What Is Fungus Infection?
Generally speaking, common fungus infections are topical infections 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. Once infection starts, spreading may occur from one site on the body to another. Common topical fungi infectives 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 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?
Some topical fungal infections may present themselves on the skin as ring like formations with clear centers, commonly referred to as ringworm. Other such infections when in the finger and toe areas are often characterized by scaling of 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). NOTE: If you believe you may have any type of fungus infection, do not delay consulting a doctor for advice. You may wish to show him/her FUNGICURE Gel and discuss its use.

How Can You Avoid Recurrence of Fungus Infection?
- Keep hands and feet meticulously clean and dry, as well as any areas of the body that may be normally covered by clothing which restricts air flow allowing moisture to build up. Fungus enjoys and thrives on moisture.
- In cases where athlete's foot (tinea pedis) has been a problem, wear well ventilated shoes and change to clean socks daily.
- In cases where jock itch (tinea cruris) has been a problem, wear loose or well ventilated garments whenever possible and change garments which come in contact with infected areas at least daily.
- Avoid trimming cuticles and avoid cutting nails too close. Anything that tears or opens the skin invites fungus to invade.
