Q: I have a fungal infection in my beard, and my beard is very thick so I have been advised not to wet the skin below the beard when making wudu; beacause my beard is very thick. I know I dont have to wet the skin but can I avoid putting a handful of water and making khilal of my beard?
A: Yes you may leave out the khilaal.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
