How can you recognize a fungal infection?

Avoiding groin fungal infection is very important. Especially women often suffer from this in the groin. It will not only grow there, but often it also starts to itch. Over time you will feel that the bumps become harder and therefore they can also cause a burning sensation. Usually it is a ringworm infection and that is an infection that is located on the outer layer of the skin. Sometimes you can also suffer from red spots. Some people also get some kind of lumps on the edge in the groin. These look a lot like blisters, but they are not. It is important that you have this checked by a doctor or dermatologist.

What can you do to get rid of this?

There is no 1 way that works to get rid of this fungus. There can be different ways and that often also depends on the phase of infection and the exact species. In most cases, people are prescribed lamisil as a cream. However, you can also get Lotrimine to get the fungus under control. This prevents it from growing further, but it is not really a pesticide. When it arises on the feet, Clotrimazole is often chosen. This is a remedy that has a good effect especially on the feet. This is a breeding ground for fungi as you often sweat here.
