Amid the rising cases of Black Fungus infection in several states of India, one case of Yellow Fungus infection has been reported from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh. Yellow Fungus is considered more dangerous than both Black Fungus and White Fungus. The infected patient is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital in Ghaziabad.
Symptoms of yellow fungus are laziness, loss of appetite, or no appetite at all and weight loss. In serious cases, yellow fungus can also cause leakage of pus and slow healing of the open wound and slow healing of all wounds, malnutrition and organ failure and sunken eyes due to eventual necrosis.
Though it is still not known that who are more at risk of White Fungus but some experts said that those who have weak immunity should remain on alert and contact a doctor if they notice any symptoms. The people with diabetes, cancer and other co-morbidities should also remain on alert and do not ignore the symptoms of white fungus infection.
Yellow fungus infection is mainly caused by bad hygiene. It is very important to clean out the enclosure around your home and keep it as clean as possible. Remove old foods and fecal matter as soon as possible to help prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus.
The humidity of the house is also important so it should be measured at all times as too much humidity can promote the growth of bacteria and fungus. The correct humidity level is 30% to 40%. Notably, it is easier to deal with low humidity than having too much moisture.
