Fungal skin infections

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. Christopher Marshall is treating fungal skin infections.

Some examples include athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm and sometimes even dandruff can be caused by a yeast-type of overgrowth.

Medicated powders and anti-fungal creams are available over the counter and are generally effective, but often take some time to work so be patient and stick with it.  

If a rash is especially inflamed or painful, you may need a prescription product.
