Usually when you notice a yeast infection, ringworm, athlete’s foot, etc. and you think about antifungals, you are thinking of azoles such as Ketaconazole, Clotrimazole, Fluconazole, etc. or drugs like Nystatin, Diflucan. Anyway there are many antifungals that are made by pharmaceutical companies, and they work. Some of them I would say work faster than the natural antifungals, but my only problem with them is sometimes they are more harsh on your skin, and another thing is they only cover what’s on the outside, not the fixing the problem from the inside.
There are antifungals that you can put on your skin such as Tea Tree Oil, Garlic, Aloe Vera, Colloidal Silver and many others. Of course you should be careful with them as to not use too much of it or else it can burn your skin (it has happened to me personally). But if you’re careful you may experience zero side effects. My favorite topical antifungal happens to be tea tree oil, but I may mix it up, and also apply Apple Cider Vinegar just because I do not want the fungus building a resistance. Although the goal is of course to never get infected at all.
Now for antifungals that you would eat, there are certain vitamins / supplements that actually work very well. One which I believe is one of the most potent is Raw Garlic, it acts like an antifungal, antiviral and antibiotic all at the same time. The only problem is Raw Garlic tends to not be easy to consume. There are many other antifungals that you can take such as Pau d’Arco, Black Walnut, Oregano Oil, Coconut Oil.
What you have to know is, even if you use an antifungal from a pharmaceutical company, you are much better off combining it with an internal antifungal that is natural. You can go to a health food store and easily get the right antifungals in pills, as well as consuming it completely raw and natural. I prefer going an all natural route, but if you don’t want to do that, you can still yield results and it will be healthier for you.
