Mycosis RINGWORM Ringworm, or tinea, is a skin infection that can stem from communal bathrooms and nail salons. It is a circular, red, itchy rash that can affect multiple parts of the body. It is treated with antifungal medications and creams. There are multiple types of ringworm. It can infect the feet (pedis), scalp (capitis), hands (manuum), groin (cruris), arms and legs (corposis), and face (barbae). It can cause blistering, swelling, peeling, itching, red or bald spots, crusted spots filled with pus, and scaliness. CANDIDIASIS Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by yeasts. These yeasts normally live in your body on the skin of mucous membranes, but when there is an overgrowth, they cause infection. There are many types of candidiasis, including thrush (mouth), genital/vulvovaginal, and invasive candidiasis. Thrush usually occurs in babies and the elderly or people with weakened immune systems. It causes white, sores in the mouth and pain with swallowing. It also causes cracks in the corners of the mouth and bleeding. Prevention of this is having good oral hygiene. It is treated with antifungal medications such as flucanozole. If it is left untreated, it can get into your bloodstream. Nystatin can help get rid of it. Genital/vulvovaginal is also called a yeast infection. It occurs in over 75% of adult women. It is caused by an imbalance of hormones or acidity and overgrowth of the yeast. It causes itching, burning, and a cottage cheese like discharge. Treatment includes a one time dosage of an antifungal medication, and creams and depositories. Prevention of this includes probiotics. Invasive candidiasis enters the bloodstream and the infection becomes systemic. Treatment requires an oral or IV antifungal medication. ASPERGILLOSIS Aspergillosis is a fungal infection caused by the mold, Aspergillus. It lives inside and outside and most people breathe it in without symtoms. People with weakened Immune systems are susceptible tot this. Symptoms include allergy symptoms and respiratory symptoms (lung infections) and infections in other organs. You get this from breathing in the spores of the mold or from spores entering skin through a break. It tends to remain in the upper respiratory tract and lungs. Overtime, if untreated, it can cause respiratory capacity to be diminished because the alveoli pop. There are many types of aspergillosis including bronchopulmonary, sinusitis, aspergilloma (fungus ball), chronic pulmonary aspergillosis, invasive, and cutaneous aspergillosis. Resp problems, cough up blood, weight loss, etc. It is treated by antifungal medicaitons and corticosteroids which are bronchodilators. TRYPANOSOMA Trypanosoma is a protist that switches the surface proteins of RBCs so it can go undetected. Trypanasoma cruzi is caused by mosquitos and is mostly in poverty stricken areas. Cracks of homes. Children. Defecates on opening of skin and replicates in blood stream. Acute phase- 2 months, flu-like symptoms; chronic- invades cardiovascular system and eats away and muscle; congestive heart failure and breaking down of smooth muscle of GI tract. Treatment-antifungal meds such as benzidazole and nifurtimox. HYPER AND HYPOTHYROIDISM Hyper- too high levels of iodine, take supplements, eat kelp, weight loss, always hot, tackycardia, arsenic in kelp, goiter, need radiation Hypo- too low levels of iodine, supplements to tweak thyroid, weight gain, always cold, goiter, 70% of women COCCIDIOSIS Parasitic infection caused by coming into contact with infected feces. Common in dogs. Species specific. Infects intestinal tractbloody stool or asymptomatic; treatment- meds to kill protozoa TOXOPLASMOSIS Parasitic infection with primary host as cat- eat infected meat or feces. Can spread to humans through scratchspontaneous abortion because it attacks the uterine arteries; flue-like symptoms. If untreated can lead to encephalitis, swelling of the brain which shuts down all organs. Drugs to reduce/eliminate protozoa so immune system can take over FUNGAL NAIL INFECTIONS Type of tinea (onychomycosis); discolored, cracked, thick nails; can spread to skin; caused by yeasts and molds (fungi); treatment prescribed oral antifungal meds or removal of nail, (flora in GI tract suppressed); prevention: keep hands and feet dry and clean, no barefeet
