The main skin symptoms are redness, itching and burning, the appearance of scales, cracks and erosion. Treatment For minor lesions, an ointment is prescribed for the fungus on the skin of the body. Other forms of antifungal drugs can also be used: creams, shampoos, nail polishes, powders, baths. Many of these products are available over the counter without a prescription. With the defeat of large areas of the skin of the body, it is necessary to take systemic oral medications.

Fungus on the body is a rare occurrence, more often it happens on nails, hands and feet, but it also happens on other parts of the body. You can pick it up by direct contact with a sick person, as well as through common things: slippers, towels, manicure and hairdressing tools. The greatest danger is posed by public toilets, swimming pools, showers, and beaches. Most often, the fungus is picked up from relatives. Predisposing factors

For some problems, in particular with thrush, antifungal agents may not be prescribed at all. The causative agent of thrush is part of the natural microflora of the mucous membranes, and immunity-strengthening agents, vitamins and trace elements are often prescribed to treat the disease. Such therapy is mandatory for many fungal infections, since the fungi themselves develop on the human body only when the body's immune system is weakened. Prevention Since the risk of infection is high in public places, the first step is to avoid them. According to the rules of personal hygiene, combs, towels, slippers, each person should have their own.

He will show his activity when a person's immunity is weakened. Symptoms and diagnosis When the skin is affected by a fungus, redness, itching, burning occurs, the process may be accompanied by an unpleasant odor. Hair becomes excessively oily or dry. When the nail is damaged, it acquires a pathological color (gray, yellow), becomes brittle, rises above the bed.

In this case, the inner thighs or the groin area are affected. The disease is caused by the fungus Epidermophyton flocosum. It forms red-pink rings or solid circles. Edematous ridges may appear around the pathological focus. The disease is accompanied by itching and burning.

These are usually capsules or pills, but they can cause stomach and intestinal upset. In case of severe adverse reactions, the tablets can be replaced with injections of antifungal drugs. The use of systemic drugs lasts at least several weeks, in severe cases it can last up to 12 months. Depending on the drug, the tablets are taken every day or once a week. It must be remembered that the fungus is often found in the human body, but does not show activity. After the first positive results are achieved, treatment cannot be stopped.

But this is compensated by the difficulty of getting rid of the problem. Treatment of a skin fungus on the body can last for several weeks or months, and if not treated correctly, it can take years. Fungus is not only an external problem, but of the whole organism and immunity as a whole. The cause of the disease lies in reduced resistance. It is difficult to get rid of the fungus without restoring immunity and body resources. Fungus Infection Where Fungus Infected

Where is the danger?

Often people, after returning from vacation, experience discomfort in their legs. It hurts to touch your thumbnail. "Maybe hit where?" - the person soothes himself. It does not even occur to him that he contracted a serious infection - onychomycosis or nail fungus.

The fungus is often "attached" to those who adhere to a healthy lifestyle. Not surprising. Pools and saunas, showers, gyms, beaches are places where it is easy to get an infection.

The patient guesses about the illness, but does not rush to the doctor. He is shy. Most often he tries to solve the problem on his own. It rarely succeeds. Itself becomes a source of infection.


Russian scientists distinguish three types of onychomycosis.

Why is the disease stuck?

Fungal spores are pathogenic organisms that can stay on the nail in a dormant state. The infection will make itself felt in two cases:

  • with reduced immunity,
  • with trauma to the nail plate.

If the two factors coincide, infection is inevitable.

Hello dear readers and blog guests! Luminous eyes, smooth skin and silky hair are said to indicate a person's good health. However, there is another indicator - healthy nails. Fingernail diagnostics have been used in Chinese medicine for 5 thousand years.

Mirror of the state of the body

Doctors say that you can read not only past ailments on your nails, but also emerging problems. The explanation is simple. From the point of view of the body, the nail is not the most important organ. If the body has a deficiency of trace elements and minerals, the savings begin with it. That is why, by its appearance, it is possible to determine the lack of trace elements. And even identify the disease at an early stage.

Healthy nail plate

What are nails? These are the horny appendages of the skin. They are formed by the tight fit of the scales to each other. Modern cosmetology offers many products for strengthening nails. All of them will help only if it is really a disease of the nail plates.

Nails often reflect the state of the human body. They warn about systemic diseases. In these cases, cosmetics are useless. Want beautiful nails? Take care of your own health.

In a healthy person, nails have a uniform light pink color. Only at the base there are holes with a lighter shade.

There are three forms of changing the nail plate:

  • by color,
  • surface and structure,
  • size and shape.

What the color change indicates

Change in the color of the nail plate is hard to miss. This must be taken seriously. It is compulsory to undergo a medical examination.
