Fungal Infection Medication

What is a fungal infection?

Fungal infections such as thrush, athlete's foot, jock itch and onychomycosis (fungal nail infection) are common and can affect anyone. Fungi are most likely to affect your skin, nails and lungs because fungi reproduce through spores that can be inhaled or touched directly, causing infection.

How are fungi infections treated?

There are different treatment methods available for specific fungal infections. Some infections are treated with oral medication, while others may need a topical gel, ointment, spray or cream. If you have symptoms of a fungal infection, it's best to contact your doctor for the best treatment solution.

Expert’s Opinion

Expert’s Opinion

“There are many different types of fungal infections. Some are superficial, meaning they only affect the top layer of skin. Others are deep, affecting the nails, hair or internal organs. Fungal infections can be difficult to treat and often come back.

The most common type of superficial fungal infection is athlete's foot. This usually causes a scaly rash and itching between the toes!”
