Easy to use at home, the formula is mild but effective and thus suitable for the whole family.

What are fungal skin infections

Fungi live all around us - in the air, soil, water and plants. Some even live naturally on our skin and in small amounts are not harmful to our health. But when too much grows it can cause a fungal skin infection. As it’s difficult to avoid the fungi around us, fungal skin infections are very common. Some examples of fungal skin infections include ringworm, jock itch, fungal sweat rash and fungal nappy rash.

Good to know!

Fungal skin infections are common, so if you are suffering from one you are not alone. They may feel uncomfortable, but in most cases there’s nothing to worry about and they can be treated easily.

Common symptoms of skin fungus

How to use?

Apply the cream thinly to the affected area and smooth in gently. Repeat 2-3 times a day for 2-4 weeks to treat the root of the infection. The symptoms of the infection, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment.Signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear.

Don’t forget!

Even if your symptoms seem to be clearing up, you should complete the full course of treatment to ensure the infection is treated.

When you have a fungal skin infection

Fungal skin infections can get worse if left untreated. That’s why you shouldn’t ignore them:
