What is a fungal infection?
Fungal infections are not only common in india, but also throughout the world. Our immune system saves us from much of the troubles caused by microbes, bacteria, etc. However, a fungal infection occurs when an area of our body is overtaken by an invading fungus, the capacity of which becomes too much for the immune system to handle. The fungus grows best in a warm and moist climate which increases the cases of fungal infections in summers & rainy season.
Infections involving tinea (name of a group of diseases caused by a fungus) are usually not serious, however, they can be pretty uncomfortable. The types of tinea include ringworm, athlete’s foot & jock itch. The seriousness of fungal infections varies from one type to another.

Causes of fungal infection
Fungal infections are contagious and can be caused due to a variety of reasons like-
• Touching an infected person
• Damp climate
• Wearing tight clothing and tight shoes
• Using community baths and pools

Symptoms
A fungal infection can make the affected area red, itchy, raw, dry or inflamed. It can also result in the peeling of the skin and can cause a burning sensation.

Some types of tinea infections
Tineacruris: also known as ‘jock itch’, tineacruris mainly affects the genitals, groin or upper thigh. It is characterized as a red rash with raised borders that may be scaly. These rashes are usually accompanied by burning and itching. Wearing close-fitting underwear (chaffing) can worsen the problem.
Tineacorporis: tineacorporis usually occurs on the skin with fine hair. It mostly affects areas like- trunk, arms, and legs.
Tineacapitis: tineacapitis occurs on the scalp. It can result in itching and scaling on the infected area.

General care & precautions for patients with tinea infections
1. Wash your clothes, bed sheets, towels, and caps separately. Don’t share any of these articles with others.
2. Always wear washed and sun-dried clothes.
3. Wear loose clothes and garments.
4. Wear cotton clothes.
5. Avoid wearing jeans/denim. However, if you do need to wear one, make sure it’s washed.
6. Wash your clothes in hot water preferably.
7. Avoid using public toilets.
8. Avoid coming in contact with pets and street animals.
9. Avoid taking hot water baths.
10. Even if your body shows improvement, don’t stop taking your medicines regularly in order to avoid the reoccurrence of infections.
11. Being a contagious disease, fungal infection can be caught even after you have been cured completely. So make sure if any family member is also suffering from fungal infection, they are treated simultaneously.



Hair treatmments:


1. Prp- platelet rich plasma therapy
It is a highly sought after non-surgical procedure for stimulating hair growth on the scalp.

Mechanism
It uses your own blood platelets (blood cells) to stimulate new cell growth. It has certain growth factors which stimulate the hair cells, improving their density.

Procedure
Depending on the area treated, a volume of blood is taken. This is usually between 10 to 30 ml. The blood is centrifuged for 15-20 minutes. Once the concentrated platelets are separated from the whole blood, they are injected into the skin of the scalp. The procedure takes around 1-1.5 hrs.

What should you expect post treatment?
The patient can have mild swelling or redness for a few hours. There is no pain after the procedure and the patient can resume his/her normal activities soon after the procedure.
3-4 sessions are required for visibly good results at a gap of 4-6 weeks.

Who all the candidates for prp?
Any patient can undergo prp therapy who wants to improve on their hair density. It is not recommended for patients on anticoagulation therapy or autoimmune conditions.

Advantages of prp
• Non-surgical therapy
• No downtime
• No need to go bald (as in hair transplantation)
• Absolutely safe & free of side effects.
