Your Guide To Buying an Antifungal Cream

By Yehudah Posnick

    There are a number of types of fungi that cause infections on the skin and nails. It's estimated that one-fifth of the world population suffer from various fungi: Athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, yeast infections and nail fungus are just a few of the possible ailments. The burning and itching sensation can be unbearable. There is also a fungus that attacks the finger and toenails. If the fingernails are infected, it can also lead to the nails becoming brittle and breaking. But a number of over-the-counter treatments have been developed against them—both organic and chemical. Here is a guide to some of the best anti-fungal creams on the market. 

    • Pharmaceutical treatments: Conventional treatments will contain the active ingredient Miconazole Nitrate. Others contain Methyl Sulfonyl Methane, Clotrimazole or Benzalkonium Chloride. They work by preventing certain stages of fungus growth.

    • Natural treatments: There are skin care products with all-natural ingredients. There are certain ingredients that are common to many natural treatments:

    • Honey/Manuka Honey: Bacteria and fungi generally cannot live in the high sugar concentration of honey. Honey has a certain antiseptic effect when put on skin infections.

    • Aloe Vera: Since they grow in a desert climate, the aloe vera plant has to be efficient in absorbing water from the surroundings. Excess moisture due to sweating (as in the case of diaper rash, jock itch, or athlete's foot) helps fungi grow. Aloe vera can be effective in absorbing that excess moisture, taking away the fungus' main source of growth.

    • Cehami: This is an extract from an Australian flower that has been found to be effective in killing microbes, as well as reducing swelling and pain. It also has an absorbent quality, taking in the moisture from the surroundings.

    • Tea Tree Oil: This oil has been found to be effective in relieving the itching and burning of athlete's foot fungus. It also washes away the fungus from the nail bed in people who suffer from fungus on the nails. 

    • Helps hair growth: Some people said that putting anti-fungal creams containing miconazole or ketoconazole in their hair can help stimulate hair growth.

    • Good for diaper rash: Diaper rash can also caused by a fungus. (But it could be from bacteria as well—if it is, an anti-fungal cream will not work.) If the treatment is suitable for a baby, you can use the anti-fungal cream for diaper rash as well.

    • Yeast infections: These infections are also from a type of fungus (Candida), which can affect the throat and mouth, as well as the skin. Many anti-fungal treatments will be effective against yeast infections as well.

    • Fungistatic versus Fungicide: A lot of over-the-counter treatments are fungistatic treatments. Fungistatic creams only slow the growth of fungus, instead of actually killing the fungus (like a fungicide does). They will take longer to work, and will require more discipline on the part of the patient to see good results. If they apply a fungistatic only occasionally, the fungus might become resistant. That will make you have to look for a stronger treatment to get rid of the fungus. 

    • Keeping the infected area dry: Anti-fungal treatments will only be effective if you can keep the area dry and clean. If you're suffering from Athlete's foot or ringworm, it is essential to change socks daily, and to prefer using cotton socks over other materials. The fungus inhabits dead skin (such as the toenails)--it's important to keep the nails cut short. If you're battling a nail fungus, cut away the infected part of the nail as it grows out.

    • Duration of treatment: It should go without saying that if the condition ever gets worse after a particular treatment, stop immediately and try something else. If you see an improvement from a particular treatment, expect to have to use the product for 2 weeks for yeast infections, jock itch or ringworm. Athlete's foot can take up to 4 weeks to go away. Nail fungus treatments will take the longest: 6-12 weeks. (This is because the old, infected nail has to grow out and be replaced by healthy nail. It might take 4 months to totally eliminate a nail infection.)
