Stay away from fungal skin infections this monsoon

Mumbai-based Abhay Talathi from Skin Space Clinic says fungal infection, insect bite or sting reaction and allergy are the most common causes of itchy skin. He also advises to take medication according to the cause.

‘If one has fungal infection, then antifungal medicine (tablet and cream) can be used. Anti-allergy tablets or soothing lotion such as Caladryl can be used in case the cause of itching is allergy,’ Talathi told IANS.

The fungal infections are caused due to moisture, wearing wet denims for a long time and constant friction against skin. (Also read:  Don’t let the rains ruin your hair and skin! )

‘There are two kinds of fungal infections – Ringworm infection which starts as a small portion and spreads in a ring form. It commonly occurs in the sole of the feet, armpits and behind the ears. Pityriasis versicolor shows as light coloured or black coloured patches on arms, chest or back,’ he explained.
