Hello dear,

Thank you for your contact to health care magic.

I read and understand your concern.

I am Dr Arun Tank answering your concern.

The scar of fungal infections are temporary. It will go on after some times.

Recurring fungal infection has two important underlying cause one is HIV second is diabetes.

As per your age I think you must test your self for the HIV is the most common cause of fungal infections.

But it can also occur in other condition like frequent sweating. So by avoiding this we can also avoid fungal infections.

Take the complete treatment for the fungal infections. With proper precautions once cured this infections will never reappear with proper precaution.

Please maintian good hygiene as this is the key in treating all the infections. Please wear cotton undergarments as this can help cure the infections.

I will be happy to answer your further concern on bit.ly/DrArun.

Thank you,
