Fungal Infections

Fungal infections are one of the most commonly encountered skin problem in day to day practice. Now a days, they are taking a lot more time in getting treated. Due to the rampant misuse of over the counter topical creams and medicines, fungal infections are more widespread.

  2. High humidity: Hot weather causing increased sweating and certain occupations like cooks, drivers, athletes etc who work in high humidity conditions are more predisposed to fungal infections.

  3. Wearing tight and synthetic clothes also have an increased risk of infection.

  4. Diabetes and immunosuppression patients are at more risk of developing the infection.
