November 4, 2019

Local immunity reduces and skin thinning occurs
due to the steroid medicine, Therefore your skin builds bacterial resistant
fungus And chronic fungus
As well as tinea incognito growth Patients get stuck in this vicious cycle
So visit a reputed doctor who not only prescribes the right medicine, but also the right dosage
meant for you So here are the favourable conditions under
which fungal infections thrive We will not look at the symptoms of fungal
infections and the causative organisms of them Superficial fungal infections
Which affect your skin And mucous membrane
Are caused by Trichophyton fungus Your oral and vaginal mucous membrane is also
affected by the Candida or yeast fungi Fungal infections are mainly
In intertriginous areas, such as the groin,
gluteal left axilla, toes web spaces, buttocks
And the cleft axilla, Apart from between the fingers as well
The fingernails and space between them are often under attack by fungi as well
Abdomen, legs,
back, And arms,
Are affected by tinea corporis, another fungus Chest,
back, And neck,
When faced with hypo And hyperpigmentation,
Have fine, scaly fungus on it called tinea versicolor Fungal infections on legs and hands are called
tinea pedis And tinea manuum respectively Fungal infections on the head are called
tinea capitis On the beard
And moustache have an infection called tinea barbae on them These fungal infections, to a layperson, are
commonly Called ringworm This is not caused by any worm, but is rather
a superficial fungal infection Thick, reddened, raised edges are formed which
only look like worms but are actually just how the fungi grows Let’s take a look at what the patients face
as symptoms in this Fair skinned people have reddened
raised borders along with itchy lesions On the folds of their bodies Slowly, these spread in ring formats
Peripherally On the active border
fine scaling occurs The central part of that lesion
clear up eventually, there isn’t much infection present there Lesions
Occur due to much movement, sweat and friction It tends to itch as well especially at night
and in the evening too During bathing, if you put hot water on the
lesions, then the patient तो patient tends to feel better and comforted. You get relief for quite some time with this
method But the itchiness eventually kicks in and
the lesion could spread But in dark-skinned persons this lesion tends
to look brown or grey instead of red. This darkness increases on itching The patient feels more discomfort with this Itching,
irritation, Redness increases
Lesions spread A local or area specific infection
Suppose the groin, abdomen,
Or pubic area infection, buttocks,
waist, axillae,
chest, arms
face, legs could spread to other body parts After using Steroidal cream
lesions temporarily Subside
But the fungal lesion changes here too Lesions get unusually
present and the morphology changes
Such a fungal infection is called Tinea Incognito So how do you diagnose these fungal infections? Diagnosing these fungal infections is the
job of a dermatologist Or skin specialist doctors
Who do this clinically There is no need for a specialised test though
as this is a common, non-serious and easy to detect simple disease But during this diagnosis the patient who
has Tinea incognito or a nail fungus, fungal scraping
Or KOH mount might have to be done, The fungal hyphae will be looked at by the
specialists and diagnosed accordingly Then the woods lamp examination
Is done especially to differentiate between
erythrasma And fungus by fluorescence. And rarely,
A fungal culture is done So how do you manage a fungal infection? How to manage and treat fungal infection? Treatment of fungal infection
is as simple as its diagnosis. Treatment is divided into two parts First you have the Drugs,
topical creams, and oral medications. And secondly
Your Personal hygiene and working on preventing
the recurrence of infection. Medical line of treatment has
Topical medicines Patient can use
creams, ointments,
lotions, gels,
shampoos, and powder
Prescribed to them depending on the site of infection
and extent of infection. Usually,
Topical shampoos, Such as Ketoconazole 2%,
Selenium sulphide, Ciclopirox olamine,
Zinc pyrithione And Topical antifungals

ointments, gels,
lotions, aerosol sprays,
and powders. And

Clotrimazole Ketoconazole
Econazole and
Allylamine creams Like Naftifine

oral antifungal drugs Is reserved for those patients who are unresponsive
to topical antifungal creams Or maybe in those patients who have extensive
fungal injections Main oral antifungal drugs are,
Griseofulvin, Fluconazole,
ketoconazole , Terbinafine ,
Itraconazole. Voriconazole is another new medicine which
is only used in Indoor hospitalised admitted patients
Or immunocompromised patients Well, look, these medicines are costly And moreover, taking these medicines without
medical advice Leads to
Possible side effects if your body is not compatible with it That is why, these medicines can be prescribed
by only expert experienced doctors any inexperienced doctors’ advice or self
-medicating yourself is not advisable And yes, take the entire Treatment course
your doctor gave you Do not suddenly stop the medication on initial
relief The use of topical medicines requires you
to keep the Golden rule of 2 In mind First Important thing is
That the affected area should be cleaned and dried
All moisture needs to be removed before applying the topical medicine Put the cream on your fingertip
And apply it on the infectious lesions’ Boundary and 2 cms within the boundary, and
outside it Apply the cream on the periphery and drag
it into the center, while blending it Do this twice a day, once in the morning and
once at night for the stipulated course which is usually 2 weeks
The fungal infection will have
complete clearance in that much time. But after the treatment you have to maintain
hygiene to prevent it from spreading and worsening again Spread information about Moisture prevention,
maceration, And personal hygiene

such as colleagues, schoolmates,
