We are well aware that fungal infection is very common regardless of age and gender. Anyone can get a fungal infection if there is no practice or regular hygiene.
In fact, even people who are practicing good hygiene can get fungal infections, especially those who are living in the tropical areas where their bodies can easily get moisten from the warm temperature and climate thus providing a healthy environment for fungus to grow and multiply, or it can be transmitted from an area or facility that has poor hygiene; for example a gym, or a public bath or bathroom.
The most common fungal infections that usually found on the skin are athlete’s foot, ringworm, yeast infections and jock itch.
However, having a fungal infection is not considered to be a dreaded disease because it can be treated and prevented easily. Most people who got infected by fungus or those who suffer from the types of fungal infection mentioned above often use an antifungal cream like Fungalor that effectively treats the infected area and prevents fungus from coming back.

So the chances are if you have one or more fungal infection that is located in different parts of your body, you need another type of antifungal infection cream. However, many pharmaceutical companies nowadays.
