Fungal acne is a different case from acne vulgaris. It causes rash-like bumps on the skin, small and itchy. It results from the Malassezia yeast’s colonization of the hair follicles and often occurs in adult males with oily skin. Although this yeast normally exists in the skin, it can invade the hair follicles, especially in people living in a hot and humid climate. If you have seborrheic dermatitis or other fungal infections, then you’re more at risk of having fungal acne.
Damaged follicles can attract fungi and this happens when you use a hot tub, wear tight clothes, rub skin against skin, or remove your body hair. The pimples from fungal acne look similar, feel itchy, and could be painful. They mostly occur on the forehead, chin, chest, neck, back, shoulders, and upper arms.
Antifungals like itraconazole are effective in treating this skin condition, cleating up lesions. However, itraconazole causes nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain diarrhea, and toxicity to the liver (1).
The good news is, there are alternative treatments that do not cause the mentioned side effects. Here at CANhaveTODAY, we use all-natural ingredients like plant extracts and essential oils.
