Unlike the other infections, fungal infections are rarely contagious. They occur in the environment and usually begin with similar symptoms as other illnesses. Although they are not contagious, they are more common in people with weakened immune systems. Knowing how to spot a fungal infection is important for prompt treatment. Here are some tips for identifying a fungal infection. Listed below are some common symptoms that you should look for. A rash, redness, or puss-filled sores are all signs of a fungal infection.
A yeast infection or athlete’s foot infection are caused by fungi. Fungi are primitive organisms that live in the soil, air, and even on plants. Although most fungi are harmless, a few species are harmful. These fungi reproduce through spores, which land on the skin and lungs. Those with weakened immune systems are more prone to contract fungal infections than healthy people. To prevent the fungi from causing serious illness, you should take antibiotics or take certain medications.
To make sure that you don’t have a fungal infection, your physician will conduct a blood test. This will look for antibodies produced by the body’s immune system and antigens – molecules from foreign substances that cause an immune response. The physician will also look for other signs of fungus infection, such as the presence of a fungal growth on the skin. Those symptoms are signs of a more severe infection.
