Skin fungi (cutaneous mycosis): Natural treatments and remedies

Skin mycoses are fungal infections that affect the skin and which can be particularly unsightly as well as annoying. They can be caused by problems with our body’s immune system (of which our skin is an integral part), by states of stress and exhaustion and also by poor personal hygiene. Generally they represent an easy problem to solve but, if our immune defenses (and those of our skin) are not restored quickly, they can also last for a long time. For this reason, whenever this problem arises it would be advisable to make our skin (and the immune system) stronger with onediet rich in vitamins A and E and sulphur, silicon and selenium. The consumption of carrots, garlic, onions, pumpkins, broccoli, watercress, cabbage and in general all green leafy vegetables and all yellow-orange vegetables is therefore highly recommended. These foods are able to make our skin stronger and more toned and, above all, more resistant to infections. For For topical use, you can apply lemon juice and apple cider vinegar directly to the skin, leaving it to act as long as possible. Also very useful is the juice of garlic and onion (the antifungal properties of which have been known since ancient times) which, applied directly to the part of the skin affected by mycosis (and left to act as long as possible), can lead to disappearance of the infection in a very short time. Coconut oil (whose beneficial effects for our skin are well known) can also be very effective. It can be applied directly to the skin and left to act for an hour or more, even several times a day. Finally, you can use herbal tea compresses with a powerful purifying and detoxifying action for our skin. In particular, plantain and burdock compresses can be used which can lead to the disappearance of the infection (and symptoms) in a short time.
