium 200/ twice daily and Sulphur 200/ once a day daily - take them for 2 weeks. Revert me back there after.

5 Effective Home Remedies To Treat Fungal Infection In Nails!

If you are experiencing symptoms such as swelling, inflammation, thickening, yellowing and crumbling of your nails, toenail fungus or onychomycosis is indicated. This is a very common problem, which is usually painless, unless the infection gets spread. The fungus thrives under certain conditions like abnormal levels of pH in the skin, a weak immune system, poor hygiene, diabetes and a continuous exposure to moist or damp environment. If not treated properly, toenail fungus can lead to cracking, splitting or total loss of your toenail. There are various ways of treating fungal infections in the nails. Some of them are as follows:

  1. Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil contains antiseptic and antifungal properties, which help in treating toenail fungus. You need to mix some drops of tea tree oil with coconut oil and olive oil. Using a piece of cotton, apply the mixture on your affected nail, keep it for 10 minutes and scrub off the nail with a toothbrush. For ideal results, you must repeat this process more than twice regularly.

  2. Baking Soda: Baking soda is a commonly used remedy for fungal infections in your nails. It also helps in neutralizing foot odor. Add baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and Epsom salt in hot water, add vinegar to the mixture and soak your affected nail in the solution. After this, wash your feet with water. Repeat the procedure twice a day for several weeks.

  3. White Vinegar: This is an ideal ingredient for the treatment of toenail fungus. It helps in restoring the pH balance of the skin and fights against infections. Add one part of white vinegar to warm water and soak your affected toenail in it for about 10 minutes. After this, you must wash it off. Carry out the process twice a day for effective results.

  4. Oil of Pregano: Oil of oregano is considered effective because of its antibacterial, antiviral, analgesic and antiseptic properties. It is an ideal way for treating fungal infections in your nails. Mix oregano oil with olive oil, apply the solution on your nails and leave it for over 30 minutes. Repeat the process thrice a day for good results.

  5. Listerine Mouthwash: Listerine mouthwash is another important home remedy for treating fungal infections in the nails. This mouthwash contains certain compounds along with alcohol, which have very strong antiseptic properties and help in eliminating harmful fungi and bacteria from your nails. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Male infection and home remedies

Male infection and home remedies
Male yeast infection causes are many, but mainly there are only three causes. The first is unprotected sex with a woman who has yeast infection, the second is prolonged use of antibiotics, which reduces the population of the friendly bacteria that control the population of these organisms, and the third is stress. Male yeast infection symptoms and causes are usually related to each other. A lot of people wonder can men get yeast infections or can men get yeast infections from a woman. In reality, men can get yeast infections too, though not as easily as women can get them. Male yeast infection treatment can be done with the help of home remedies. Just as in the case of women, men can also benefit greatly from home remedies, which act as male yeast infection treatment. These home remedies can offer a beneficial male yeast infection cure. Thus, male yeast infection symptoms can be treated with these useful home remedies for male yeast infection:

The first step to the treatment of these yeast infections is to inhibit the growth and the spread of yeast. To do this, stop the intake of sugar. To limit the intake of sugar in your diet, stay away from grains that contain gluten. Simple carbohydrates also increase the level of sugar in your blood and so, should be avoided when you have an infection. Also, the skin where the infection is spreading should be kept clean in order to restrict the spread of yeast. Treating male yeast infection should ideally start with inhibiting the growth of the microorganisms.
You can also get yeast infection relief by yogurt. The bacterium lactobacillus acidophilus contained in yogurt can help in improving the condition. This bacterium destroys the fungal strain, therefore improving the skin infection and effectively treating it completely. Yogurt has been considered an effective yeast infection remedy for both men and women. Yeast infection remedy by yogurt is promoted by both consuming yogurt and applying it on the affected parts of your body.
Male yeast infection treatment can also be done by vinegar. Washing the affected area of the skin with a diluted solution of vinegar can help in improving the condition. If you are planning on treating male yeast infections naturally, you should use apple cider vinegar instead of synthetic vinegar.
For yeast infection relief, garlic can also be used. Garlic has many therapeutic properties, and the compounds present in garlic can help control yeast to a large extent. As a yeast infection relief home remedy, consume two cloves of garlic with warm water everyday. This can help purify your blood and normalize the body ph, enabling your body to fight off the infection.
Colon cleansing is another effective method of controlling yeast infections in men. Male yeast infection grows in an acidic environment and therefore, cleansing of the colon can effectively purify your body and increase the ph. Colon cleansing can also help in bringing yeast infection relief from itching. Drinking plenty of water everyday ensures that your body is free of the toxins that build up in your body. This also ensures that your body never builds up acidity.
If your skin is getting affected due to yeast infections, taking warm sitz baths can have a beneficial effect. This is a bath in which you bathe in a sitting position and in which your hips and buttocks are immersed in water. This yeast infection remedy is a natural treatment for this contagious infection. Adding apple cider vinegar to your bathwater allows your condition to heal faster.
Coconut oil or coconut capsules are extremely beneficial for this condition. You can get a massage with coconut oil and continue applying the oil on your skin everyday. Other oils that can be beneficial in this condition include oregano oil, the oil of cinnamon bark, and tea tree oil. These essential oils should not be applied to the skin directly. Instead, make sure that you mix these oils with some carrier oil, usually a vegetable oil, before you apply it on your skin.
These home remedies for male yeast infections have no potential side effects. I.

Fungal infection is also called as jock itch. First of all please confirm the diagnosis, that it is actually fungal infection and not anything else. Considering that you have fungal infection, you need to take certain medications as well as make certain lifestyle changes. The lifestyle changes include keeping the area dry, not sharing towels with other people and reducing the intake of sweets. A number of antifungal medications are available for the treatment of fungal infection. These include oral as well as topical medications (creams). Itraconazole, luliconazole, terbinafine are some of the molecules which can be used. The dose depends on your severity as well as other factors like your age, pregnancy history if any, breastfeeding if any. A word of caution. Please do not use cheap over the counter medications which are easily available at your local chemist. These medicines contain steroids and are harmful in the long run. Please take a proper treatment after consulting your dermatologist.
