FUNGAL INFECTION


Incidence of Fungal skin infections is taking an epidemic form in our country. What is a fungus? Fungus (plural; fungi) is basically a primitive organism which lives in the air, soil, water and or on plants. Some fungi are useful, whereas others may be harmful.

Fungal infections happen when harmful fungi invade the skin surface and starts growing there. Fungal infections are especially difficult to handle as they mainly affect the dead skin layer and evade the immune system making it difficult to kill them.
