Can ethanol be effective in curing antifungal infection?
Hello, Can ethanol be effective in curing antifungal infection? I have ethanol at my home. My brother has got antifungal infection. Will it be effective in treating the infection? Please leave your comments.
@souptik Like hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol can help kill off the fungus that's on the surface level of the skin. You can apply it directly to the affected area or soak your feet in a footbath of 70 percent rubbing alcohol and 30 percent water for 30 minutes. It kills the fungus causing the infection, besides keeping the affected area dry. Dip a cotton ball in 90 per cent isopropyl alcohol and dab on the area. Do not wash off the alcohol as it will evaporate by itself. Repeat twice-thrice daily.
