Candidiasis of the skin and ayurvedic management
Abstract: In cutaneous candidiasis the skin is infected with candida fungi. This type of infection is fairly common. It can involve almost any skin on the body, but most often it occurs in warm, moist, creased areas such as the armpits and groin. The fungus that most often causes cutaneous candidiasis is Candida albicans. Ayurvedic approach to Candida is to avoid specific diet, lifestyle, stress management and simple herbal detoxification and rejuvenation therapies including panchakarma certainly will help.
