Homemade anti-fungal cream
Now, he is always careful to treat every little itchy skin patch. But going to the lake is not his solution. Instead he uses this little potion I mixed up. My husband uses it daily to prevent jock rash, as that is the only area that can flare up. His feet are cured. This homemade anti-fungal cream works better than prescription creams. So, if you are tired of all those anti-fungal creams, try this. It works better than Desenex, Lotrimin, Tinactin, Monistat, and Lamisil.
Here’s what you need:
One of the main ingredients is shea butter — a white or yellowish fat composed of five fatty acids. Shea butter is extracted from the inner seed of the shea fruit, which grows on the African Shea tree or shi tree (be careful blending that word together). The trees take about 15 years to start producing, but by 20 to 30 years they are in full production, which lasts for 200 years. Now that’s a crop.
Here’s some good points — Shea butter has anti-inflammatory effects as well as anti-skin tumor properties (trials showed it inhibits skin cancers). And it’s an antioxidant as well. And it’s edible. It also blocks UV rays.

Tea Tree oil is an essential oil from the Melaleuca tree, so you don’t need much of this one. It has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.
