Fungal/Fangal Infections, Itching in Head/Scalp & Beard – Treatment || Dr Vijaylaxmi Singh


hi friends today we are going to talk about the fungal infection of head and of the beard. The fungal infection of head is called tinea capitis and the fungal infection of beard is called tinea barbae this we can get from each other by close contact that is why it is common in families and in schools in family we use each other’s towel brushes combs pillows etc and pass on the infection from one person to another similarly at school children are in close contact with each other and they pick up infection from each other the fungus infection of the scalp is more common amongst the school-going children and there are sometimes outbreak of this infection in the school similarly the fungal infection of beard is more common amongst young men what does a fungal infection of scalp and beard look like generally there are patches in which there is a complete or partial hair loss. The hair in that area if there are any become brittle and break off and also there is inflammation and itching in those patches in the infection of the beard there is generally a superimposed bacterial infection and there there are small boils and a lot of oozing also. Both these infection caused a considerable amount of itching. There can be just one or two patches of this infection or there can be many patches in the scalp or beard of such a fungal infection at the outset let me tell you that fungal infection of the scalp and beard require oral antifungal treatment. This does not get completely healed with local antifungal cream. The oral antifungal medicines that you take for scalp and beard infection are GRISEOFULVIN FLUCONAZOLE or TERBINAFINE tablets let your doctor decide the dosage and duration of this treatment. The treatment has to be taken at least for four to six weeks non-stop along with oral antifungal medicines you can always use antifungal creams which will help a lot the way to use them is again apply them twice a day onto the affected area for at least two to four weeks or till the infection heals completely and the hair start regrowing. The antifungal creams that you can use is MICONAZOLE or CLOTRIMAZOLE cream. Along with these creams you can also wash your hair and beard with 2% ketoconazole lotion. The way to use it is that wet your beard or your scalp and apply the 2% ketoconazole lotion generously into it. Leave it for five minutes and then wash it off with warm water thoroughly. This should be done daily for at least two weeks thereafter twice a week for another two weeks and then once a week for two to three months. This will prevent recurrence of the infection another thing that you must do when you have such an infection is to keep your hair well trimmed and your beard also very well trimmed but do not shave because shaving scrapes the skin and can help in spreading the infection. So friends I hope my videos helped you. If you have any questions please put it in the comment box thank you

    Dear doctor thank you for your helpful video. I have a question I would be happy if you answer. I already have skin fungal infections for a long time. I wanted to know if it is possible for the fungal infections to also infect interior parts of body such as lungs, blood stream, liver and other organs? And if it is no longer only a skin infection, what should I do? How to cure that? Any medicine?

  • Priyanka Sharma says:

    I am 23 years old & I have been suffering from scalp fungal infection since 2008 and I have been taking the treatment since 2016 and my doctor told me this can not be cured. Is it really incurable?
    The medicines you have recommended in your video he doesn't prescribed any of them
    Instead the oral medicine s he prescribed is:
    Zocon 400mg
    Ntfung 200 mg
    The problem is….it is spreading all over my forehead and eyebrows and he told me in winter season it will spread he gave me the cream:
    Aclosol
    & Lotions:
    Onabet lotion
    Ultitar CS lotion
    All of them are ineffective & also my scalp is oily and hair is dry he made me stop using any kind of oil .
    Please help me out I have tried everything to cure it and before I have long curly hair and my hair has volume now my hairs are brittle and weak and it breaks very easily and now I lost my volume I changed my diet but that also doesn't help much..
    I am in depression due to this I don't know what to do… I can't style my hair I have to tie my hair all the time and I am missing all the stuff I have planned for…
    Also I am using shampoo
    Fungicide
    Protar-K

  • christina N says:

    Excellent video, very informative. If a young girl had a fungal infection in her scalp & took the required medicines ; Is it possible for a fungus to live in the hair follicle after many years, & damage the hair in those areas? Hair in the two areas where the fungus once were are very weak. The hair breaks off consistently no matter how well the hair is cared for. The hair is dry & brittle & a different texture from the other hair on the head. My daughter is desperate to find out what is causing this. She has been to trichologists, several dermatologists& other physicians to no avail. She has tried diet, vitamin supplements, hair & scalp preparations, you name it & she has tried it. I hope you can shed some light on what this may be. Thank you in advance.
