It is estimated that 10% to 20% of the world population is affected by fungal skin infections. Antifungal skin care products come as ointment, solutions, lotions, powder, gel, spray or lacquer that help prevent and treat most topical skin irritation due to superficial fungal infections. These products help relieve itching, burning and irritation due to fungal infections including tinea cruris (jock itch), tinea corporis (ringworm), (athlete's foot) and Candida albicans (yeast). May contain antifungal drugs such as miconazole. May contain other substances such as zinc oxide to protect skin from exposure to urine and feces, vitamins, oils and skin conditioners.
