Doctor :   you can apply garlic paste directly on the affected area
User :   how to get and from whr?
Doctor :   If you do not have fresh garlic, you can dilute garlic oil along with Vitamin E oil and a few drops of coconut oil and apply this blend of oils to the affected skin. While garlic oil helps to control the infection, Vitamin E oil helps to fortify the skin and coconut oil helps to provide it with several fatty acids that help to prevent the infection from spreading
Doctor :   avoid wearing tight underwear or other tight acrylic garments everyday
Doctor :   Do not remain in wet clothes for a long time. Change into dry ones as soon as possible and dry your affected body parts before changing into a new set of dry clothes.
User :   ok
Doctor :   Yogurt is also a good as both a topical application and diet snack
Doctor :   Use tea tree oil to cure the fungal infections on the skin.
Doctor :   Drink a lot of water, at least 8-10 glasses every day to flush out any toxins from the body. It boosts your immune system, and helps you fight off infections.
