Mycology and its medical preventions

Medical mycology is the study of fungal infections. In immunocompromised hosts systemic fungal infections are usually seen. Systemic fungal infections lead to pulmonary infections. Fungal infections are usually seen on skin, nails, and hair. Common fungal infections are Intertrigo, Thrush, and Pityriasis versicolor, Athlete’s foot, nail infections, ring worm of the body, ring worm of the groin. Control of fungal infections may include prevention as well as treatment. Prevention includes avoidance of environments and conditions conducive to fungal growth. Maintenance of a “spore-free” environment in hospitals can reduce the incidence of nosocomial fungal infections. Fungal infections include Candidiasis, Aspergillosis, Ring worm diseases, Fungal eye Infections, Cryptococcal infections, etc. 

Fungal skin infections are caused by different types of fungi, including dermatophytes and yeasts. Fungi invade and grow in dead keratin. Keratin is a protein that makes up your skin, hair and nails. There are several different types of fungal infections. They are divided into different groups depending on what type of fungus is involved.

  • Candidiasis
  • Aspergillosis
  • Ring worm diseases
  • Fungal eye Infections
  • Cryptococcal infections
