Fungal Infections

Any disease or condition resulting from a fungus (yeast or mold) most typically affects the skin, hair, nails, or mucous membranes when the immune system is weakened, or environmental changes occur.

What is it?

Fungal infections, such as ringworm, yeast infections, or athlete's foot, occur when a pathogen—a disease-causing organism—invades your body and proliferates in a specific area, overwhelming your immune system's defenses. Although most common on the skin and nails, these infections can also affect other areas such as the mouth, throat, lungs, urinary tract, and more. Furthermore, they tend to thrive in environments with moisture buildup or significant friction.

Although fungal infections can affect anyone, individuals with weakened immune systems, poor circulation, or certain underlying conditions like diabetes are particularly vulnerable. Symptoms typically include skin alterations, rash, skin cracking or peeling, and itching, often accompanied by redness, swelling, or bumps on the affected area.

How is it treated?

With numerous fungal infections existing, it's crucial to seek evaluation by our board-certified dermatologists if they don't resolve. If you suspect a fungal infection, our team in Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton, and Strongsville, Ohio can accurately diagnose and provide treatment using antifungal medications and topical remedies. These treatments combat the infection by eliminating or halting the fungus's growth within your body. Following a thorough assessment of your condition, we'll prescribe the appropriate treatment plan to deliver swift and effective results.
