In this article, we are going to be talking about how you can treat your ringworm on the scrotum without the use of any drugs.
Ringworm is a very common fungus and in most people it will go away on its own, without treatment. Unfortunately, ringworm on the scrotum is not the same as other types of ringworm, and it is usually caused by an underlying condition that cannot be treated by over the counter medication.
If you are treating your ringworm on the scrotum then you have probably heard of the ‘treatments’ that you can get from the drug store. One such drug is erythromycin, which can help to kill the fungal spores that can cause the ringworm. Unfortunately, there are also some pretty serious side effects with erythromycin and these include a burning sensation in the area of the ringworm, difficulty in breathing and even loss of consciousness!
Another type of ringworm treatment is the use of oral medications.
The problem with oral medicines is that they tend to treat the symptoms rather than the cause. Oral antibiotics are used to treat the fungal infection that causes ringworm and in most cases this will also be a successful cure for the ringworm.
Other treatments that you can get from your local drugstore include topical creams and lotions that work to help dry out the affected areas. These creams and gels can also help to kill off any living fungi that may be present on your skin, and so help to eradicate the ringworm completely. While some people are happy with these sorts of treatments, you should be cautious when using them, as some people may develop allergies in response to the use of such products.
Other ringworm treatment options that you have available to you include surgical procedures.
You may well find that getting rid of ringworm on the scrotum requires a procedure known as a podophyllotomy. This is a form of surgery that involves the removal of the fungus that causes ringworm.
A podophyllotomy may not be suitable for everyone, and in some instances the fungus may grow back and cause more damage to your body. The downside of this is that it may leave scars that look like those that you would get if you had to get rid of the ringworm using the topical treatments. Some doctors may recommend that you have this done as part of an overall treatment and in this case the ringworm on the scrotum may be treated by using topical creams or ointments in addition to the surgery.
If you cannot afford the surgery that is required to get rid of the ringworm then you will be better off trying out some of the ringworm treatment options.
Although this method has its disadvantages, the good thing about it is that it can get rid of the ringworm entirely, without any risk of the fungus coming back. This is especially useful if you have been able to clear up the problem yourself and have no more problems.
Ringworm can be a very embarrassing problem for those that suffer from it and is something that can make it difficult to go out in public without feeling self conscious. The good news is that there are lots of things that you can do to help to treat the ringworm and get rid of it completely, so that you never have to experience it again.
One of the best ringworm treatment options is to keep your skin dry as much as possible, and this means that you should never expose your skin to direct sunlight. The reason why is because the rays of the sun are believed to trigger the growth of the fungus.
As a result you need to keep as much of your skin as possible in the dark, and keep your hair off of it.
Also if you have an existing ringworm infection, you should keep your skin clean and ensure that it does not rub up against the surrounding parts of the scrotum as this can lead to further spread of the infection. The next best ringworm treatment option is to use the creams and lotions that contain some sort of anti-fungal ingredient, but in a more gentle way.
Ringworm can be embarrassing, but it is one of the easiest things that you can do to prevent having to deal with it again. In the end, you should always make sure that you treat the area thoroughly using natural methods. As long as you are careful, you should be fine.
