Get Rid of Fungal Infection and White Spots

Recently I noticed that I have some dark patches and small reddish rash around my armpit area.  This is quite common and had happened to me before. So when I went to see a doctor, he would normally prescribed anti-fungal cream and sometimes anti fungal pills to be taken orally as well. Normally fungal infection and white spots would appeared on my skin about once every 2 to 3 years. I think it is because I am staying in the tropical country and also I do exercise a lot. Whenever I go for my jog which is 3 times a week, I would sweat profusely and I was told to cool down first before taking a shower.  A Chinese physician told me that if I take a shower without cooling down after jogging, it would be bad for my health and skin.

Fungal infection and white spots can spread if it is untreated. Though it is not a deadly disease, it does bring about itchiness and discomfort to the sufferer. The doctor told me to apply the anti-fungal cream 2 times a day and not to use other people’s towels or wear their clothes. This is prevent the spread of fungal infection to others; or perhaps preventing myself from getting it from other people as well. So I applied the anti-fungal cream around my armpit area after taking a shower. I avoid all those anti-deodorant stick or lotion as the chemicals in these products may irritate my skin. However I do apply baby powder if I know that I need to do some manual work for the day; and baby powder would keep my skin dry.

Normally after one week of applying the anti-fungal cream, the rash on my skin would be less visible. The doctor advised me to keep applying the anti-fungal cream for another one week so as to get rid of it totally. The problem is that sometimes I do forget to apply especially when my skin is no longer itchy and that is wrong. So I would normally end up applying the anti-fungal cream for 3 weeks; just to make up for the time which I forgot to apply. I don’t know whether I am doing is right or wrong; but anyway so long as the rash or white spots are gone – I am fine with it.

My friend told me that the Tea Tree oil or (Melaleuca alternifolia) can also help to get rid of fungal infection on the skin. So far I have not tried it but I think it should work because I have also heard of it before. She had also given me some Aloe Vera and told me to apply it on my skin. Aloe Vera has a very cooling effect when I apply it on my skin; and besides I loved to drink Aloe Vera juice as well. I think personal hygiene is very important. I do not share my towel or clothes with anyone. I have to keep my bed and pillow clean and dry. I have to make sure I change my socks every day and keep my feet dry. So keeping fungal and white spots away does required discipline on my part on a daily basis.
