All you need to know about Fungus

A layman should understand what a fungus really is. I will be precise otherwise it is a huge subject. Fungal diseases are not communicable. They are treatable. Relatively few types of fungi are pathogenic for humans. Most plant diseases are caused by fungi. Persons having low immunity are particularly susceptible.

Stress is the mother of all the trouble in your body. Humans are bound to have stress, try to reduce it as much as you can. This pandemic has shown as to how it can dictate terms to you. This pandemic will definitely go but the virus will not. It will remain in this world and it will become endemic like all its cousins have done like HIV, FLU,DENGUE ETC.

Steroids and Biologicals suppress the immune system, but at the same time they are life saving and have to be used. Health fraud especially by quackery is rampant. Always get treatment from well qualified Doctors.

Availability of anti-fungal drugs is the key. A Doctor is helpless without proper drugs. Hope I have covered a huge subject in a concise way. All the best. Be happy and help at least one needy person a day.
