What are Fungal Infections?
Fungal diseases, also known as Mycoses, are caused by fungi that are common in the environment. A fungus is a primitive organism that lives in air, soil, plants, water, and the human body. Because fungi live in almost everything, it is very easy for anyone to contract a fungal infection in varying extremes. A mild skin fungal infection can look like a rash or a common condition called “athlete’s foot”, while some can affect the lungs and bloodstream causing diseases such as the flu and tuberculosis.
