Hi friends, today i will be talking about fungal infections. fungal infections are also known by their symptoms of itching and redness. nowadays the weather is hot and the rains have also begun. people usually suffer from fungal infections in this kind of weather today i will be speaking about fungal infections that happen on our body and also specifically about fungal

Infections in the groin area. the fungal infection that occurs on the body is known as tinea corporis and the fungal infection occurring in our groin area is called tinea cruris. we should know that fungus spreads through contact with each other. that is why this is usually transmitted between family members or school kids acquire it through contact with each other

When they play, walk, hold hands etc with each other how can this infection be transmitted between family members? bedsheets etc also carry fungal spores and can infect others if they use these items. similarly, if you have dogs or cats in the house, then they are often prone to getting fungal infections in the monsoons. and if we come into contact with their infected

Skin, then we can also pick it up from them. besides this, if you go to public swimming pools, then their mats towels etc which may have been used by a person suffering from fungal infections another place from where people often pick up fungal infections if their instruments have not been cleaned properly then you can pick up fungal infections through these agents.

The most common fungal infection that people suffer from in this condition, round, red dry patches develop on the skin these patches appear as light marks on people with dark skin whereas those who have fair skin exhibit darker patches. another type of fungal infection that happens on our skin is called ringworm. it is called so because it has a red, inflamed border

So this infection gives the appearance of “rings” on the skin, hence it is called ringworm. ringworm either occurs in 2-3 isolated patches on the skin. or these patches are found all over the body, which also causes a lot of itchiness. what do fungal infections in the groin area look like? now i will talk about the fungal infection which occurs in the groin area.

If men wear tight clothing and they also tend to sweat a lot in their groin area then they are prone to getting this fungal infection, especially in the monsoon season. the worst thing about this infection is that it itches a lot. which topical creams can be used to treat fungal infections? now i will speak about the treatment of fungal infections which occur in the

Groin and elsewhere in the body. for treating these infections, topical creams are usually used. such as clotrimazole cream, miconazole cream & terbinafine cream. you can apply these creams in the following way – after having a bath in the morning you should apply these creams properly on all the affected areas. there is no need to wash off the creams at night,

But you should apply them once again before sleeping. these anti-fungal creams must be used twice a day for atleast 2 weeks. and if necessary, then they should be applied for 3-4 weeks. usually when people notice an improvement in their condition after 5-6 days and then the fungal infection returns as soon as the effect of the cream decreases after a few days. the fungal

Infection that happens in the groin area and to reduce this itching, you can mix a small amount of 1% hydrocortisone cream in your anti-fungal cream you should immediately discontinue the use of hydrocortisone cream. because hydrocortisone is a steroid and you should never use steroids on your skin for extended periods. steroids cause the skin to become thin whereby they

Can enter your blood stream. in order to completely heal your fungal infection, besides applying creams thereafter apply the 2% ketoconazole lotion all over your body like soap. leave it on for 5 minutes, and then wash it off with lukewarm water. the advantage of this is that even if there are small fungal infections on the skin which you have missed then this lotion

Reaches those areas and helps to completely rid the skin of all fungal infections. 2% ketoconazole lotion should be used twice daily for atleast 2 weeks. thereafter you should use this lotion twice a week for 2 weeks. and finally, you must use ketoconazole lotion once a week for 3 months. this will ensure that the fungal infection does not return and give you trouble.

Besides this, those who are suffering from fungal infection in the groin area or who have repeated bouts of fungal infections on the body should thoroughly dust their entire body with 1% clotrimazole powder after having a bath. if after all this, you are still suffering from fungal infections. then you will have to take oral medicines to combat it. and get a prescription

From them and then follow the prescribed course of medicines. oral medicines include griseofulvin, terbinafine, or fluconazole tablets. the exact dosage, as well as duration of medication will be told to you by your doctor. friends, if you suffer from repeated bouts of fungal or bacterial infections then you must go to the hospital and have a thorough check up done.

There are many illnesses which severely weaken the body’s natural immunity. besides this, people who have taken long courses of anti-biotics similarly, those who have undergone kidney, liver, heart transplants etc are given immunosuppressant drugs, which weaken their body’s capacity to fight illnesses. such people are very prone to fungal and bacterial infections.

Then please go to the hospital and have a thorough check-up done. please keep watching my videos and comment below if you have any questions.
