for you. Hello,
I’m Dr. Dhananjay Chavan, Cosmetic Dermatologist
And Hair Transplant Surgeon Clear Skin & Hair MD,
Pune. Since the past 4 to 5 years,
An epidemic of several superficial fungal infections
Started in India As a traditional dermatologist
or as a skin specialist We would treat
4-5 patients Facing fungal infections every day But
In the last 4-5 years
This has become a sort of national epidemic First, we’d only see a single member of
the family suffer from it, but now the entire family is suffering from it First, we’d use a basic antifungal or a
topical applicant cream, or a weekly pill. With 3 – 4 week’s treatment
and improved personal hygiene The patient would be cured But now treatment takes 1 – 2 month long strong
anti fungal pills and creams. Sometimes, even 3 month long expensive treatment
creams do not work This means that the infection spreads to family
members and even roommates. At the same time, the infection recurs. This is frustrating for the patient
and even for us doctors. We are quite shocked. Today, we are going to truly understand what
this problem is all about. In today’s video we will understand how,
where and why this infection occurs. We will also take a general informational
look at how dermatologists treat it. So watch the video till then end to really
understand the problem and how your dermatologist can help you cure it. Prevention is also important, so we will get
into how you can prevent it as well. We will also make a special video specifically
aimed at providing you with do’s and don’ts aimed at preventing fungal infections. So come, let’s finally discuss what this
superficial fungal infection is? What are the causes,
how we can treat it, cure it
and prevent the recurrence. Your skin’s
superficial fungal infection has several common symptoms. Shingles, itching, darkening and bumps are
common. This infection occurs in the folds and corners
of the body such as between the toes and in the inner thighs. That is how infections such as Jock Itch and
Athlete feet, as well as ringworm namely, occurs. But how does the infection happen? Look,
Fungus is present on everyone’s body
and all of our surrounding environment as well. It is super common. This fungus
Is on the upper surface of our skin It is part of your own skin’s original and
natural flora It is symbiotic to your skin’s flora
That means, they stay in cohabitation Our dead skin cells and skin debris is eaten
by this fungus To stay alive
But they have no negative effect on your skin This means, it is not pathological. But,
If the fungus has a favourable environment to live in
Then instead of living on our skin in a small and conservative number, they multiple in
number and thrive They become into a disease and start troubling
us If our own body hygiene
Is not good enough Or our skin is not cared enough well
Then the fungal infection increases All of you know that fungus
loves humidity, warmth,
moisture, wet surfaces,
dump areas , body folds,
And closed areas which are not exposed to much air
As they grow here in large numbers Macerated
dead skin Is ideal for fungus
where it divides faster and becomes pathological So let us take a look at what are the risk
factors for developing fungal infection? Fungus
grow in wet and humid climate India being a country
with a sea shore, Has high temperatures,
A hot climate, And a lot of rainfall
It is also a densely populated country with overcrowding cities,
Where there is hardly any space left A lot of people have moved to urban spaces
and cities to find better job prospects, and live in small-small rooms with several people
sharing it They end up travelling a lot to reach their
work places They sit in one place for too long in their
office spaces, especially all the IT sector professionals which are increasing in number Because of this, in the groin area
thighs And buttocks
Sweat collects tight jeans
And pants cut out aeration which triggers fungal infections Due to the humidity and heat,
While resting at home as well, fungus has the perfect environment to increase in People who do not work in good conditions
Who sweat a lot or are exposed to high levels of moisture and dampness are exposed to fungus
growth Coastal cities like
Mumbai, Chennai,
And Kolkata Have natural climates which worsen the problem
Using public transport facilities doesn’t help either as the flora of several people’s
skin keeps multiplying on the various surfaces of the bus and train On top of that, wearing tight and fashionable
clothes is on the rise. Materials like lycra, leather, and silicone
cut off oxygen supply to the skin from the outside which triggers fungal growth
Travelling on the two-wheeler especially during the rainy season makes your body a breeding
ground for fungus People who are sharing a room
with a lot of partners students
or workers many times
share beds, Clothes,
towels, And maybe even the soap
Are exposed to the flora of all of their skin and therefore, their fungus as well These days, gyms and fitness centres are on
a rise Bathing there, using equipment on which people
have sweat on, does not help the case Now,
In case of athletes And sportsmen,
Proper care must be taken as their clothes, shoes, socks, and play surfaces are filled
with their sweat Taking special care to clean their clothes,
equipment such as Their helmets,
hats, caps,
bands, And towels
Is crucial Body to body contact sports such as wrestling
And kabbadi also propagates fungal infections Children as well as overweight people tend
to sweat a lot and have chubby folds Body folds
especially axilla, neck,
below breast, waist
And the groin area The friction irritates the skin which worsens
the infection and helps it persist Unhygienic environments, damp closed area,
And macerated skin with no oxygen supply is perfect for the fungus Especially when it comes to women working
in water for a long time
Or home makers, Who end up washing a lot of surfaces and items
are exposed to several fungi Due to overcrowding,
And unhygienic conditions, while playing
And in classrooms due to close intimate contact
fungus transfers a lot Hair salons are another place this happens
which a lot of people do not realise Equipment is shared and if not cleaned properly
leads to fungal issues Friends, fungus mainly
Spreads in four different ways 1
human to human contact. 2
infected animal to human close contact 3
object to human. Such as with towel,
bedding, bedsheets,
shoes, socks, comb,
brushes, And soaps 4
Soil to human infection This not as common as the soil barely comes
in contact with human skin anymore unless the people involved are farmers or workers. But wet mud getting stuck in your nails does
cause fungal issues. Sometimes, if your body is diseased then it
automatically becomes A breeding ground for fungus
Diabetic patients HIV and AIDS patient,
with a weak immune system Tend to face severe fungal infections Patients taking
immunosuppressive drugs with low immunities Suffer from fungal infections too
Anaemic patients Patients with vitamin deficiency
weak people aged people,
And pregnant ladies, are more prone to fungal infections Taking long term oral antibiotics
And contraceptive pills are some drugs which worsen it These conditions and medicines suppress anti
fungal medication which makes such infections persist Everyone in India is tired and sick of this
Injudicious use of topical and oral steroids also triggers this
This is why incorrect and unprescribed drugs are a big no Steroids are great medicines, they can even
save lives, but not if they are used incorrectly when not required or in wrong doses A lot of skin diseases can be cured with the
help of them But simple superficial fungal infections do
not necessarily call for this Yet, patients can go purchase steroid containing
creams And pills from a shop conveniently without
a prescription which is dangerous General practitioners
doctors, And unqualified medical practitioners check
you skin and overall health and body before administering a steroid combination to you
which have an antifungal effect Same goes for antibiotic medicines
Do not listen to any friends and family although they might be well meaning when they tell
you which drugs worked for them as this is subjective and different for everyone. Ideally,
Such triple And multiple drugs
Are combined as per medical ethics to cure such infections but this is
up to your doctor to suggest and decide, not anyone else These rules are not followed in India which
worsens the fungal infection
epidemic Our Indian Association of Dermatology
Virology And Leprology
Also known as the IADVL Has also raised their voice regarding this
issue and raised awareness about it As per their guidance, topical steroid abuse
Awareness and its prevention has been made possible
Thank you IADVL for your guidance. So which steroid combination drugs are suitable? Usually,
We do not mention names of specific brands and companies
