Beware of Fungal Acne Skin Infection
The rainy season that started last week is in full swing. It’s the rainy season that meets every year, so it’s always the case. In particular, due to the hot and humid weather, the skin is sticky all day long, and the whole body is itchy. The rainy season is the season in which various skin disorders that are usually unnoticed are likely to worsen.
Beware of hot and humid weather such as ringworm and electric wind.
Typical skin diseases during the rainy season include’Tenosis’, a skin infection caused by’fungus’. This ringworm can occur anywhere from head to toe. If it occurs on the face, it is called tinea facial, if it occurs on the body, it is called tinea in the body, jockline in the groin, and if it occurs in the foot, it is called athlete’s foot (ringing foot). The skin turns red and itchy, and the pigmentation is colored and the skin turns black.
In particular, jock stiffness in the groin area, also called bikini line, has similar symptoms to eczema, so if the drug is used incorrectly, it can worsen the symptoms, so you must consult a specialist. Jock stiffness usually originates from an athlete’s foot, so it is better to get treatment for the athlete’s foot in the groin along with treatment.
Another skin disease caused by fungus is called ‘jeonpung’. Round brown polka dots appear on the armpits, chest, and upper back. This is a type of fungus on the skin that multiplies in a humid environment and releases substances that change the color of the skin, causing the skin to change color. It is more common in people who sweat a lot, and it is helpful to prevent sweating and creating a cool environment as much as possible. Acne is severe in young people under their twenties. When the temperature and humidity are high, the skin becomes a little swollen. This is because the pores are more easily clogged and the secretion of sebum is not smooth and the inflammation becomes more severe.
Patients with severe acne wash their faces more often than usual, and if the rainy season worsens, it is better to see a specialist even if there are no symptoms of worsening.
