Get rid of itchy skin with homeopathy
When 27-year- old Ankit came to our clinic, he complained about itching on genital areas and armpits. He mentioned that he had been to a water park with his friends few months ago and since that day he has been experiencing an itching sensation. It started as a small patch on his thigh and within few days rapidly spread to the sensitive areas. The itching worsened at night. He had consulted a dermatologist and was diagnosed with Tinea Cruris, a fungal Infection. The doctor advised him an ointment and an oral medicine that provided temporary relief but itching started as soon as he stopped the medication. Ankit was unable to sleep properly in night for around 6 months, as itching interrupted his sleep. Did Ankit find a permanent solution for his itching?

What is Tinea Cruris?
Commonly known as Dhobi's itch, Jock itch or Ringworm in the Groins, Tinea Cruris is a fungal infection caused by a fungus Tinea. It affects both sexes but is more common in males. The infection spreads because of tight restrictive clothing, contaminated towels or hotel bed sheets or use of common swimming pools. It is characterized by itching and burning in the groin areas, inner thigh areas and genital areas. Redness occurs on the skin with raised margins, sharp borders and blisters, which may have oozing and crusting with abnormal dark or light skin. The lesions may expand and spread with clearing in the centre. People suffering of diabetes and obesity are at a higher risk of contracting the infection. Tinea is said to be an opportunistic infection caused by weak immune system.
Homoeopathic treatment for Tinea Cruris
Homeopathy has good scope in treating fungal infections including Tinea Cruris. Homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person as well as his pathological condition and offers long-lasting relief from the symptoms.
The disease diagnosis is vital in homeopathy, but the cause of the infection is not just probed to the level of bacteria or virus. Other factors like mental, emotional, and physical stress that could pre-dispose a person to contracting infection are also taken into consideration. Homeopathy being a holistic treatment, the quality of life can be greatly improved with it.
At our clinic, after understanding his case in detail, Ankit was given a homeopathic medicine. Just within 15 days of starting homeopathic treatment, the itching reduced by 50% and lesions faded. Within a month and a half of taking homeopathic treatment, Ankit completely recovered from the fungal infection.
What makes homeopathic medicines even better than the conventional treatment for all types of skin problems is the fact that they are gentle, have zero side-effects and offer long-lasting relief from the symptoms. To know more about skin problems and their homeopathic treatment, click here.
Apart from the homeopathic treatment to provide relief from your fungal infection, you can also additionally follow some self-help tips.
- Keep your skin dry to help stop infection from spreading.
- Wear loose fitting clothes. Cotton clothing is a good option, as synthetic clothes retain moisture, which is a growth medium for fungus.
- Never share towels, soaps, clothing, shaving kits or any personal items with a person, who is suffering from Tinea.
- Wear protective footwear while using public showers as infection from feet are generally transferred to elsewhere in the body.
- Dust mild powder to avoid moisture in the infected area.
- Drink adequate water, as it helps eliminating toxins from the body.
