Ringworm Infection Health Feed

I am suffering from ringworm disease from one year. Can you tell the cure to correct this disease?

The condition most often occurs when people wear tight-fitting clothing that traps in moisture. Wash the affected skin two to three times a day. Keep the affected area dry. Avoid excess affected skin irritation by wearing 100% cotton underwear. Avoid fabric softeners, bleaches, or harsh laundry detergents. Wash your workout clothes, underwear, socks, and towels after each use. Keep your affected area, inner thighs, and buttocks clean and dry, especially after you exercise and shower. After showering or bathing, dry the irritated affected area by gently patting it with a towel. Be sure to dry your skin thoroughly. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in two cups of warm water. Wash the infected area with this solution and allow it to dry on its own. Another option is to apply a mixture of equal parts of white vinegar and coconut oil on the affected skin. Like hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol can help kill off the fungus that's on the surface level of the skin. You can apply it directly to the affected area listerine: it has antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial properties, which help treat skin problem here are some tips to help you manage the infection: avoid using oily skin products. Reduce your exposure to the sun. Exposure to the sun may trigger or worsen an episode, and a tan makes the rash more visible. Do not wear tight clothing. Wear breathable fabrics, such as cotton, to decrease sweating.

Hi Sir, Can coconut oil be used to cure tinea corporis in groin area in rainy season?

Dear Lybrate-user, Coconut oli will not cure tinea corporis. It will help you in decreasing the intensity of itching. For the proper treatment of tinea you can take homeopathic medicines as they are highly effective and successful in its treatment. Coconut oil only decreases the itching it will not cure the disease. Since it is contagious you need to maintain the basic hygiene and you will have to wash your clothes in separate bucket. Use different towels and keep the infected area dry since it is a fungal infection so you will have to keep the area moisture free as fungus grows rapidly in moist area. You can take homeopathic treatment for the cure. For more info contact me.

Ringworm or Tinea infections, are a fungal skin disease. A family of fungi called dermatophytes causes these infections which might occur anywhere on the body, typically the arms, legs, neck, groin, scalp, hair, nails or beard. The fungi survive on the dead skin cells or keratin and rarely invade the deeper membranes and tissues.

I am suffering to ringworm for a month, it reduces and then reoccurs. Using luliconazole cream. What should I do?

Dear lybrate-user ji, ringworm is a skin infection caused by a fungus that lives on dead tissues, such as the skin, hair, and nails, that causes itching and discoloration. When it appears anywhere else on the body, the infection is just called ringworm. Ringworm require proper treatment and supervision, as it is contagious and may spread whole body. A general or normal ointment may not assure/cure it completely, though for time being it disappears it appears in another part of body. Proper internal medication is must. Basic hygiene can help treat and prevent ringworm as well. Keeping the skin clean and dry can help avoid infection. Homeopathy has got complete cure for these kinds of complaints by constitutional treatment and holistic approach. It naturally cures by improving the immunity of your body and stops the recurrence naturally. I suggest you to take an appointment for consultation so that detail case can be discussed and rule out the cause and proceed further for treatment. You can consult online. Thank you.
