What Are Fungal Infections?

Fungal skin infections and fungal nail infections can be uncomfortable and itchy, but they are rarely life-threatening. Fungal infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, and jock itch are commonly acquired. These infections are typically caused by walking barefoot in damp areas such as around a pool or in a public shower.

When these infections occur, finding an effective over-the-counter treatment can be challenging At Sagebrush Dermatology, we can evaluate your condition and offer the right medication, saving you time and suffering.

How Does Antifungal Medication Work?

Antifungal medications work by targeting structures or functions specific to fungal cells but not human cells. This means that they fight fungal infections while largely avoiding damage to your body.

What Are the Different Types?

These medications come in different forms. Your specific prescription or recommendation will depend on the location of your infection. In some cases, antifungal medications like creams may be enough to get rid of your infection. In others, a course of oral medications or injections may be necessary.

  • Shampoos
  • Oral Medication
  • Topical Creams
