Health professionals refer 10 fungal skin diseases as “tineas” and name them according to the region affected ( TABLE 23.1 ). Fungal skin diseases are persistent, in part because fungi can penetrate deeper layers of skin than can ointments and creams. There are fewer antifungal drugs than antibacterial ones, and antifungals often have more severe side effects. Reflect on the evolutionary relationships among bacteria, fungi, and humans. Why it is harder to fight fungi than bacteria? TABLE 23.1 Fungal Diseases of Skin Disease Infected Body Parts Tinea corporis (ringworm) Trunk, limbs Tinea pedis (athlete’s foot) Feet, toes Tinea capitis Scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes Tinea cruris (jock, itch) Groin, perianal area Tinea barbae Bearded areas Tinea unguium Toenails, fingernails

Summary Introduction

To explain: Why it is harder to fight fungi than bacteria.

Concept introduction: Fungi are the heterotrophic eukaryotic organisms with size ranging from microscopic yeasts to macroscopic mushrooms. Many of the members coming under the kingdom fungi have both beneficial and fatal role on human beings. Fungi like yeast and penicillin have a very crucial and beneficial role in economy. Though there are several economic uses of fungal members that exist, many are very dangerous to human beings. Fungal infections on the dermal layer of the skin are called as mycoses, and it is not so dangerous naturally, but in immune-suppressed people, it may lead to severe problems.

Explanation of Solution

The intensity of any kind of infection on the human body primarily depends on how healthy the person is and where in the body it is. Most of the fungal diseases are not serious, as it is cured soon but still there are several infections that will come again and again after the course of each medication. This is one of the major features associated with fungal infections as compared with bacterial disease.

Many of the fungus evade the bug detection systems in our body, which are imposed with the function of identifying bacteria and viruses, and they go deeper into the body so that it cannot be vanished by any ways...
