The Borneo Post - Nature and health - - Eq -

WORLD­WIDE, the in­crease of in­va­sive fun­gal in­fec­tions due to Aspergillus and Can­dida species are con­tribut­ing to the con­cern. Due to Malaysia’s cli­mate be­ing hot and hu­mid through­out the year, it be­comes a very com­mon prob­lem in­vad­ing all of us. Fun­gal in­fec­tions of the skin, hair and nails are a com­mon pub­lic health prob­lem. There­fore, it must be treated right away lest they worsen.

So, what is fun­gal in­fec­tion? Fun­gal or my­cotic in­fec­tion is a con­di­tion in which fungi in­vade through the re­sis­tance bar­ri­ers of hu­man body and grow in dead ker­atin, a pro­tein that makes up your skin, hair and nails. It is caused by dif­fer­ent types of fungi and of­ten leads to brit­tle, cracked nail and scaly, itchy skin, for ex­am­ple ath­lete’s foot, jock itch, ring­worm, white spots and nail fun­gal in­fec­tion. It is highly in­fec­tious, con­ta­gious and can be eas­ily seen on the skin. The preva­lence of skin fun­gal in­fec­tions is ex­pected to reach 20-25 per cent of the world’s pop­u­la­tion and its in­ci­dence con­tin­ues to in­crease! Peo­ple al­ways think that skin fun­gal in­fec­tion mainly af­fects el­derly. In fact, the in­fected group is get­ting younger in age.

Nail fun­gal in­fec­tion (on­chomy­co­sis) is one of the fun­gal in­fec­tions that ac­counts for about 50 per cent of all nail dis­or­ders and af­fects toe­nails con­sid­er­ably more of­ten than fin­ger­nails.

It is im­por­tant to treat nail fun­gal in­fec­tions be­cause it is an in­fec­tion that does not re­solve spon­ta­neously. Be­sides it may cause pain and can sub­stan­tially re­duce the qual­ity of life of pa­tients.

It may get worsen and spread to other un­in­fected lo­ca­tions (other nails or to the sur­round­ing skin) if it is left un­treated.

At present, nail re­moval and oral ad­min­is­tra­tion of an­ti­fun­gals are com­monly used op­tions for the treat­ment of nail fun­gal in­fec­tions. How­ever, nail re­moval is not rec­om­mended with­out physi­cians’ ad­vices. Be­sides, nail fun­gal in­fec­tion is dif­fi­cult to cure com­pletely be­cause it re­quires a long pe­riod of com­pli­ance! There­fore, top­i­cal treat­ments are en­cour­aged.
