Tinea Treatment in Delhi
Hot, damp, and raised humidity in the monsoon hosts fungal infection woes!
A round, scaly, crusted patch on the skin, often known as ringworm is a debilitating skin condition. It is characterized by itching, pain, and blister-like lesions on the sides, and red pale skin on the center. The infection may affect the skin of the scalp, elbows, feet, groin, beard, or other areas. If you are experiencing a fungal infection, get a consultation with our dermatologists.
What is Tinea?
Tinea (ringworm) is a contagious fungal infection that affects the skin, hair, or nails. Despite its name, ringworm has no connection to worms! Tinea is a skin condition caused by a group of fungi known as dermatophytes which can affect the outer layer of skin, nails, and hair, feeding on keratin, a protein found in these tissues.
Tinea (Ringworm) is highly contagious and can be passed from person to person by contact with infected skin areas or by sharing personal care items, or clothing.
Note: It can occur in people of all ages but is particularly common in children.
Procedure of Tinea Treatment
Some key factors contributing to fungi development on the skin can be:
- Exposure to warm and humid weather.
- Sweating excessively (hyperhidrosis).
- Excessive oily skin.
- Skin-to-skin contact with an infected individual.
- Sharing personal items like towels, clothing, or sports equipment, etc.
The approach to treating ringworm is tailored by examining the extent of infection, location of ringworm, discomfort, and severity. Medication for ringworm involves the use of localized antifungal agents, available in various forms such as gels, sprays, creams, and ointments.
In extreme cases, where the infection has spread to areas like nails or scalp, oral medications may be prescribed for faster healing.
Here are some effective prevention tips to help you avoid tinea infections:
- Avoid sharing personal items with friends and family.
- Use sunscreen to protect from direct sun exposure.
- Keep the infected area clean and dry.
- Wear loose clothing.
- Don’t apply oily lotions and moisturizers.
- Change out of wet or sweaty clothes.
Pro Tip: Incorporate antifungal powder into your daily routine.
