Medically, treatment of the problem may be consulted to a healthcare professional where he will give you medicated shampoos or antifungal creams to get rid of it.

On the other hand, there are also a couple of home remedies you can perform on how to eliminate skin disease like this. Ward these annoying fungi off by doing some of the following below:

Maintain your blood sugar level if you are diabetic since it is one of the causes of the problem as well.
  • Yogurt is one noted remedy on how to get rid of the problem. This can be applied on the affected area to relieve symptoms such as severe itching.
  • Apple cider vinegar can be massaged on the area of affectation and see how it gives favorable results.
  • Essential oils such as tea tree oil, olive oil, and oregano oil are known to be beneficial for the issue as well.
