Fungal Infectious Diseases

A fungus is a multi-cellular parasite which can decompose and then absorb organic matter using enzymes. There are approximately 51 million kinds of fungus present on earth.

Many fungal infections appear on the upper layers of the skin, and some progress to the deeper layers as well. Inhaling fungal spores can also lead to systemic fungal infections, such as thrush, or candidiasis.

Individuals with a higher risk of developing a fungal infection, includes people who:

  • Use antibiotics for a long time.
  • Having a weak Immune system. For example: HIV or AIDS, Diabetes, Chemotherapy Treatment, and those who have undergone organ transplantation, as they take medications to prevent their body from rejecting the new organ transplanted.
