What Causes Fungal Infections?

Fungal infections are often caused by microscopic fungi that are common in the environment. Fungi live outdoors in soil and on plants but are also found on many indoor surfaces and human skin. Certain types of skin infections can be caused by bacteria that are able to infect your skin through wounds or openings like hair follicles and pores. Fungal infections are very similar, but they are caused by fungi, rather than by bacteria.

Fungus can often be allowed to grow and proliferate on the skin, for example, when a person wears excessively damp or wet clothing or when a person sweats heavily on a consistent basis. Fungus thrives in damp environments that aren’t exposed to constant sunlight and can grow on the skin when these conditions are present for a sufficient amount of time.

Understanding Fungal Infections

Mild fungal skin infections can look like a rash and are very common. For example, ringworm is a skin infection caused by a fungus, not a worm! Fungal infections in the lungs can be more serious and cause symptoms that are similar to other illnesses, such as the flu or tuberculosis. It’s recommended that you see a doctor if you suspect a fungal infection in the lungs.

Fungal meningitis and bloodstream infections are less common than skin and lung infections but can be life-threatening. Because the symptoms of fungal infections can be similar to those of other illnesses, proper diagnosis and treatment are often delayed. The more you know about fungal infections and your chances of getting one, the better you can protect your health.

Offering You the Relief You Deserve

Here at Certified Dermatology, we’re excited to be offering our patients a number of effective solutions to some of life’s most common skincare concerns, including fungal infections. For the most part, these issues can be treated with noninvasive means, giving us the ability to address the presence of fungus without subjecting you to any significant downtime or recovery period.

Topical solutions can often address the presence of fungus that has grown in areas where skin contacts other skin. Skin folds between the toes, in the armpits, behind the knees, and in other similar areas are common sites for the development of fungal skin infections, which can frequently be addressed with the use of antibiotics or topically-applied reams.

Fungal infections are as unique as the individuals who experience them, so your treatment will likely depend upon the severity and nature of your infection. During your consultation, we’ll get the chance to learn about your specific issues, so we can work closely with you to recommend a treatment protocol that will enable you to enjoy the relief you know you deserve.
