Fungal Viral Infections

Fungal Viral Infections

Different microorganisms can bring on skin infections, and their symptoms can range from quite harmless to life-threatening. Skin infections caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites might also fall under this category.

The human skin is the biggest organ in the human body. It serves the purpose of defending your body against illness. There are instances in which the skin itself becomes diseased.

Infections that aren’t too severe can sometimes be remedied with over-the-counter drugs and home treatments, but more severe illnesses may require professional medical attention.

At IPAL, the doctor will do a physical examination and inquire about your medical history. A sample from the afflicted area may also be taken for microscopic examination.

Different kinds of skin infections

  • The most prevalent fungal infection is athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), frequently spread when people walk barefoot in public restrooms or locker rooms. Your toes’ skin starts to flake off and turn white. The soles (bottoms) of the feet can be impacted by the athlete’s foot.
  • Onychomycosis, sometimes known as nail fungus, is a typical foot issue. Toenails are typically affected, becoming thick, yellow, and brittle.
  • Jock itch (tinea cruris) is a rash that typically affects men rather than women in the groyne area.
  • Scalp ringworm (tinea capitis): Most often seen in young children. Although it results in hair loss, hair typically grows back with the proper care.
  • Tinea corporis, or ringworm: A rash that doesn’t fall under another category, is referred to by healthcare professionals by this “catch-all” term. Often, the rash takes the shape of a ring.

Causes and treatment

The infection may lead to the rash when your skin interacts with a dangerous fungus. For instance, the fungus could contact your foot if you borrowed a pair of shoes from someone who had athlete’s foot and infect you. Direct contact between people or animals and people often results in rashes.
