fungal infection symptoms
- A form of erasure where there is mild itching, burning, dryness, and peeling of the spaces between the fingers.
- Squamous. Extensive lamellar peeling occurs in the interdigital folds of the plantar area. The course of the disease is longer - painful cracks, itching.
- If the squamous stage is left untreated, the intertriginous form will develop. The process begins with the stratum corneum of the skin between the fingers becoming congested, moist and loose. When the impregnated areas are separated, the eroded surface is revealed, surrounded by fragments of softened epidermis. The procedure involves the area near the toes and soles of the feet. A person may experience pain when walking and may develop secondary purulent infection.
- Hyperkeratosis. Areas that form dry nodules and bluish-red patches covered with dense scales. They are clearly demarcated from healthy skin and peel along the perimeter. They are located on the sole of the foot, moving to the side of the foot and into the interdigital folds. This form may appear as yellowish calluses with cracks in the top layer. Symptoms: Mild itching, chapped, dry skin.
- Sweating disorder primarily affects the soles of the feet. Clinical images are complemented by large bubbles with tight lids. The rash may be single or multiple. The blisters may coalesce together, forming cortices, or open to expose erosions. As the disease progresses, areas of erosion develop, and when pressure is applied to them, severe pain occurs.
A typical symptom of weeping mycosis is an unpleasant odor on the feet.
