Fungal Diseases

Fungal infections occur in the skin and skin appendages (hair, nails) and mucous membranes.

It manifests itself in the form of redness and itching on the skin, and color change and thickening in the nails.

Fungal infections called tinea are transmitted from person to person and from animal to person. Use of common towels, clothes, slippers, etc. and transmission from the infected environment can also occur. Scalp involvement in children is important because it can also cause permanent baldness.

Pityrasis Versicolor (Tinea Versicolor), on the other hand, is an infection that develops as a result of an increase in the number of a fungus that is a member of the normal flora of our body and does not show any contagious feature. Unlike other fungal infections, it is in the form of brown spots that are often seen in closed areas such as the trunk, after sweating.

Candida infection is observed in the skin, nails and mucous membranes. In infants, thrush on the tongue is often manifested with redness and swelling in the diaper area, while in adults it is in the form of itchy redness and red bumps under the arms, groin and under the breasts.

This type of fungus, which is in the normal flora of our body, is also not contagious. The diagnosis of fungal infections is made by microscopic examination of samples taken from clinically suspected cases and by culture.

Depending on the location and extent of the fungal infection, topical and oral treatments can be used. One of the most important approaches in treatment is to take preventive measures to prevent the disease from recurring.
