Skin Growing Fungus?

Written by Emilie Smetak, Community blogger | Jun 12, 2012 12:58 PM

Most people are unaware that the human body creates one of the best breeding grounds for fungus. An even greater majority is surprised to discover that this type of skin infection is not as rare as it may sound.Skin fungus can look like a small patch of acne, while other times it turns bright red and resembles ringworm. Differing appearances are often spotted on the same body. To further complicate problems, the rash can be bright red one day and totally disappear the next. Because fungus can take on a wide variety of shapes and shades, this condition is often misdiagnosed, resulting in a never ending search for the right lotion, pill or other antibiotic. Yet despite the appearance or regularity, all types of skin fungus is one hundred percent curable through easy, safe measures, leaving you with  instant, life long results.

The first step needed to combat this skin infection is to go to either your family doctor or dermatologist and ask for Ketoconazole 2% shampoo. This product serves as both a shampoo and skin lotion. Before entering the shower, generously apply the shampoo onto the skin infected and surrounding areas. Leave it on for five minutes and then use the product like a regular shampoo. It is recommended you use this product every time you take a shower or at a minimum of two to three times per week. Once the product runs out, you do not need a refill and your skin infection is most likely entirely cleared up. That being said, it is important to follow these following steps to ensure that the condition does not return.

Fungus colonies are most successful in dark, moist areas, which is why this skin infection is most prevalent on the upper back and neck. When exerting sweat or taking a shower, the water is trapped behind either the hair or shirt, creating ideal breeding grounds. The best way to counteract this problem is to thoroughly dry your hair after taking a shower and wear it in a high bun when ever you are in the blazing heat or taking part in any physical activity. It is also important to change into a fresh T-shirt when ever the one you are currently wearing is even the slightest bit damp, so that the moisture is not in contact with your skin.

Although everyone hates to hear this, the truth of the matter is that fungus also thrives off of sugars. This means all the ice cream cones, candy bars and Slushies you are consuming are providing nutrients for the fungus. By limiting the amounts of sugar your body consumes, the fungus has less of a chance to survive. The easiest way to accomplish this task is by taming your sweet tooth with fruits, such as strawberries and cantaloupe—that is without sprinkled sugar, of course!

Many people are frustrated because they have experimented with countless antibiotics, only to find that the skin infection has reappeared a few months later. Yet in reality, this infection can be cured by altering a few daily health habits. Not only is this approach not exposing your body to any harmful side affects, which is always at risk when using antibiotics, but it also promises life long results. Real answers, real results. The solutions have been this easy all along.
