Dry the area thoroughly after show directly to the affected area two or three times per day with a cotton ball or swab. If you have sensitive skin, it may be helpful to dilute the tea tree oil in a carrier oil like coconut oil, which has its own antifungal benefits ring, as moisture makes it easier for the fungus to spread.
