fungal infection

The proliferation and damage of fungi in tissues and organs is called fungal infection. Since fungi are the simplest creatures, heat, moisture and nutrients are sufficient for their reproduction.

Superficial fungal infections:Trauma or injury to the tissues that we call the mucous membrane that covers our internal organs, including the skin and mouth of the fungi.
can occur as a result of their settlement and reproduction.

Systemic fungal infections:By inhalation of fungal cells and settling in the lung tissue and transported to other organs via the blood.
can occur.

What are the transmission routes of fungi?

Human-to-human transmission: It occurs as a result of direct contact or the use of shared objects. Especially collective life such as barracks, dormitories, Turkish baths and saunas.
It occurs due to reasons such as direct contact with the common towels, slippers, and mushrooms in the areas.

Animal-to-human transmission:Infection in animals can be transmitted to humans by contact.

Soil-to-human transmission:This type of transmission is especially common in those who are engaged in agriculture and those who have contact with the soil.

Infection can occur in anyone who encounters a fungal cell.

Factors that increase the risk in particular:
Malnutrition and malnutrition
taking long-term antibiotic therapy
Having diseases that impair the immune system, such as AIDS, cancer
Being in childhood and advanced ages where immunity is not sufficiently formed
using alcohol
Presence of diseases that cause circulatory system insufficiency such as diabetes

Ways to prevent fungus:
Paying attention to hygiene, not using common items, changing shoes and socks frequently, preventing humidity and body cleaning.
is one of the most important measures. In order to prevent contact in crowded living areas, not touching the ground with bare feet is another precautionary method.
