Use FUNGICURE Anti-Fungal Soap for Jock Itch and Ringworm as you would any other liquid soap, but with the added confidence that it is also effective for eliminating/washing away fungus. Use FUNGICURE Anti-Fungal Soap for Jock Itch and Ringworm alone or with other methods you may be using to control fungal infections.

WHAT IS FUNGUS INFECTION OF THE BODY, GROIN, AND HANDS and FEET AREAS?

Generally speaking, common fungus infections of the body, hands and feet areas (topical infections) are caused by a variety of fungi; actual living organisms (members of the yeast and mold family) which exist in varying degrees, at all times in nature, and tend to thrive in dark, damp and moist conditions...in the soil...on animals as well as humans. These organisms may penetrate the skin's surface through even the smallest crack or tear, may be spread from animals to humans and may be spread among humans. Common topical fungus infections generally fall into three categories: microsporum (hair and skin), epidermophyton (skin and nails), and trichophyton (hair, skin and nails). Among the more common fungi are T. rubrum which can cause jock itch, E. floccosum which can cause ringworm infection and affects the body, hands and feet, on and in between the fingers including the skin around the fingernails; also T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes, which can cause athlete's foot and infect the feet, on and between the toes including the skin around the toenails. Often such infections develop slowly and may be difficult to treat if not attended to promptly and treated appropriately with an effective anti-fungal medicine.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A TOPICAL FUNGUS INFECTION?

Topical fungal infections can affect anyone, but men typically experience a higher incidence of jock itch than women. The appearance of jock itch can be characterized as:

  • A circular, reddish-brown, raised rash with elevated edges in the groin and/or thigh area.
  • Itching, chafing, burning or skin redness.
  • Flaking, peeling or cracking skin.
Some topical fungus infections may present themselves on the skin as ring-like formations with clear centers, commonly referred to as ringworm. Other such infections, when on the feet, or finger and toe areas, are often characterized by scaling of the skin, burning, cracking, itching and related discomforts. When nails become infected, they may appear to become opaque (cloudy white), thickened, brittle, friable (easily broken) and in some cases, discolored (greenish/brown).

WHAT ARE CAUSES OF JOCK ITCH, RINGWORM AND OTHER FUNGAL INFECTIONS?

Jock itch and ringworm, like other fungal infections, can develop under a variety of conditions, including:

  • Hot and humid weather conditions that can cause perspiration to accumulate.
  • Friction caused by wearing tight, damp or perspiration-soaked clothing for an extended period of time (e.g. exercise or bathing suit garments).
  • Sharing clothes or towels with others who have a fungal infection.

PROMPT ACTION AND PROPER TREATMENT:

Recognizing and treating fungus infection early is very important for successful results, so it is wise to consult your doctor promptly for advice if you suspect you may have a fungal infection.

HOW TO AVOID RECURRENCE OF FUNGUS INFECTION:

  • Good personal hygiene is your first line of defense against recurring fungus infections.
  • Shower or bathe daily, as well as after physical activity that may cause sweating.
  • Avoid sharing towels.
  • Change and wear clean clothing, especially undergarments that are in contact with affected areas, daily.
  • Avoid any practices that can tear or bruise skin. Anything that tears or opens the skin invites fungus to invade.
  • If you have a fungal infection on another area of your body, such as ringworm, athlete's foot,or finger and toe area fungus, be sure to treat it right away to help prevent the fungus from spreading to the groin area.
