Fungal infection is a disease that usually affects the skin, though it can also affect other organs. It is caused by fungal organisms including molds, mildew, and yeast.
Symptoms of fungal infection range from mild to severe. Mild symptoms include discoloration and swelling of the nail and surrounding areas; moist, reddened patches over various parts of the body; and a cheesy and smelly discharge from the vagina. Severe symptoms can disrupt normal organ functioning and require immediate medical attention.
Fungal infections are more common and/or severe in people who use antibiotic medication supplements for extended periods, or who use corticosteroids, immunosuppressant drug supplements (used to inhibit normal immune functioning), or contraceptives, as well as in people with conditions such as obesity, AIDS, and diabetes mellitus. People in the last category must seek proper medical treatment for their condition while simultaneously addressing the fungal infection itself.
But there are natural cures for fungal infection that do not involve the use of pharmaceutical drug supplements. They involve restoring the biochemical balance of the body, and making dietary and lifestyle changes designed to improve one’s general health.

Use chamomile, fungicidal herbal remedy that also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, both internally and externally. Drink chamomile tea natural supplements at least once per day, and apply the used tea bags directly to the affected area.
