We all have fungi present inside our bodies and on the skin. Generally, this fungi is harmless, but if an imbalance or increase of this naturally occurring fungi occurs, it can bypass our natural resistance barriers and establish an infection.

The two most common types of fungal skin infections are yeast infections and dermatophyte infections. Fungal sweat rash (candidal intertrigo), thrush and oral thrush (oral candidiasis) are types of yeast infection, whereas athlete's foot (tinea pedis), jock itch (tinea cruris) and fungal nail infection (tinea unguium) are all types of dermatophyte infection.

The symptoms of a fungal infection of the skin can be unpleasant, but thankfully most instances can be treated quickly and effectively.

Antifungal products containing clotrimazole, miconazole, zinc undecenoate, terbinafine and tolnaftate are particularly effective against fungal skin infections.

For natural antifungal treatments, try the Australian Tea Tree or neem ranges.
