As most fungal skin infections are on the surface of your skin, you’ll usually be able to apply topical antifungal treatments directly onto your skin in the infected area. There are a variety of treatments available in the form of creams, lotions and medicated powders. Some treatments are available over-the-counter from pharmacists. For example, there are sprays available for treating athlete's foot and antifungal shampoos for scalp infections. Ask your pharmacist for advice. However, if the infection covers quite a large area of your skin, or affects your nails or scalp, your GP may give you a prescription for a stronger medication, which is often in tablet form.
