Soap should not be used on the affected area as it may irritate the skin, thereby exacerbating the condition and its symptoms. To effectively relieve the itch and irritation associated with fungal infections, use a soap alternative eg, Pinetarsol solution or Pinetarsol gel. These will help maintain the skin's natural acid protection while relieving the itch and reducing inflammation.

Dust inside clothing that is in contact with affected area eg, socks and underpants to keep the skin dry and help prevent reinfection.
