The fungus breed on close and dam places. It feeds on dead skin cells. You may have fungal infection on any part of body like foot, toes, mouth, vagina, genitals. Rash, athlete’s foot, jock itch, yeast infection is some of the fungal infections. There are different remedies for each infection. As you have not mentioned on which part of body you have fungal infection I can suggest common remedies –

Red itching rash is common in all types of infections. In athlete’s foot you get dryness and blisters on toes, red rash. Jock itch is affected in genital parts. Itchy red bumps are the symptoms. The symptoms of yeast infection are white discharge from vagina, urge to urinate, red itchy rash around infected area.

Common precaution for skin fungus:

  • Keep the area very clean.
  • Wash the area and pat it dry.
  • Bathing daily is recommended.
  • Keep your body dry. As you are staying in warm weather avoid using tight shoes and tight fitting undergarments.
  • Wear cotton undergarments.
    You can apply aloe vera gel on the affected area. It will give relief.
  • Application of tea tree oil is also helpful.
  • You can add few drops of leucatin in the bath water.
  • Avoid the use of powder or cream on the area. Precaution is the best solution on such kind of infections.
