Treatment of fungal skin diseases in Bratislava

Fungal skin diseases are quite common today, since it is impossible to completely protect oneself from the threat of infection in this case. In most cases, fungal infection occurs through contact with sick people or animals. Most often, the fungus is transmitted domiciliary, by touching objects used by infection carriers. In addition, factors such as humidity and dampness, non-observance of personal hygiene rules, and decrease in immunity contribute to introduction of fungus infection. Most often, the fungus affects the skin of the hands and feet. It is not uncommon for the infection to spread to the mucous membrane, nails and hair.

What are the types of fungal diseases?

Fungal lesions on skin areas can also develop in case of functional disorders of the leg vessels or their hypothermia or overheating, as well as from minor injuries, dry skin of feet, decreased immunity and endocrine system disorders.

Since there are 4 groups of fungal diseases (keratomycosis, dermatophytosis, candidiasis and deep mycoses) and they are all to a certain extent similar to each other in symptoms, the primary task for dermatologists is to identify a specific type of fungus. For this purpose, dermatologists perform comprehensive examination of the patient and study the results of a number of the scraping tests taken. After identifying a certain type of fungus, the patient is assigned an individual course of treatment, taking into account all the nuances of a specific diagnosis. Therapy can include both the use of external preparations (ointments, gels and shampoos), and safe pills, injections and physiotherapy.

Symptoms of fungal skin infection

Within a few days after infection, the presence of a fungus can be visually determined. The affected skin and mucous membrane begins to flake off, a characteristic rotting smell appears. Fungus-infected nails change color to yellow or brown. At the same time, they also exfoliate and become covered with nodes. As for the hair, they lose their shine and vitality, and characteristic yellowish or brown spots appear on the skin near the roots, which are constantly wet and covered with scabs.
