Skin Fungus has always been a common issue among almost everyone, regardless of age. Fungi’s ability to live everywhere makes it virtually inevitable.
The existence of fungi on our skin may sometimes be unnoticed due to the relatively small amount. However when left untreated, these can reproduce and cause athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm or yeast infections. Although these pose no danger, they usually bring discomfort.
Knowing how you get fungal infection makes preventing it easier.
Among the most common reasons behind the infection is the sharing of clothes and personal hygiene products with someone who may already be infected.
Those usually at risk of getting infected are:
-Those who usually sweat heavily.
-Those with weak immune systems.
-Those who interact with people who are already infected, namely doctors and nurses.
-Those taking antibiotics or immune suppressants over a long time.
-Those who cannot stop themselves from urinating.
