Secondly, the defeat of the skin with a Candida fungus is fraught with the appearance of a red rash on the surface of the body, various kinds of papules, itching and burning.

Hello Maria. Perhaps this is not a fungus at all, visit a dermatologist, without an accurate diagnosis.
Yes, lemon juice is a miracle medicine, I remember it was prepared by his mother, well helped. But all the same I consider that it is necessary to be treated by medical preparations, and under the supervision of a doctor.
I had an experience of using keto plus shampoo, quite good, I must say, from dandruff and itching, which are also the consequence of the fungus. So I thought, those who have this fungus in the inguinal region or armpits, maybe also it is worth trying this remedy? ..
It's worth trying. The presence of hair - always creates additional inconveniences for the use of ointments and creams. Experienced doctors advise to remove hair on the body, before applying ointment.
Here I was at the doctor passed the test, fungus. Has prescribed candida ointment and fluokortzil solution! Do not take two weeks to smear
Treatment of fungus on the skin can take 3-4 weeks, this is normal. If after 3 weeks there will be no improvement, consult a doctor again.
Even from experience I know, it happens that patients apply ointment irregularly. In this case, there will be no effect from treatment.
Hello, yesterday was at the doctor found a yeast fungus between the toes, could he appear from the fact that a month ago he was treated with antibiotics in a gynecologist, took fluconazole and nystatin at that time, or is it still a new shoe? Can iodine be treated and how often
After taking antibiotics, immunity may be weakened, this is a favorable factor for the fungus.
As for shoes, if the feet sweat more than the old, this is bad and can also be the cause.
It is better to take in the drugstore ointment, especially since some ointments are not much more expensive than iodine. Look at the list above.
Hello. I have a fungus under my fingernails. The nail is absolutely healthy, even more than other strong, and under it a free space. First it grows like all normal and then departs from the skin and there are some soft layers between it and the skin and then they become denser and grow colder. I've been drinking rumicosis for six months. I worked the surface under the nails with exoderil. And he is still alive, this fungus.
Hello, well, how did the fungus go away from you just exactly the same situation as they cured
What could it be?
Hello. There are other diseases of the nails, except the fungus. Descend or go to the dermatologist.
14 years on the fingers of the hand can not cure this disease year after year worse
Good afternoon, the nails are affected by a yeast fungus, it began in the last month of pregnancy, unfortunately, and infected the baby. The doctor can not prescribe treatment because I breastfeed, I fear for the child, what should I do? All drugs are contraindicated for lactation (
Have to follow the instructions of the doctor. You can begin treatment after the completion of the feeding.
For children there are drugs without age restrictions, but there are nuances associated with the type of fungi for example. If you doubt the competence of one doctor, refer to the other.
It is still important to observe hygiene, constantly wash, wear clean, do wet cleaning, disinfect shoes.
Is the yeast fungus contagious on the child's face ???
Hello, please tell me effective ointment for a child of 9 years. Have handed over soskob from a body - a yeast mushroom. We have been ill for 3 months already, waved iodine with diluted, betadine, lamium, lamifene, zalain, nizoral, after the UFO, the affected skin was slightly irradiated, but still new specks appeared, sweet ruled out, cotton clothes. I want to smear something, at least to suspend new appearances.

Good day! Spotchatka on 1 nosі vіdpav great nigot, left there відріс then відпав already on іншій нозі, dasla analіzі - viyavlennі spory. Lіkar appointed FUNIT, ale expensive, that shchayu shchudit pechyntsi. І chi potrіbno vzagali, schos piti mozhe ot nigot not vіdіs mozhat mazati chimos?
An analogue of Funita - Itraconazole, it is produced by several manufacturers. All antifungal tablets harm the liver, but here it is not as bad as it might seem if you do not have hepatitis or other chronic illnesses.
If it came down to the fact that the nail fell off, then one ointment can not cope, you need pills.
Hello. At me the fingernail at once has started to be fractured, then has turned yellow in some places and these places became soft and they can be removed easily, the finger has grown fat. I bought an ointment: Ketoconazole. Since I read on the Internet that it is possible a yeast fungus. I do not know if ointment helps, I smear a couple of days at night. Advise something please.
Yes, the symptoms are like a fungus. It is necessary to prepare for long-term treatment, to smear until the healthy nail grows. Better droplets or varnish, see the section "Preparations". Ointment can be used, but its effectiveness is low.
At the beginning of treatment, it makes sense to soften and remove the damaged part of the nail, this will greatly speed up the treatment. Used special drugs - Nogtivit or Nogtimitsin.

It is treated, the main thing is not to throw the medication, follow the doctor's instructions and go to the reception.
Spore fungus for a long time live outside the human body, so you need to wash and iron all diapers well, keep the house clean.
After all symptoms disappear, ointment should be applied for 2 more weeks.
