Fungal infections arise from yeast, molds, and other fungal types. Although most fungi are harmless, a few can lead to diseases, particularly in opportunistic situations such as weakened immune systems. Common fungi causing infections include:

  • Dermatophytes: These fungi rely on keratin found in hair, nails, and outer skin layers, causing no harm to living tissue.
  • Candida: Candida albicans, a usually benign yeast residing on the body, can overgrow, resulting in itching and redness and rarely leading to severe infections.
  • Environmental fungi from soil or water, like Histoplasma, Coccidioides, Blastomyces, and Aspergillus, can also cause infections.

FAQs About Fungal Infections

How do doctors treat fungal infections?

Doctors treat fungal infections via antifungal medications appropriate for the severity and the infection site. For mild symptoms, they suggest low-potency over-the-counter medications. For severe infections, high-strength antifungal medications are prescribed. Consult our doctors at Your Doctors Online for the treatment of your fungal infections.

How to treat fungal infections without going to the doctor?

Fungal infections can be treated at home by consulting an online doctor for prescription and treatment. You can consult with our doctors at Your Doctors Online for the treatment and prescription of fungal infections.

Why is it difficult to treat fungal infections?

Fungal infections are treated with antifungals, but if the course is not completed, the fungus develops resistance over it, and the infection persists even with the medication.

Can fungi be treated with antibiotics?

Fungal infections are caused by a fungus, which requires antifungals for the treatment, not antibiotics. Antibiotics only target bacterial infections. Using antibiotics for fungal infections is unnecessary.

What are the best treatments for face fungal infections?

For facial fungal infections, most providers prescribe topical ointments and creams. A doctor may recommend antifungals with higher potency if the infection is severe. Consult our doctors at Your Doctors Online for the treatment and prescription of facial antifungals.

Are there over-the-counter treatments available for fungal skin infections?

Some over-the-counter medications can be administered for acute infections, like zinc pyrithione soap, selenium sulfide 1% lotion, clotrimazole cream, terbinafine, or miconazole. Note that these antifungals are low in strength and can only treat mild infections. Their stronger counterparts with higher potency and effectiveness are available upon prescription at Your Doctors Online.

Is it necessary to consult a doctor for the treatment of fungal infections?

Over-the-counter antifungals can help for mild infections, but for severe infections, you need more potent antifungals available on prescription only. You can consult a doctor at Your Doctors Online for the prescription of appropriate antifungals for your condition.

What are the potential complications of untreated fungal infections?

Fungal infections, if severe, can cause many complications, including permanent skin damage and even death in case of infection in the brain. Consult our doctors at Your Doctors Online for the treatment and prescription of fungal infections.

What is the standard duration of treatment for fungal infections?

To treat fungal infections, a window of two weeks is a standard duration. However, it takes 4-6 weeks to recover from the skin and hair infection.

What is the best approach to treating treatment-resistant fungal infections?

Amphotericin B is effective in people who are resistant to common antifungal medications. Antifungal resistance is most common in people with compromised immune systems. The most effective antifungals, like fluconazole and echinocandin, don’t work on people with compromised immunity.
