  • Do not visit gyms, public pools, or public bathing areas until your infection is cured and use a separate soft towel to clean the infected skin.
  • Tea Tree Oil is a natural antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties that helps to reduce fungal infection.
  • Wash your clothes in hot water and dry them in the sunshine. Avoid sharing your clothes, towel, shoes, socks and hair brush with others.
