Skin fungi are a group of microorganisms capable of causing various diseases affecting the epidermis and the dermis, generally known as cutaneous mycoses (or dermatomycoses)
Also called fungi, fungi are commonly found in skin flora and in the environment, but generally they are not a problem; in fact, they tend to “cohabit” with the human organism in the state of saprophytes, without harming you. All this thanks to several defensive factors of the skin that protect the human body from their excessive development. In some favorable conditions, skin fungi can turn into invasive pathogens acting as opportunistic microorganisms. In practice, these mushrooms are able to “exploit” a state of immune weakness in the body to increase their colonies on the skin, to the point of causing a disease.
Not surprisingly, infections caused by skin fungi occur more frequently during the summer, when the heat and humidity typical of the summer season facilitate their growth and spread among individuals (considering the frequentation of crowded places, like swimming pools and beaches).
The symptoms associated with mycosis of the skin manifest themselves in the cutaneous sites and in the annexed structures (for example on the scalp, on the nails, on the feet, on the genitals or on other skin surfaces) that they infect.
Fungal infections affecting the upper layers of the skin and nails are usually caused by organisms known as dermatophytes. Dermatophytosis (ringworm or ringworm), are often responsible for itching, flaking, skin that tends to rot in the most humid areas, athlete’s foot and other discomforts that affect the skin.
Factors able to increase the likelihood of suffering from mycosis of the skin or nails include:
Work in a wet environment,
Psoriasis (a skin disease),
Socks and shoes that prevent perspiration and do not absorb perspiration
Walking barefoot in damp public areas, such as swimming pools, gyms, changing rooms and showers
Athlete’s foot (Tinea pedis),
Small lesions of the skin or nails, a damaged nail or another infection
Diabetes or circulatory problems or problems with the immune system.
Contact with animals, people or things and places infected with spores
These infections tend to develop on the skin because the fungal spores are usually found in the air or on the soil with which it comes into contact. In most cases, these discomforts are not serious unless your immune system is in some way compromised. Although the main advice, in the case of fungal infections, is to promptly contact your doctor, in order to have the right care depending on the case, you can take advantage of the help of some natural remedies that, used daily or several times per day day, they can prove useful and effective, especially when we are at the beginning of the infection or when we want to observe daily hygiene and cleanliness rules, which avoid the aggression of larger areas.
To prevent complications we have created a synergy based on essential oils specialized in the treatment of mycoses. Thanks to their proven antifungal, antibacterial, healing and analgesic properties, they will eliminate the fungi leaving the skin healthy.
MYCOSIS MIX AROMATIQUE
It is a synergy of specific natural essential oils that can effectively fight the main mycoses of the skin
Method of use
Apply a few drops of Mycosis Mix Aromatique one or more times a day after having cleansed the affected area in a balanced way, with a product such as Mitis Purgo, a mild detergent, antifungal, antiseptic and antibacterial, and well dried it, massage and let it dry naturally without rinsing. If the fungus is on the nails, it is sufficient to make a footbath or a handbath with a few drops of Mycosis; if after 2 or 3 weeks of treatment you do not notice any particular improvement, interrupt for a week and then repeat the cycle.
