Nothing helped me get rid of the annoying itch until I discovered Homoeopathy

I am a 25year old man. I was suffering of a bad itch in my private parts and armpits after I had been to a water park with my friends. It started as a small patch on the thigh and within a month it rapidly spread everywhere. The itching was really bad especially at night. I spent sleepless nights for almost 6months. I was consulting a dermatologist and was told that it was Tinea Cruris (Fungal Infection). Every time I visited the doctor the same cream and medicine were given with different names. There was no relief whatsoever. A friend of mine in the office who suffered of the similar problem advised me to visit his homeopathic doctor as he was completely cured after taking his medication. Out of desperation for cure I visited his homoeopathic doctor. After detailed question answer session I was given homeopathic medicines and was called after 15days. The itching in the affected areas had reduced by 50% in the first 15days and in some areas the lesions had become faint too. I continued the medicines until I completely got rid of this monster.


Tinea Cruris is a fungal infection of the skin caused by a fungus Tinea. The most common etiologic agent for Tinea Cruris includes Trichophyton Rubrum.  It is very commonly known as Dhobi’s itch, Jock itch or Ringworm in the Groins. It affects both sexes but is more common in males. It is more commonly found in adults than children. The infection spreads because of tight restrictive clothing, contaminated towels or hotel bedroom sheets, using common pools and autoinoculation from reservoirs on hand or feet. Heat and moisture in the infected area are the growth medium for this fungus. There is itching and burning in the groin areas, inner thigh areas and genital areas. There is redness of the skin with raised margins, sharp borders, blisters which may have oozing and crusting with abnormal dark or light skin. The lesions 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.


Homoeopathy in Tinea Cruris

Homeopathy has good scope in treating Tinea Cruris where conventional medicines have failed. Homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person as well as his pathological condition.

The disease diagnosis is important but in homeopathy, the cause of the disease is not just probed to the level of bacteria or virus. Other factors like mental, emotional, physical stress that could pre-dispose a person to contracting infection are also looked into.

The correct homeopathic remedy tries to correct this disease predisposition. Homeopathy focuses not on just curing the disease but to cure the patient and restore his health.

 If disease pathology is not very advanced, homeopathic remedies do give a hope to cure, but even in incurable cases, the quality of life can be greatly improved with homeopathic medicine.

Homeopathic medicines are gentle, safe and have zero side-effects.


Self Help Tips

Skin should be kept dry to help stop infection from spreading.

Wearing loose fitting, 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 suffers 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.

Avoid non-veg food as they could trigger itching.

Drink adequate water as it helps eliminating toxins from the body.
