If you’re not dealing with anything other than normal germs, regular soap is just fine. However, if a fungal infection is involved, a different kind of soap is needed to heal and cleanse your body. Fungal infections go beyond your run-of-the-mill dirt, and require special attention to clean. An anti-fugal soap will be able to get rid of fungal infections, and is specially designed to do so. This type of soap is made from virgin coconut oil or palm kernel oil, olive oil, vitamin E, soothing calendula, natural glycerin and various organic antifungal medicinal plant extracts. Aside from its antifungal benefits, this soap also moisturizes skin with its essential oils.
People need to use this soap while infected with ringworm, herpes, athlete’s foot, staph, jock itch and other fungal infections to cure them quickly. However, people with eczema, psoriasis, acne, and sensitive skin also can benefit from this soap. For general use, regardless of fungal infections or skin conditions, this soap cleans and softens the skin.
Anti-fungal soap comes in bar-form and liquid soap form. The liquid form can also function as an anti-fungal shampoo, but it can cause stinging in the eyes and more tender parts of the body, so use caution if you choose this option. Antifungal laundry soap, detergents and soaps for clothes are other options that stop the spread of the fungal infection to other people. If one person has a fungal infection, it can easily spread to others through their clothes. Using antifungal soaps for the clothing of the infected person will stop the fungus from infecting others.
Antifungal Soap for Ringworm
This type of anti-fungal soap can kill the ringworm fungus, as well as other fungi, without damaging non-infected cells. Also, it prevents a return of the infection because the organic medical plant extracts stop the fungi from growing. Sometimes, soap can damage the skin when it kills the fungus. This makes the skin prone to re-infection. This soap stops the fungal infection without injuring the skin, which prevents relapse. Also, the soap itself stops the fungus from re-germinating. This way, this soap stops the fungus from coming back in two ways! In particular, this soap treats ringworm. It can be used in the shower—but remember to apply ringworm treatment cream afterwards, in addition to using the anti-fungal soap.
