Treating Skin Yeast Infections

Treating skin yeast infections that are caused by the tinea subspecies of dermatophyte, can be treated by using an oral dose of 500 to 1000mgs of griseofulvin. In severe cases, or in the event the tinea does not respond to griseofulvin, then terbinafine, itraconazole, or ketoconazole may be helpful.

In many cases tinea can be treated topically with creams instead of pills. The creams that have shown good results include haloprogin, cyclopiroxolamine, clotrimazole, econazole, miconazole, terbinafine, tolcicate, and tolnaftate. You might have to try different creams to find the one that works the best. In super severe cases, a cream with a pill may be necessary.

Candida yeast infections of the skin quite often respond best to clotrimazole, miconazole, creams containing haloprogin, nystatin, or one of the imidazoles. Severe cases may require a prescription of fluconazole, itraconazole or ketoconazole in addition to the cream.

Treating Skin Yeast Infections Naturally

Below are the best natural products I have found for treating skin yeast infections naturally without the sometimes uncomfortable side effects of prescription drugs.

If you suffer from any kind skin yeast disease, it may be wise to take a look at your diet. Many times allergies to foods cause intestinal dysbiosis which affects the appearance of the skin. It is also possible that the skin yeast is actually being caused by an internal yeast infection or fungal infection and their mycotoxins.

For relief of the symptoms of a skin yeast, try aloe vera gel or oil of oregano diluted in olive or coconut oil. Try the mixture on an area of skin that is generally tougher than delicate areas to get the solution right so it does not burn your skin.

An older class anti-fungal that is getting great results for skin yeast is Gentian Violet. Gentian Violet is a natural and safe alternative to Lotrimin and was used extensively before the advent of the azole drugs. One word of warning; Gentain Violet will stain your clothes purple. People have reported that spraying your clothes with hair spray or Zout stain remover before washing takes the stain out.

Organic Coconut Oil is a superb candida yeast infection killer. Studies have found that organic coconut oil explodes the nucleus of the candida yeast cell effectively killing it. It also provides much needed relief from the itch that's often associated with candida skin yeast infections. Just rub it on the affected areas like you would any lotion.

Cinnamon Oil was found to be deadly to oral thrush when applied directly to the lesions in AIDS patients. Because of this it also works very well for skin infections. You might have to dilute it like you do with oregano oil.

Grapefruit seed extract in liquid form may also work. It always tests well on yeast species in the intestine so should work well for treating skin yeast. This may have to be diluted as well.

The 11-Strain powder when combined with the diet on this website is showing fantastic results for unexplained skin rashes that nothing seems to solve. Some of these infections people had for years and they are going away in weeks.

People are having very good luck with Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX skin cream. Terrasil works very well for ringworm and tinea. It also helps relieve the itch and burning associated with these infections. A proprietary formula of minerals also promotes healing of the skin. This would be very good to use with the 11-strain probiotic powder.

Kolorex creams active ingredient, horopito, has shown in numerous studies to be effective against candida. It can be applied directly to the infected areas.

Lufenuron, commonly called cell wall suppressor or chitin synthesis inhibitor, has been medically proven to kill dermatophyte type of fungi that commonly infect the skin as various species of tinea. Tinea includes ringworm, jock itch, athletes foot, nail fungus, dandruff, and other dermatophytes. It has been used for years for dogs and cats with this type of skin yeast with very good success. Studies have been done for aspergillus and it did not work. I have not been able to find a study for Lufenuron and candida yet so I have no idea if it works for those species?
