PREVENT IT! We’ve all encountered skin fungus at some
point in our lives, which is inevitable as fungi live almost everywhere. We have fungi that live normally on our skin,
but in controlled numbers so we don’t even know they exist. However, they sometimes they reproduce in
large numbers and cause athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch or yeast infections. They are not very dangerous but are very uncomfortable
and annoying. Here we’ll give you some reasons for getting
a skin fungus and some ways to prevent it. There are a lot of things that can cause fungal
infections, such as sharing clothes and personal care products with a person that already has
such an infection. People who are most at risk to get a fungal
infection are. People who sweat heavily (as the fungus grows
on moist places) People that have a low immune system People who work closely together with
other people that might get infected, such as doctors, nurses, students, etc. The fungus needs moisture in order to reproduce
and thrive, so it is logical that the parts where it is likely to happen are the armpits,
toes and feet, genital area and places where the skin creases. You can get fungal infections through contact
with an infected person or their skin cells, so always be careful when in public areas
such as swimming pools and locker rooms. Also, never use things in those areas such
as combs, towels, etc. As we previously mentioned, dark and moist
places are heaven for fungal growth. That’s why you always have to make sure
that your skin is clean and dry throughout the day. Pay particular attention to wearing clean
cotton underwear, keep your toes clean and dry and always dry out the skin under the
breasts. Having a low immune system means a higher
risk of getting a fungal infection. To boost your immune system, make sure that
you are on a proper diet. Consume lots of vegetables and fruits as well
as probiotic yogurt. The fungus also feeds on sugar, so make sure
you cut down on the carbs and turn to protein and healthy fats for energy. Also, make sure you’re well rested and hydrated. Fungal infections are highly transmissible. If you already have one, make sure that you
will prevent it by spreading by avoiding scratching the affected area. Keep your skin clean and dry all the time. Use clean towels to wipe your skin and wash
them regularly. For example, athlete’s foot affects the
toes and between them by causing prickly red skin, sometimes even on the soles of the feet. Jock itch, on the other hand, appears in the
groin area, typically with teen boys and adult males who play sports and spend a lot of time
in locker rooms. It is demonstrated by red scaly patches on
the skin that feel sore. Ringworm infection is manifested as a small
lifted red area, similar to a small blemish. It is prickly and becomes flaky very fast. It can appear in different parts of the body
except for the scalp, feet, and groin. Fungal infections are not life-threatening
and can be treated easily with antifungal creams and powders without prescription of
a doctor. However, it is highly advised that you seek
medical advice before you purchase or use anything, especially if you have a low immune
system or are suffering from diabetes.
