Topical Preparations

Fungal conditions that benefit from external applications include athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch, nail fungi, and various yeasts and molds that tend to favor warm, moist places that do not have much exposure to ambient air. This can include underarms and the inside of the elbows and back of the knees as well as places that make contact with elastic bands or other tight fitting garments. Fungal infections can be itchy, sometimes burning, or slimmy. They can also cause skin to flake off or smell bad. Children are particularly susceptible to fungal ear infections because studies show that pillows are often home to aspergillus. Washing bedding frequently and using pillow cases that wick away moisture will reduce some of the risk of infection.
