The main ways of infection with fungal infections


In the environment there is always a huge number of infectious agents, including tho

se causing skin diseases. Many people have heard of microscopic fungi. In the normal state of the immune system, the body successfully copes with the infection, but in some places the concentration of fungi is so great that even a completely healthy person can become infected.

Children are more susceptible to infection than adults, since their immunity is in the formative stage. A child can pick up an infection in a sports hall, public bathhouse, swimming pool, school, health camp. Some types of mycosis are able to be transmitted to children in contact with domestic or homeless animals. When digging in the ground or sandbox, you can also pick up mycosis.

In case of malfunctions in the immune system, one spot (maternal) appears on the skin first, after which a lot of small plaques appear around it. The face and wrinkles on the body are often affected. In addition to aesthetic discomfort, the patient does not bring any other unpleasant sensations. Treatment is usually not required.
  4. Ringworm (trichophytosis). One of the most contagious types of cutaneous mycoses. Most often affected areas of the body, covered with hair (head, groin, armpits). At the site of penetration of the fungal infection, a pinkish spot with clear boundaries is formed. It is through him that you can recognize this kind of mycosis. Hair becomes brittle and begins to fall out. The patient is troubled by severe itching. The skin is peeling off. These are the main signs. Children become infected with ringworm from stray dogs or sick peers. Unpleasantness can occur with every baby, because contagiosity reaches 90%.
