Fungal infection can be unpleasant and downright embarrassing.
Fungi live in moist environments around your home, pool, gym and backyard. But not all fungi is harmful. In fact, there are approximately 1.5 million different species of fungi on Earth, but only about 300 of those are known to make people sick (1).
While most people opt for expensive and invasive anti-fungal cream, there are more natural, better ways to heal your body.
They can cause skin peeling, redness, itching, burning, and sometimes blisters and sores.
They often occur on the feet, groin and armpits, which tend to be humid and warm enough to host the fungi.
5 Home Remedies To Bust Fungi For Good
Before applying any of these to your infection, test a bit of the substance on your arm to make sure you aren’t allergic to it. Also, make sure to keep the skin affected by the fungus as clean and dry as possible to stop the spread of the infection.
1. Coconut Oil
To use, dab coconut oil on the affected area 2-3 times a day until your infection clears up. It’s best to do it on dry clean skin.
To drink, dilute 1 tablespoon of ACV in a glass of warm water once a day.
For use on the skin, mix equal parts ACV and water, apply on the site of infection for 30 minutes and pat dry. It may sting a little, so you can apply coconut oil after the treatment to soothe your skin.
3. Tea Tree Oil
To use, dab oil with a clean q-tip after washing and drying the affected area. Repeat twice daily.
4. Cranberry Juice
It’s important to use organic, unsweetened juice, as sugar will only feed fungi and bad bacteria. You can safely drink it multiple times a day, using a stainless steel straw to protect your teeth.
To use, soak a few tea bags in water for 1o minutes or so. Remove and place in a plate, making sure not to remove excess water and keep in the refrigerator for half and hour or so. Place the chilled bags over affected area three times a day until the skin is healed.
You can also use tea in your bath water to heal large-surface infection or by placing 5 tea bags in a small basin filled with 4 cups of warm water to soak infected feet. Soak for at least 30 minutes, twice a day until symptoms subside.
