Fungal infections are infection which usually begins in lungs or on the skin which progress slowly and rarely serious unless immune system gets weekend. When immune system gets weekend it can be very aggressive and can be spread quickly.
There are two kinds of fungal infections: ringworm and yeast infections. Fungal infections are quite common and can be painful and uncomfortable.
- Ringworm is found anywhere on the body, including the scalp and inside the mouth. It is commonly known as jock itch when on the genitals and athlete’s foot when on the feet and is highly contagious.
- Yeast infections are not contagious but also can appear anywhere on the body, though they are more likely to occur in the armpits, groin, nail beds, inside the mouth (known as thrush) and vagina.
