Barber itch: As a man, it is not unlikely that you will visit a salon regularly or make use of a clipper in cutting your hair, shaving the beards and maintaining your good looks. But as you go about grooming yourself, you should be mindful of the risks of the infection known as barber's itch.
Maybe you have not heard a lot about it, but barber’s itch is a very common disease that infects men. It is a fungal infection that is commonly known as beard ringworm. As the name implies, it affects mostly adult men by appearing as red circular rashes in areas where facial hairs grow, like the chin, cheeks, neck and upper lips.
This infection which is scientifically referred to as tinea barbae is highly contagious and can be transferred through direct and indirect contact with infected persons or animals. It spreads very quickly, starting from one single spot, it can quickly spread to other areas around the face, if left untreated.
It can create a lot of discomfort in the form of itching, irritation, open sores and bad appearance as men usually develop permanent spots and scars even after treatment.
Poor Hygiene: Since dirty and moist environments encourage the growth and spread of fungi, a man who does not take good hygienic measures in making the areas around the chin to be clean and dry, especially after having a shave can easily develop barber’s itch. Clippers, towels and even clothing should also be kept clean to drastically reduce the risk of developing an infection.
Direct and Indirect Contact: You must be careful when sharing razors and clippers with other persons, as this presents the easiest means to directly come in contact with the infection. Barber’s itch can also be contacted indirectly through animals and infected persons.
Infected soils: The fungi Candida that is responsible for barber itch is usually found living in soils and can easily be picked up by a person who comes in contacted with infected soils, maybe by lying on the ground or through any other means.
Barber itch is a skin infection with its causative agent being fungi and this makes some specific treatment options to be possible.
Anti-fungal creams: Rubbing anti-fungal creams on the infected area can be effective in curbing the fungal growth and eventually clearing out the rashes. The use of anti-fungal creams should be done with caution, especially those that contain some corrosive acids that can cause damage to mild skins.
Herbal ointment/medicines: There are certain ointments and medicines made from herbal extracts that are highly effective in their use for treating barber’s itch. These are made with natural ingredients that are active in treating barber itch.
Ginger and honey mash: You can prepare this homemade mixture to treat the fungal infection. This is squashed into a mash and applied on the affected area for some hours, most preferably at night, then washed off later. The anti-fungal properties of ginger and honey help suppress the growth of fungi and clear the area without any negative effect on the skin.
