Herbal Remedies for Fungal Infections
Fungal infections are caused by microscopic organisms that can live on the dead cells of the hair, nails, and outer skin layers. Fungal infections are divided into mold-like fungi (dermatophytes), which includes ringworm and athlete's foot, or yeast infections, including diaper rash and candidiasis. Susceptibility to fungal infection is increased by poor hygiene, prolonged moist skin, and minor skin or nail injuries, since fungi thrive in warm, moist areas.
Fungal infections of the skin or nails can be treated with antifungal herbs. Immune stimulants can also be helpful.
