Nail fungus (hands, feet). Mikozy skin

Mycoses are a group of diseases of the skin, caused by different fungi. Many diseases have similar, Although there are differences in the ways of infection and symptoms, that manifest these diseases. Principles of treatment of all fungal diseases similar.

Fungal diseases of the skin and nails belong to the class of infectious human diseases, that cause the pathogenic fungi. Fungal infection (mycosis) There are different, but the damage to the skin and nails are one of the most common Mycosis. This is an infectious disease, that is passed from person to person.

Breed fungi in a neutral or weakly alkaline Wednesday. The most suitable pH value is 6 — 6,7. Need to allocate, What is the pH value of the skin of a healthy person is 5,5 (acidic environment is not favorable for fungus), which is one of the factors of human skin protection against fungal infections. Increased sweating is just a risk factor with fungi, just on the closed areas of the skin, where the evaporation of sweat is very difficult, Here it is here and develop certain diseases accompanied by fungi shift skin pH to the alkaline side.

Fungi easily survive low temperatures. They do not die, and retain the ability to provoke the development of the disease even after freezing. Elevated temperatures conversely detrimental effect on fungi. Wetted with heat 75 degrees within 15 minutes provokes their death. When boiling fungi die within 3-5 minutes. So fever could be applied when fungal diseases as a way of sanitizing, in the context of, to prevent the recurrence of disease, during and after full cure antifungal doctors strongly recommend to boil and to iron a hot iron underwear and clothes, that was in contact with the skin.

For reproduction and growth of fungi need a wet Wednesday. That is why increased sweating and wet shoes are conducive factors formation of fungal diseases, and the main way of infection fungi stop are swimming pools, baths and showers, wet floor which, fungi are finding very good conditions for its existence. Fungi, human Mycosis pathogens, good going through drying. It does not kill them, but only some time delays or stops their growth and development. In dry hair and scales, which the patient loses with pockets of surface damage, fungi retain viability for years (for example, on the floor or carpets, in clothing or footwear). Entering subsequently in suitable conditions (for example, on human skin), they acquire the ability to grow and reproduce and can cause the formation of disease.

In 1% solution of formalin fungi are killed through 15-20 minutes (It is used to disinfect shoes). In a solution of chloramine loss fungi comes through 30-40 minutes (use to disinfect items).

In addition to pathogenic fungi, with the penetration which human skin disease develops with a great opportunity, almost always, There is a large group of conditionally pathogenic fungi, parasitic activity which is celebrated only in people with weakened defensive functions of the body.

Fungi infection occurs through contact directly from an infected person or animal (the straight path of infection used at the ill, either infected with scales or hairs of sick animals (indirect way). The most significant factor in the formation of fungal skin diseases is the age. Set, that favus, known to the wider population, called "ringworm" infects mainly children of pre-school and primary school age and rarely occurs in adults.

Another group of fungal diseases — mikozy feet and nail fungus, conversely, infects mainly adults and rarely occurs in children, that has its justification and is associated with age-related changes in the pH of the skin, the thickness and structure of the stratum corneum of the epidermis, weak immune protection and skin resistance against the background of emerging disease with age. Very important for the formation of fungal disease is changing the metabolism, which is associated with obesity, other endocrine disorders and primarily with diabetes, diseases of the adrenal glands, thyroid gland, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, causing changes in digestion and absorption of nutrients.
