Body Fungal Treatment

Fungal infections are common and affect the skin. It often results in a red, itchy, or rash on a patch of skin and if not treated can get noticeably worse and cause irritation. Most fungal infections are not dangerous and can be easily treated with creams.

Fungus is a minuscule organism such as mold or mildew. Fungi are on the human body, in the air, and in water. If harmful fungi make contact with your skin it can cause a fungal infection. You may develop a rash or itch.


How Do Antifungal Medicines Work?

Antifungal medicines often break the cell wall of the fungus using chemicals. Breaking down the wall of fungi leads to its death. Some medicines do not break down the walls of the fungi but instead prevent them from reproducing so the fungi eventually die off. The majority of antifungal treatments are effective on their own. But sometimes a combination of other medicines may be needed.

Length of Treatment?

There are many fungal infections out there and the treatment for such infections depends on a number of factors. Some of these factors include the severity of the infection and the type of medication used. In some cases, treatment could be quickened by using two types of antifungal medicine. For example, combining oral antifungals and topical antifungals to treat a skin infection.

What is the Risk of Fungal Infection?

Fungal infections are like other diseases they are transmitted from person to person. It can also be caused by an overgrowth of fungus in the body. People with weak immune systems are more like to get fungal infections.

I had my Molemapping done four months ago at the Gigiri branch during one of my visits in Kenya, timely report generation helped me identify a possible cancer causing mole.
