What Should I do to cure my fungal infections?

There is fungal infecton around my penis from past 5months. I bath once in 3 days.
Is there any home treatment.

Get something for athlete's foot that can be used in the area. If that does not work then see a doctor. Athlete's foot is a fungus that can affect the genital area and cause itching. Also use some Head and Shoulders shampoo and bathe more frequently.  (+ info)

How do you treat eye infections in dogs?

Recently, my dogs left eye has been watery and has a green discharge coming out of it. It is also pink and looks very swollen. How could this have occurred and what can I do about it? He's not nice around people he doesn't know because he's not used to that. What could I do at home or do I NEED to take him to the vet? Thanks.

You need to take your dog to the vet.  (+ info)

What do eye infections look like on rabbits?

My rabbit has some crust around his eye and it s red. His hair around his left eye has been basically glued down from hard crust. Should I take him in?

yep, sounds painful for the bunny. poor thing, you can't treat this w home remedies. not normal,  (+ info)

What are some of the eye's natural defenses that help to prevent infections?

If anybody knows of dpecifics it would be helpful. I already know crying produces a lacrimal solution which fights infections, bt is there anything else?

Your eyelids help block things from getting into the eye, and you have a reflex to close your eye if things come near them. Also, your eyelashes can collect little things before they get to your eye.  (+ info)

Is there anything you can get in the UK for fungal infections of the skin which actually works?

By this I mean ringworm, 'jock itch', athlete's foot or whatever you want to call it. I've tried several anti-fungal things and they all seem to do little better than just leaving it untreated.

Cheers folks!
Thanks AK. Tried that one :-(
Thanks rustynail. I've heard of the tea tree thing but never tried it. Might be worth a go.


These are my thoughts of what might be happening - I have not been educated to be an M.D. - just a lifelong learner.

What I have learned is that my stresses have oftentimes caused me to do things or to eat things or to inhale things that have more toxins in them, or that have weakened my immune system, like drinking and eating caffeine chocolate or high carb foods and sweets.

It sounds like the malady may be a result of an allergic reaction to something that is toxic to the liver/kidneys. IF it is you might then notice that when one gets hot - then a rash or itching will sometimes occur since the toxins are sweating out of one’s system onto an area of the skin that may be weaker and more easily irritated-inflamed.

ALSO whenever one’s immune system has become weakened the other problem can easily become a bacteria-fungus i.e. ringworm and/or yeast infection thrush, but it is hard to tell what the root causes may be without seeing and learning the details about what one has been eating breathing and applying to the skin. SEE <> https://health.google.com/health/ref/Ringworm <> Monistat 7 will likely kill any fungus in a few days and better micro-nutrition will keep it killed and will also strengthen one’s liver lymph and kidney systems to be able to better handle both an allergic reaction AND/OR bacteria-fungus outbreaks with less suffering in the future.

IF you think it may be an allergic reaction - although it may be a difficult process - try to identify the triggers from cosmetics meds nuts milk grains other-foods chlorine-water-in-showers smoke perfume moldy-smells laundry-cleaners etcetera by discontinuing them until the symptoms stop and then beginning them again to see how the body reacts. If one is like me one may start to see allergies to many things because the root problem for me was a severely weakened liver from too many nutritional supplements that were toxic and I never knew it until it was almost too late.

After several months of pruritus Urticaria with blisters and skin fevers primarily at the back of my knees and thighs sometimes when I got warmer, that had begun during the colder months of November inside a gas heated low humidity home, I have identified enough of my own triggers to allow my legs to heal with only a super-minimal amount of coconut cream cut with de-chlorinated water rubbed over my skin and a minimal number of full body showers.

After several applications my lymph glands have become severely allergic to petrolatum products that are similar to Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, and common sense has now taught me that any petroleum products should always become toxic to anyone’s kidney and liver with repeated applications. I had flare-ups immediately after I had applied organic olive oil so I eventually changed to minimal amounts of coconut oil after I had used a minimal amount of a petrolatum steroid for a few days to allow my legs to heal up. I also have flareups when I eat over 150 calories of nuts and/or milk fats and/or oils, but these usually flare up about three hours after eating them, but the olive oil always took about five to thirty minutes to begin itching.

Skin diseases can always return again and again and again and can get much much worse over time if they are not resolved. Soo I would strongly encourage you to seek out a 'good' doctor or a ‘good’ nurse and s/he will make a knowledgeable medical diagnosis and thoroughly explain the causes preventions and solutions much better than anyone on Yahoo_Answers could do without being able to see you personally.

Also, to know how difficult or easy it should be for a doctor to make a ‘good’ diagnosis - I encourage you to also become a ‘good’ medical diagnostician from your doctor’s advice and your own research through Yahoo_Answers and via browser searches.

I truly hope what you learn will help you to decide on the correct choices that will remedy your painful experience of pruritus-itching and rashes in the future.

My best to you and yours,

AI – a self taught nutritionIsT ><+>[(-:]

PS - IF you are interested, I feel I have become a quasi-expert on rashes and pruritus itching after many years of off and on flare ups due to my own nutritionally related asthma and gallbladder disease that ‘continued’ to become heart disease and T2 diabetes and then non-alcoholic fatty liver disease with either PBC or PSC. So you are not alone. Many many people suffer from pruritus and I have learned very late in my own disease(s) that when it is nutritionally related most doctors do not tell their patients that inadequate micro-nutrition absorption in the gut and liver ‘might’ be the root cause and the best solution, and is also the most likely cause to the pruritus and liver diseases that are currently overwhelming our American culture. So to do my part to make a difference in the world I now take a little time each week to help others understand why better micro-nutrition absorption in the gut is so important, and I have posted much of my own story via the link at: <> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091025223942AAni6lC <>. I hope you will have learned something today from my own mistakes and would not duplicate them – please pass on what you will learn from your own malady to your family friends neighbors and acquaintances. My best to you and yours. AI - nutritionIsT ><3>[(-:]  (+ info)

Can doxycycline treat bacterial infections of the eye?

Is doxycycline systemic? Can it treat infections anywhere in the body, including the eyes if one had bacterial conjunctivitis?

Question #1: Ciprofloxacin & trimethoprim-polymyxin are often used. For inclusion conjunctivitis, oral azithromycin, doxycycline or erythromycin are used. Gonococcal conjunctivitis may be treated with an injection of ceftriaxone. And adenoviral onjunctivitis is treated in a another way.

Question #2: Doxy is systemic if taken orally. Naturally, topical doxy is not.

Question #3: Although doxy is a broad-spectrum antibiotic in the tetracycline family, the trend now is toward targeted therapy using narrow-spectrum antibiotics. If you have doxy lying around, discard it. There are more kinds of conjunctivitis than bacterial, so one would need to be diagnosed first. Only bacterial conjunctivitis is treated with an antibiotic.  (+ info)

How can I prevent eye infections?

I often have conjunctivas that keeps coming back. Ive tryed eye drops and eye cream, but they didnt work for long. Does anyone have a way I could stop my eyes from being infected and and natural treatments?

You might look at your eye make up as a cause of this and get rid of all the old stuff and buy some that has "hypoallergenic" listed on the side of the package. Keeping your fingers away from your eyes will also help. And, if you wear contacts, no cleaning the contacts with spit - all of these can increase your risk of coninued conjunctivitis.  (+ info)

I was in Brazil. Do you know of any eye parasite infections common in Brazil?

Cultures for bacteria and viral infections came back negative. I am prone to corneal abrasions and rain water fell into my eyes at Carnivale. Only my left eye is affected.

There are no eye parasite infections common in Brazil. It must be an American thing.  (+ info)

Can dry lips and eye infections be related?

I have recently been suffering from horrible dry lips so bad I have looked like I am drinking fruit punch. In the past four weeks I have had three eye infections. I haven't spoke to a doctor yet, but I am wondering if they could be some how related. I have never had dry skin and do live in an area that has very cold dry winters. I have also never had a problem with eye infections....

Does anyone have any thoughts

yes go to the doctor  (+ info)

How to get rid of fungal infections in toenail?

I had one of my toenails taken out a week ago, it hurt a lot and i don't want to go thru the same thing with the other one which is also looking infected. How do i get rid of the infection without taking it out? it is looking a bit whitish at the top. any home remedies?
thank you! x

Toenail infections are difficult to get rid of because the fungus ir protected by the nail bed. Your options is to let the fungus eventually grow out or to remove the nail. In some cases, the fungus is so bad that the nail will actually fall off instead of growing out. I have an infection right now and have been using FungiCure or something like that (sorry thre away the box and the label is no longer legible) and applied it around the nail bed. It can take months this way. I try to keep my nails short so the fungus has nothing to grow on.  (+ info)
