What is fungus infection of the finger and toe areas?
General speaking, common fungus infections of the finger and toe areas (topical infections) are caused by a variety of fungi: actual living organisms (members of the yeast and mold family) which exist in varying degrees, at all times in nature, and tend to thrive in dark, damp and moist conditions... in the soil... on animals as well as humans. These organisms may penetrate the skin's surface through even the smallest crack or tear, may be spread among humans. Once infection starts, spreading may occur among body parts... one toe to another... or finger to finger. There are a number of specific types, each of which can potentially infect body tissue and proceed to grow unless treated appropriately with an effective anti-fungal medicine. Common topical fungi infective generally fall into three categories: microsporum (hair and skin), epidermophyton (skin and nails), and trichophton (hair, skin and nails). Among them the more common fungi is E. floccosum which can cause ringworm infection and affects the body, hands and feet, on and in between the fingers including the skin around the fingernails, also T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes which can cause athlete's foot and infect the feet, on and between the toes including the skin around toenails. Often such infections develop slowly and may be difficult to treat if not attended to promptly.
How do you know if you have a topical fungus infections?
Some topical fungal infections may present themselves on the skin as ringlike formations with clear centers, commonly referred to as ringworm. Other such infections, when in the finger and toe areas are often characterized by scaling of skin, burning, cracking, itching and related discomforts. When nails become infected they may appear to become opaque (cloudy white), thickened, brittle, friable (easily broken) and in some cases, discolored (greenish/brown).
Note: If you believe you may have any type of fungus infection, do not delay consulting a doctor for advice. You may wish to show him/her Fungi-Cide and discuss its use.
