fungal infection treatment in Delhi

Have you been in contact with a fungus that has taken over your body systems?

Fungal infections can be bothersome but thankfully several effective fungal infection treatments in Delhi are available.

 

Skin is the outermost layer of the body that protects the organs from most microbial infections. Fungal infections (contagious infections) are caused in humans when a fungus (present in the soil, animal, or another infected person) enters into a healthy individual's body. Many of the fungi are not harmful, but some spore-forming fungi can lead to human infections through tiny spores that penetrate the skin.

At Dadu Medical Centre, we put a great emphasis on first identifying the type of fungal infection for providing the right and most effective Fungal Infection Treatment in Delhi.

1. Tinea pedis: It takes place in between the toes/sole leading to skin peeling, itchiness, redness, burning, and flaking. In a few cases, it can lead to blisters formation and dry or scaly feet. This skin ailment is caused by a fungus that can survive in warm and humid conditions such as

5. Tinea unguium: It is a nail infection that initially has spotted nails but, if severe, can lead to a change in shape and discolored nails.

What are the best fungal infection treatments in Delhi? 
The best fungal infection doctor in Delhi, Dr. Nivedita Dadu at Dadu Medical Centre, will first examine the skin condition. Depending on the diagnosis she suggests the best fungal infection treatments in Delhi. Diagnosis is always clinical by a qualified dermatologist in Delhi but in rare cases where the problem is modified due to certain reason, it is determined by scraping out a part of the affected skin and observing it under the microscope. This helps to find out the type of fungus growing on the skin.

Following are the treatments available at Dadu Medical Centre, the best fungal infection treatment clinic in Delhi:

 

1. Antifungal oral tablets

 

2. Topical medications 
Such as antifungal creams or ointments, sprays, shampoos, gels, lotions, or solutions. The antifungal medications work by either stopping the fungal growth in their suitable environment or by killing it, says the best fungal infection treatment doctor in Delhi. 

 

3. Laser treatment 
This releases high light energy that generates heat. When transferred to the patient's skin, this heat can result in the killing or destruction of fungus without causing any damage to the nearby tissues. It is only done when oral medication cannot be given to the patient due to several reasons and the patient is the right fit for the laser session. It is one of the latest and most effective fungal infection treatments in Delhi.
