Infection caused by funguses can cause cracking, bleeding, and pustules. The cause comes from a weakened immune system and exposure to damp dirty conditions. Regular medicine treats it with oral anti-fungal medications that are often funguses themselves. If original causes are not corrected, medicines must be used for a lifetime. There is also danger to the liver from medications.
From the natural perspective, fungal infections can be a result of excess sugar intake and other debilitating dietary problems. This causes acidity, and as the Chinese describe it, it becomes a damp heat condition.
You can remove alcohol, tobacco, coffee, black tea, and dairy as well as fruit juices and refined sugars.
