Dr. Mitw, What is fungal disease?

Fungal diseases are infectious diseases caused by fungi. The fungus itself is a parasite or saprophytic fungus, and grows on organic matter. They reproduce through spores. Superficial and deep fungal diseases were observed.

Which parts of the body are affected by superficial fungi?

As their name reminds-the upper layer of skin, nails and hair.

What is a deep fungal infection?

They can damage the dermis, subcutaneous tissue, subcutaneous tissue and even bones. The pathogens of deep fungal diseases inhabit the soil and feed on decaying organisms. They enter the skin when injured, but usually stay at the implantation site.

What is the complaint of the patient?

For example, in the fungus caused by cats (Microsporum canis), the patient complains of itchy erythema-scaly areas (ie “red and scaly”) with itchy peripheral edges. They can cover the hairy parts of the body and head.

Will vaccinated domestic cats carry this infection?

Domestic cats may be the source of this disease, but especially if it interacts with other cats outside, or if it is a new cat recently picked up from the street.

Summer is here-the era of swimming pools, marine attractions and hotel spa treatments. Foot fungus will begin to afflict many people. How is the infection progressing?

The inflammation usually starts in the feet or nails. For swimming enthusiasts, it is spread by scraping or using towels in the swimming pool. The fungus feels comfortable in a suitable hot and humid environment.

When we talk about foot fungus, how do we actually get infected?

More young people suffer from this disease than children. One of the most common reasons is the humid environment of closed or artificial shoes.

Unfortunately, closed sneakers and sneakers have been popular for a long time and usually lead to the spread of infections. On warm and humid days, it is recommended to choose sandals or slippers, even if it seems less popular.

Spores can survive for months or years in bathrooms, changing rooms, or swimming pools. Walking barefoot or using shared towels can promote the spread of infection.

People with immunodeficiency or using immunosuppressive agents, as well as people with impaired blood and lymphatic circulation, are at risk.

How do we know we have fungus? What are the symptoms?

Patients complained of severe and persistent itching in the legs, which can be exacerbated by fever and sweating.

There are three main clinical forms of foot fungus:

  • Intricate forms, The area between the third and fourth toes and between the fourth and fifth toes of one or both feet is affected. This form is typical of severe itching, especially when the feet are warming and sweating.
  • Hyperkeratosis form, There are redness and peeling of the skin, especially in the heel and arch area. This form is also called “moccasin” type fungal infection. It is usually combined with onychomycosis (fungal infection of the nails).
  • Dehydrated form, It is filled with bubbles in liquid form. It is also characterized by intense itching.

What is the treatment for fungal infections?

In most cases, we treat our patients locally in a more serious form and systematically according to their characteristics and habits. But in any case, you need to consult an expert, because identification and treatment are sometimes not easy, and if you accept advice from social networks, you may hurt yourself.
