Unveiling Fungal Infections

Fungal infections result from the overgrowth of fungi on the skin, nails, or internal organs. Common types include athlete’s foot, ringworm, and yeast infections. They thrive in warm, moist environments and can spread through direct contact or contaminated surfaces. Symptoms vary depending on the type and location of the infection but may include itching, redness, and swelling. Treatment typically involves antifungal medications and proper hygiene practices to prevent recurrence.
