Uses of TERBI+ Tablet
Description of Fungal infections
Fungal infections, commonly known as mycoses, are common infections that may cause redness, itching and sometimes blisters. A fungus is a primitive organism. Mushrooms, mold, and mildew are examples. Fungi live in the air, in soil, on plants, and in water. Some live 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 for serious infections.
