Use a Body Essentials Organic Scrub and Mask.
It has anti fungal and anti bacteria properties, bi-weekly use goes a long way. I think its to do with the sandalwood and saffron which kills off bacteria etc. It extracts impurities as well.
My dad has been using it for quite some time now.
Its available at Takashimaya in their organic section in the Bath section.

I got some type of fungal black spots over my face and under arm of my body. some times its very itchy. so please help me by recomending some medicine or a good clinic to consult..

My son used to have a lot of pimples....he tried all sorts of stuffs but didn't see any improvement. One day our maid gave him a bar of papaya soap (Brand Name is Sutla) and a bottle of astringent.....his skin condition improved tremendously after using the products. I have since used it on my affect areas (I have pimples around my mouth area)
and my pimples cleared within a week. But be warned that the astringent is very drying to skin. These items can be purchased at shops in Lucky Plaza.....but this particular shop named MJ is the cheapest. I was ripped off the first time I bought.....the soap was $2.50 but I was charged $4.50 by another shop....I recommended to my friend, whose son's face was plagued by pimples and it also cleared up quite a lot.....there is this soap specially for pimples and quite moisturing and it;s $4.00. The orange papaya soap can also be used for the body!!

Ask the shop assistant for advice.

Good luck and keep us posted!!!

Acne and Fungal infections of the skin are two totally different things. If you truly have a fungus, you need to treat it with anti fungal cream prescribed by a physician that has diagnosed it as such.

For acne, the best thing is to wash your face every am and pm and use products that don't clog your pores and not to use too many products that dry out your skin as you will produce more oil making it worse. After you wash your face in the pm use a 2% salicylic acid cleanser. For spot problems Physicians choice has an acne cream that is great. Chemical peels are also effective in treating acne in the long term.

Hope this helps.

My friend always have outbreaks but lately it got really bad.

The doctor gave her isotretinioin. It's very strong, & her pimples clears off within 2 days.

But doctor recommended that she had to check her liver within 1 or 2 months, just in case! She did & was fine. :)

Rice vinegar just dab it on with cotton bud, before sleeping wash off next day. Also buy some drinkingvinegar to balance the body pH.

Yeast is probably the cause, should clear up within a week!

Most of the creams are steroid based, makes the skin thin, and only work for short time, if it's fungal may need oral medication, hygiene very important..
