What causes fungal infections?

Fungal infections arise from yeast, molds, and other fungal types. Although most fungi are harmless, a few can lead to diseases, particularly in opportunistic situations such as weakened immune systems. Common fungi causing infections include:

  • Dermatophytes: These fungi rely on keratin found in hair, nails, and outer skin layers, causing no harm to living tissue.
  • Candida: Candida albicans, a usually benign yeast residing on the body, can overgrow, resulting in itching and redness and rarely leading to severe infections.
  • Environmental fungi from soil or water, like Histoplasma, coccidioides, Blastomyces, and Aspergillus, can also cause infections.

Fungal infection medications we prescribe online

How to treat fungal infections?

When it comes to treating fungal infections, various types of antifungal medications are available online. These medications work by targeting different aspects of fungal cell structure and function. Here are the three main types of antifungal medications and examples of each:


Azoles are commonly used to treat skin and mucous membrane infections. They interfere with an enzyme crucial for fungal cell membrane synthesis, leading to cell instability and eventual death. Examples of azoles include:

  • Ketoconazole
  • Clotrimazole
  • Terconazole
  • Fluconazole
  • Itraconazole


Polyenes work by increasing the porosity of the fungal cell wall, ultimately causing the cell to become compromised and prone to bursting. They are often used to treat Candida yeast infections, including mucosal or invasive Candida infections. Examples of polyenes include:

  • Amphotericin B
  • Nystatin

FAQs about fungal infection treatment

How do doctors treat fungal infections?

Doctors commonly prescribe standard medications to treat fungal infections. Additionally, they may recommend other drugs, such as boric acid, nystatin, or flucytosine. Oral yeast infection treatments may include clotrimazole, fluconazole, miconazole, or nystatin. Treatment options for ringworm of the skin may also be prescribed.

How do you completely cure a fungal infection?

Treatment for skin fungus typically involves using antifungal creams, many of which are available over-the-counter. In severe cases, stronger prescription medications or oral antifungal medicines may be necessary for faster and more effective treatment.

Do I need to see a doctor for fungal infection?

Fungal infections can be contagious and may spread from person to person or from infected animals, soil, or surfaces. If you experience signs or symptoms of a fungal infection, it's advisable to schedule an appointment with your doctor for evaluation and appropriate treatment.

How do you stop a fungal skin infection from spreading?

To prevent the spread of a fungal skin infection, keep the affected skin areas clean and avoid sharing towels, bath mats, or other personal items with others. Additionally, wash your hands thoroughly after treating the infection to minimize the risk of spreading it to other parts of your body or to other people.

What are the best treatments for face fungal infections?

For facial fungal infections, most providers prescribe topical ointments and creams. A doctor may recommend antifungals with higher potency if the infection is severe. Consult our doctors at Your Doctors Online for the treatment and prescription of facial antifungals.

Are there over-the-counter treatments available for fungal skin infections?

Over-the-counter antifungal creams are commonly used to treat mild and common fungal skin infections such as ringworm, jock itch, and athlete's foot. Some of these creams are also suitable for treating vaginal yeast infections. However, in certain cases, prescription antifungal creams may be stronger or more effective for specific types of fungal infections.

Is it necessary to consult a doctor for the treatment of fungal infections?

Over-the-counter antifungals can help for mild infections, but for severe infections, you need more potent antifungals available on prescription only. You can consult a doctor at Your Doctors Online for the prescription of appropriate antifungals for your condition.

What is the standard duration of treatment for fungal infections?

To treat fungal infections, a window of two weeks is a standard duration. However, it takes 4-6 weeks to recover from the skin and hair infection.
