  • Fungal infection often occurs in this season, it is good that your infection is completely gone, you have won half the battle otherwise in many cases it takes a long time. It takes little time to get rid of its marks but here I am going to tell you some home remedies If you applied them daily you will see fast results.

    The first thing I want to say is that do not be stressed as we are already aware that our body heals itself but if we are stressed then this healing process will take more time. So be relaxed and try these remedies -

    1 - Camphor and coconut oil - Take one bottle of coconut oil and mixed 3 to 4 camphor into this sake them properly then keep it in a dry space, apply this mixture on the infected part of your body at night before sleep on daily basis, it shows the great result.

    2. Turmeric with honey - Take 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey as per your requirement then add half of the spoon turmeric in 2 tablespoon honey mix it then applies it infected part before going both. You should apply it for at least 1 hour so keep remember to apply it before one hour to take a shower.

    4 Olive oil with onion juice - Take half of spoon onion juice and 1 tablespoon of olive oil . apply this mixture on your infected part and give slowly massage at least for 5 minutes.

    5. Aloe vera - This is one of the best home remedies but tries to use original aloe vera which you must have at your home so take a little part of aloe vera from the plant and peel it then rub it slowly on the infected part.

    These home remedies will help you to get rid of marks.

  • It is good that Fungal infection has gone and only black marks are there on the inner thighs. Nothing to worry. You can get it cured by some simple methods in the house. It may take some time. But don't worry.
    1, The best medicine for this is coconut oil. Coconut oil works wonders for the skin. It is an anti-bacterial and moisturizer. You have to use good cold-pressed coconut oil. You have to apply the oil on affected areas. Don't wash immediately The skin will absorb it. Daily do it two or three times. It will give very good results.
    2. Lemon juice with honey is another best remedy for this. Take a spoonful of honey and add 3 or 4 drops of lemon juice and mix thoroughly and apply on the area where these black marks are there. Don't rub very hard. Apply and let it get dried.
    3. Fresh lemon juice is another remedy for these black marks. Apply this juice on black marks and wait for some time and then you can have your bath,
    4. Orange peel powder with milk is also a good remedy for black marks. Mix orange peel powder and milk in 1;3 ratios. Apply the same on your skin and wait 10-15 minutes. Then wash with water.
    5. Aloe Vera is another natural remedy which works very nicely. Cut Aloe vera leaf vertical into half and rub the skin with the inner side of the cut leaf. Allow the skin to get dry and then wash with cold water. Repeat this daily till your marks vanish.
    6. Potato juice or thin slices of potato are also good. Cut the potato into slices and immediately keep them on the area where you have these dark marks. Wait for 15 minutes and then wash with cold water.
    7. Mix water and apple cider vinegar in equal parts. Then use them to apply to the affected area.
    8. Pineapple juice is a good remedy. Alternatively, slices of pineapple can also be used. Apply the juice on dark patches with a cotton pad and rinse with water after 5 minutes.
    9. 1 part of oats with 2 parts of natural yoghurt mix with no additives is an excellent remedy. Apply this mixture. Wait for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash with water.

    I used cold-pressed coconut oil for 2 months and got rid of the dark marks from my hands. I recommend coconut oil strongly.

    You may take up the following tips to resolve the present issue -

    4) Use of Onion and Cucumber- Onions have the cleaning effects on the blood and Cucumber flushes the toxins inside our body systems. This combination would help your skin to regain its original colour if used regularly for at least two months.
    5) Regular use of coconut oil - Apply a little Coconut Oil on the affected part regularly to tone up your skin. It works as a moisturiser for your skin apart from its antibacterial and antiviral property. Skin colour will improve with its regular application.
    6) Hydration of your body with enough water - Consuming at least 2.5 litre of water regularly will help to flush out the unwanted toxins from your body helping to erase the dark tone.

  • It is easy to treat the fungal infection but very difficult to remove the scars that are remaining there after the fungus infection is cured. Still there are some home remedies that are said to bring the skin colour back to original but the process is long and tedious and requires patience. Some of these methods are as follows -

    1. Turmeric and coconut oil - A combination of these two items when applied as a paste on the affected area can remove the scar. Just mix some turmeric in the coconut oil to make a paste and apply on the affected area. It has to be done for quite some time at least a month till some improvement is observed. The affected area would appear yellow initially but that is due to the turmeric colour and there is nothing to worry about that.

    2. Apple cider vinegar - Apply a little quantity of the apple cider vinegar using a cotton ball on the affected areas. This is to be done once a day for at least 15 days and to be continued based on the improvement.

    3. Coconut oil - Using coconut oil on the affected area for a long time can bring some change of the colour and slowly remove the scars. This is to be applied at bed time for at least a month.

    4. Oregano oil - This oil is also useful when used in a diluted form on the affected area. One has to check with the label on the oil bottle and ensure that it is made from wild oregano and not from the common oregano.

    5. Tea tree oil - Mix a few drops of the tea tree oil in 1/4 cup of coconut oil and apply it to the affected area once at bed time for at least a month period and se the result to continue further.

    In addition to above the experts advise to observe certain things in one's routine life which can bring changes in the body due to life style change and due to the cleansing efforts of these actions the deficiencies in the body start diminishing. So believing in that kind of doctrine some of the suggested course of actions are -

    (A) Avoid stress and stressful situations as far as possible.
    (B) Take healthy and nutritive foods.
    (C) Occupy oneself in satisfying hobbies or work.
    (D) Avoid synthetic undergarments and go for cotton ones.
    (E) Keep the body hydrated. Drink at least 3-4 litres water per day.
    (F) Do exercises and go for long walks.
    (G) Keep good hygiene.

    Knowledge is power.

  • To get rid of fungal infection marks the best home remedy is to mix Kasturi turmeric along with coconut oil and make a paste and apply the same over the fungal marks and surely it would vanish in few days. And those who have the fungal infection, the best way to get rid is to apply the mud mixed and used by the pot maker. There is also one more treatment is to apply red mud on the affected areas. The fungal infections, and its after marks need to be treated otherwise the spread would be more. The medicinal paste available in the market may be of temporary relief but the desi way of treatment is time tested.
