Fungal Infections, as the name implies, are infections which result from contact with a fungus. There are numerous fungii in nature & most have no adverse affects on humans but there are some fungi which may interfere with the delicate balance in some people.
There are 2 types of fungii – Dermatophytes and Yeasts
Dermatophytes consume dead skin and other keratin such as nails and hair, and cause the majority of fungal infections in humans. Dermatophyte infections can penetrate into deeper layers of skin and in extremely severe cases can affect the body systemically, especially if the immune system is depleted.
Yeast infections are usually caused by a fungus called Candida (sp.albicans) but there have been more than 100 species of yeast that have been identified. Candida albicans and other species are commonly found from the mouth right through the gastrointestinal system including the bowel where up to 60% of the population have Candida infections.
Some Types of Fungal Infections are:
- TINEA CAPITIS (Ringworm of the scalp)
- TINEA MANUUM (Ringworm of the Hand)
- TINEA PEDIS (Athlete’s Foot)
- TINEA UNGUIUM (Ringworm of the nails)
- TINEA BARBAE (Ringworm of the beard)
- TINEA FACIALIS (Ringworm of the face)
- TINEA CORPORIS (Ringworm of the body)
- TINEA CRURIS (Jock Itch)
