Beach ringworm: what can be done to dramatically accelerate the treatment of the disease?
What is the only name not invented in common for both depriving: and Sunny and colorful and pityriasis.
Meanwhile, it is quite a dangerous fungal infection of the skin! Let’s consider the main differences of this disease from other forms of lichen and examine how it is treated.
Beach ringworm is very easy to recognise because unlike pink, ringworm, and other types of lichen, this form is not expressed by any inflammatory processes, wounds, elevations and acne. Beach herpes has the following symptoms:
- spots yellowish-brown color;
- localisation is always at the back and the abdomen;
- with the course of the disease the color of the plaques is darkened, and dark-skinned people lighter;
- after some time, the spots merge and form one large lesion;
- place the skin may peel off;
- beach ringworm is always accompanied by itching.
Each person has pityriasis versicolor is with its own characteristics, but there are signs that clearly indicate it in this disease.
Photos from the classic manifestation of this disease we attached below.
Fungal microflora, in normal circumstances, is always on the human skin. But his negative development begins only under the influence of different conditions, it can be:
- mental strain;
- changes in the chemical composition of sweat;
- the increase of its quantity;
- to complicated infectious diseases;
- a weakened immune system;
- the abuse of a Solarium;
- abuse wash the body, especially antibacterial.
The fact that the skin has its own protective layer and with frequent washing, use of gels and antibacterial soap, natural protection of the epidermis decreases, and this creates the perfect conditions for reproduction of the fungus.
Staining spots in different colors ranging from bright white to dark brown is because the fungus attacks the melanocytes – the cells responsible for pigmentation.
Thus, the process of changing colour under the action of ultraviolet light is broken.
For qualified specialist is not difficult to determine beach shingles, but for accurate diagnosis of localization, the patient’s skin examine using a special lamp.
This is required in order to detect all lesions, or the treatment that requires treatment of all areas may not yield any result.
To determine what type of fungus takes place in a particular case, is scraping scales, which then are sown in a supportive environment.
As a rule, therapy is applying anti-fungal cream on the lesions. You can assign solutions against fungus and special ointments.
In the case where the large area of tinea versicolor, apply antifungal drugs in tablets.
Weekly it is recommended that patients be tested for the presence of pathogenic microorganisms. When the fungus is not detected and the disease will retreat, yet within two weeks is required not to stop taking medicines and external treatment.
If you stop the therapy early, the likelihood of recurrence of the lesions will be 100%.
Importantly, during treatment, you need to follow is to take care of your skin, here are some factors that will greatly accelerate the process of recovery:
- take a shower at least once a day;
- the bathroom also should be abolished, no need to the affected areas for a long time the IOC;
- synthetic clothes and underwear should be replaced with natural;
- same goes for bedding;
- wash underwear and bed is required at high temperatures;
- after washing have to iron iron;
- the diet should contain only hypoallergenic products;
- to avoid stressful situations.
In network a lot of information about that at the beach Stripping is contraindicated to stay out of the sun, but it’s not.
Sun rays in the morning and evening hours have a positive effect on the skin and contribute to the destruction of the fungus.
Because as we know, fungal spores don’t like light and dryness. The main condition for sunbathing is dosed stay under ultraviolet rays.
I attach a video where the woman tells how she got rid of this disease:
How to avoid infection
Despite its simplicity, the disease is considered contagious and it is transmitted through underwear and bed.
So if one of the family members is sick, you should follow preventive measures.
No need to share personal items, clothing and shoes. All that counts appliances should be periodically disinfected.
Once the illness go away
Some time after the onset of the recovery to wipe the skin acidified solution or lemon water, salicylic acid or acetic acid. And to continue washing and Ironing linen and bed at high temperatures.
So, we understood what a beach shingles. Pathology comes under the influence of certain factors that weaken the protective function of the skin and body as a whole.
It is easy to diagnose. Although this is a number of additional tests. Therapy is prescribed as follows: it is an antifungal treatment of lesions and medication inside.
For successful recovery it should be clearly to observe hygiene and avoid excessive sweating, to properly handle linen and do not wear synthetics.
A set of measures that a patient would produce under the supervision of a dermatologist will definitely lead to a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself and health to you!
