Abstract

  The current study evaluated and established the activity of various extracts from Aloe barbadensis Mill and Azadirachta indica against Tinea Corporis, a fungus causative agent of ringworm disease. The disease is widely distributed all over the world with various degrees. The aqueous, ethanol and acetone extracts of these plants were tested. The aim of this study was to examine the antifungal effect of these extracts against Tinea Corporis. The in vitro antifungal activity was discovered by observing and measuring the zone of inhibition formed on selective nutrient media. The results suggest that most effective inhibition of the fungus was obtained from acetone extracts of both the plants. In addition, Aloe vera extract showed more potent antifungal activity as compared to the extract of Azadirachta indica. This finding supports the use of Aloe vera and Azadirachta indica acetone extracts in the treatment of ringworm infections.
