How to improve superficial mycosis naturally with home remedies
The mycosis is a disease caused by fungi of microscopic size, belonging to the genera Trichophyton, Epidermophyton Y Microsporum, in addition to other fungi and yeasts as for example is the case of the so popular Candida albicans. It is called superficial mycosis when the part affected by this disease is the outer layer of the skin or epithelium.
In the case of superficial fungal infections, the fungi remain or are present on the skin, hair, nails, and in these cases the problems are often unsightly without causing inflammation.
In other cases when they are not kept on the surface or external part of the skin it can produce an inflammatory response that can be acute or chronic.
Anyone can suffer from mycosis at some time of rise and some factors may predispose us to suffer from mycosis such as the following details:
- Descent of defenses.
- Treatments with some antibiotics.
- Treatments with immunosuppressants.
- Stress, anxiety
- Tight clothes.
- Shoes tight and without perspiration.
- Lack of hygiene or insufficient hygiene.
There are times when superficial mycosis can become a serious or worrying problem, when it affects people with diabetes or with low defenses. Mycosis is contagious and if it is not treated early it can spread and infect other areas of the body.
The fungi responsible for causing mycosis develop under the nails, between the fingers, anywhere on the skin, in the folds of the body, on the scalp, in the vagina.
Symptoms depending on the affected area may be itching, redness and alopecia.
