Fungal Infections

Fungus is a primitive vegetable and is responsible for athlete's foot and yeast infections such as candida. Fungi live in air, in soil, on plants and in water as well as in the human body. Only about half of all types of fungi are harmful.

Some fungi reproduce through tiny spores in the air. You can inhale the spores or they can land on you. As a result, fungal infections often start in the lungs or on the skin. You are more likely to get a fungal infection if you have a weakened immune system or take antibiotics.

Fungi can be difficult to kill. For skin and nail infections, you can apply medicine directly to the infected area. Oral antifungal medicines are also available from your GP for serious infections.
