Fungal skin infections are caused by fungii like tinea and candida, which live on plants, in the dirt, on household surfaces or on the skin.
Fungal infections can be treated using fungus infection creams, ointments and suppositories. In case of severe infection, a doctor may presrcibe oral medication as well. ANti-fungal foot powders and washes can be used to prevent fungus as well. They are commonly sold in tropical countries, where the humid climate becomes a breeding ground for fungii.
Fungal infections aren't necessarily life threatening. However, if left untreated, symptoms can get worse and cause a lot of discomfort to patients.
If left untreated, fungal infections can spread to other nearby parts and infect deeper layers of the skin. Some are also contagious and can cause other people to contract the same fungus.
It usually takes about a week for a fungal infection to clear up if medication is used religiously for two weeks.
