Infection of the skin with fungal diseases is a common occurrence, occurring in fifty percent of people. Several decades ago, the fungus was practically incurable. Modern ointments achieve excellent results in the treatment of this disease.
Classification of mycoses
All fungal diseases, regardless of the species, are called mycoses. They are classified by type as follows:
Epidermophytosis of the feet is a disease that develops exclusively on the legs.
Dermatophytosis is an inflammatory focus in the form of a circle or circle of uneven shape, in the center of which the skin is light, and along the edge with a reddish tint. The danger of a fungus is that it can infect internal organs.
Rubrophytosis is a disease that affects the skin of the feet, nails and hair.
Antifungal agents are aggressive medicines that, if misused, can cause irreparable harm to human health. Potent drugs are used for advanced diseases. When skin lesions are minor, it is recommended to use local remedies - creams, varnishes or ointments.
All ointments have low toxicity, high efficiency and good tolerance by the body. There are about two hundred types of pharmaceuticals. In order to choose the right one, you need to contact a specialist who will analyze the immune and endocrine systems and prescribe the optimal remedy for treatment.
Antifungal ointments are considered safe pharmaceuticals, as they act directly on the lesion without entering the bloodstream. For skin diseases, it is recommended to use them for up to four weeks, and for lesions with nail fungus - up to three months. These funds include: "Nuksenar", "Lamisil", "Exifin", "Mikoseptin", "Ifenek", "Nizoral", "Cyclopirox", "Imafucin" and "Totsiklat".
"Nuksenar" is a drug that, in addition to antifungal effect, has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antiherpetic properties.
"Lamisil" is a broad spectrum agent intended for the treatment of diseases of the skin, mucous membranes, hair and nails.
"Exifin" is a medicine for the treatment of dermatophytosis and other mycotic diseases of the body and head.
"Mikosiptin" is a drug for local treatment of infected areas, rarely causing adverse reactions.
"Ifinek" is an antifungal and antibacterial agent applied directly to lesions.
Whichever drug is chosen, it must be applied according to the instructions for use, on pre-cleansed skin. And the best remedy against fungal diseases is preventive measures.
