Global Mycoses Treatment Market: Overview

Mycoses are skin infections caused by fungi. These are primarily caused by three groups of fungi: dermatophytes, yeasts, and molds. Dermatophytes cause fungal infections on head and feet such as trichophyton and microsporum. Yeasts cause infections in the genital area, mouth, and esophagus. Examples of infection caused by yeast fungi include candida and pityrosporum. Molds are responsible for infection in internal organs such as aspergillus and lead to systemic mycoses. Systemic mycoses results in the spread of fungi via bloodstream to other organs, causing multiple organ failure. Itching, eczematous rash, lumpy & thickened skin, loss of appetite & weight loss, red skin patches, and fever are the various symptoms associated with mycoses. Mycoses are caused due to weakened immune systems i.e., immunocompromised state that includes patients with HIV/AIDS and patients treated with corticosteroids for a prolonged period. Other causes include poorly controlled diabetes, overweight, and any sort of contact with contaminated items such as clothes and towel. Tests used to diagnose mycoses include a general physical examination of the body, complete blood count, skin biopsy, flow cytometry, and immunophenotyping.
