Fungal Infections (Patient Counselling Guide)
05 Jun 2020
Fungal infections are generally mild and commonly affect the outer layer of the skin, nails and hair. Fungi that commonly cause infections include dermatophytes (eg, tinea), yeasts (eg, candida) and molds. The symptoms and the appearance of the infection depend on the causative organism and the site of the infection. Some may appear red, scaly and itchy, while others may appear like dry skin. In some cases, the fungal infection may involve deeper layers of the skin or the whole body, especially in patients whose immune system is compromised.
