Home Remedies and Herbs for Fungal Infection

What is Fungal Infection?

Fungal infections are conditions caused by overgrowth of fungus on the body. Fungus is a classification of organism that includes mold, mildew and yeast. Fungus can live virtually anywhere including in the air, on surfaces or in water. 1

Fungus commonly lives on the human body. When fungus on or in the human body grows out of control, it becomes a fungal infection. Because of how fungal infections grow, they can be difficult to kill and often recur. Some fungal infections, like ringworm, can be passed between skin contact and are highly contagious.1
 
What Causes Fungal Infection?

There are different fungal infection causes depending on the type of infection. Most fungal infections are caused by a fungus called ringworm.1,2 Here are some fungal infections types and their causes:

  • Tinea: A fungal infection on the hair, skin and nails caused by a type of fungus that lives on the skin
  • Athlete's Foot: A fungal infection that affects the feet caused by moist environments like swimming pools, locker rooms and damp socks and shoes.
  • Yeast Infections: Fungal infections can be caused by an overgrowth of candida, a yeast that grows in the vagina and elsewhere on the body.

Fungal Infection Symptoms
 
Common fungal infection symptoms include:

  • Red, ring-shaped patches on the skin
  • Cracking or flaking skin on the outer edges of the patches
  • Yellow-colored toenails
  • Itching and swelling around the vaginal area (vaginal yeast infections)
  • Stinging, burning or itching in the affected area
