Athlete’s foot, ringworm and yeast infections are all examples of fungal infections. Fungi are living organisms which produce spores that spread through the air. The type of infection is wholly dependent on which type of fungi you have come in contact with. As such, each type of fungal infection is treated differently. Furthermore, in order to ensure that a fungal infection doesn’t reoccur, other contributing medical conditions must be addressed.

Kayal Dermatology can identify the type of fungal infection you have, as well as determining any underlying cause. We can treat the infection and offer advice on how to ensure that it doesn’t return. Dr. Kayal will consult with you and arrange a treatment plan which suits your individual needs to limit the impact on your day-to-day life.

Causes, Symptoms, Treatment of a Fungal Infection

If the spores of fungi are inhaled or land on your skin, you may develop a fungal infection. People with a compromised immune system are much more susceptible to fungal infections, as are people who are taking antibiotics to treat an unrelated condition. With that in mind, fungal infections are caused by a combination of things. Healthy people are less likely to develop a fungal infection, even if they come into contact with a large number of spores.

Itchy, red, inflamed or scaly skin may indicate that you are suffering from a type of fungal infection. There are various treatments for fungal infections which come in the form of medicine, sprays, creams, and even shampoos. However, as an aid to treatment, Kayal Dermatology will help you identify any underlying issues you may have which contributed to the development of a fungal infection. During your treatment, we will take the time to understand your other worries and health concerns so that you can address any issues which may have allowed a fungal infection to take hold. Contact us today to schedule your consultation regarding a fungal infection.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Eve L.

Love this place! Everyone is so caring, and very helpful in each way possible. Highly recommend this place for skin care and even skin cancer!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.

Lisa W.

PA Brown is very attentive to my son's needs. I have not had any difficulty getting appointments when needed. I think this practice provides excellent service. I definitely recommend Kayal Dermatology for all of your skin needs.
