Infections caused by fungus are quite common and they can develop in different parts of the body like, lungs, toe nails, sinuses and vagina. Most of these fungal infections can commence on your skin or lungs. These fungal infections can easily be treated by the help of anti-fungal creams or supplements. But before you use any of these supplements or creams you should meet with your doctor and talk about the supplement procedures as well as other alternative methods and the risks that are involved with it.
As the fungal infection does not spread below the skin so, it is quite easy to treat. Ringworm, jock itch and athlete’s foot are a few common examples of fungal infections. Ringworm is a type of fungal infection that usually affects your nails as well as the skin and hair. Athlete’s foot is an infection which tends to affect the lower area of the foot along with your toenails. Whereas, jock itch mainly targets your upper thighs, groin and it can affect both females and males.
The most common anti-fungal supplements that are prescribed by the doctors include thyme, pau d’arco, turmeric, poke, yerba mansa, black walnut, burdock, echinacea, myrrh and paracress. Other supplements that can prove to be highly beneficial in treating fungal infections include zinc, acidophilus, vitamins C and A, garlic etc. However, many of these anti-fungal supplements still require some scientific research and studies in order to prove or show their effectiveness in treating and curing these fungal infections.
Pau d’arco is the type of supplement that can effectively reduce the fungal infection. According to many scientists, this supplement has anti-tumor, antiviral and anti-fungal properties. This particular supplement can protect your immune system especially when your body is trying to fight an infection, including any type of fungal infection. Also, this anti-fungal supplement can also help the body in fighting with other infections like ulcer, psoriasis, malaria and eczema. However, these anti-fungal supplements should be used under the supervision of an experienced doctor or a health care practitioner who has experience in dealing with anti-fungal supplements.
Candida albicans is another type of fungus that can rapidly spread inside our body. This particular type of infection can prove to be very dangerous because if it is not kept in check, it releases a series of toxins which can excessively damage our body tissues and it’s overgrowth can cause various other symptoms including, depression, anxiety, acne, digestive issues, brain fog, fatigue, mouth thrush, suppressed immunity, genital and vaginal issues, headaches and muscle aches etc.
Candida can form a parasite in our body long before these symptoms are visible or apparent and this parasite does internal damage by feeding off the sugars which are present in our body. In these types of circumstances, you need to avoid treating yourself on your own with the help of anti-fungal supplements. If you suffer from any of the above symptoms, it is advised that you seek help from your doctor at once.
