An Allergy Infection caused by Fungus

mmmm

If you have allergies throughout the year, you could be allergic to what we call fungus or mold. Like other allergies, fungal allergy infections are triggered when you come into contact with what is known as mold or mildew, which is a form of fungi that is present and spreads in the air. Inhalation of the spores of the fungi can cause an allergic reaction in some people. 

What is it?

Allergic fungal infections usually affect your upper respiratory tract, and some can even cause inflammation to the skin. While most of these fungal allergy infections are minor and can be treated with medication, there are a few that can cause major health issues.

Allergic reactions to mold and other fungi can developed early in childhood, but some can occur even as the person ages. Some of the fungus allergy infections include

  • Fungal sinusitis and other respiratory diseases
  • Fungal eye infections
  • Fungal skin diseases
  • Fungal meningitis – affects the spinal cord through blood
  • Nail fungus infections

Symptoms

The symptoms of fungal allergy infection may differ from one person to another, based on the type of infection that the person has been affected with. Common symptoms that you should watch out for include

  • Fever, numbness or swelling of face, nasal discharge, cough, headache and visual disturbances in case of fungal sinusitisRashes, reddish-purple patches on the skin, cracking of skin, soreness, scaling and pimples with pus at affected areas in cases of fungal skin allergy infection
  • Scaling, severe discomfort in the ear and inflammation in case of fungal ear infection
  • Swelling of the nails, change in color of the nails to white or yellow and inflammation of the nail bed in case of nail or toenail fungal infection

Causes

There are millions of varieties of fungi around the world. Anyone, regardless of age, gender, and location can get affected by fungi. People with weak immune systems are more likely to get a fungal allergy infection than those with stronger immunity.

Fungal allergy infection is caused due to different types of fungi that thrive in certain conditions like dry or rotten wood, wet or moist conditions, plants, and other pollen. Fungi spread and multiply through the spores that are spread through the air.

While some fungi like black mold can be toxic, others are less dangerous but cause discomfort in the patient. The most common types of fungi causing allergy and infection include Aspergillus, Blastomyces, Candida, Coccidioides (found in dry weather), Cryptococcus neoformans (found in soil), Cryptococcus gattii, Histoplasma capsulatum (bat or bird droppings), and Mucoromycotina (in decaying matter) among others.

Allergies

Environmental Allergens
Environmental Allergens

The majority of people around the world are allergic to something or the other. Among the common triggers of allergic reactions include specific food types, pollen, dust, fungi and sometimes chemicals in medicines. Allergic reaction can cause mild irritation in some people and in some, they may be fatal. That is why it is important for people who have allergies to carry their anti-allergy medicines at all times. The best thing to do is avoid coming into contact with what you are allergic too.


What is it?

Allergies are the response of the immune system to a substance. When your body, the immune system to be precise, does not agree with something, you will experience an allergic reaction. Allergies are hypersensitive disorders, and when ignored, can lead to conditions like diarrhea, asthma, vomiting, sinusitis, and swelling of the face or other body parts.

Allergies are the over exaggerated reaction of a person’s immune system to a particular substance or particle. That is why something, that is good for you, may prove to be dangerous for another individual who is allergic to it.

While most allergies are developed at an early age, some people can become allergic to certain substances as they age. There is no saying what may cause the allergy or what they may become allergic to, but the most common factor causing an allergic reaction is changes in the immune system.

Treatment for allergies, therefore, include natural treatments, steroid injections and medicines that modify the structure of the immune system and minimize the reaction. People who are allergic to particles in the environment, like dust, pollen and such are more susceptible to their reactions.

 

Symptoms

The allergic reactions that people have can range from mild and fatal. The early stages of an allergic reaction could be acute and result in rashes, or running nose, itchy eyes, etc. that cause discomfort in the person. Severe allergies can lead to

  • Sneezing and running nose (Rhinitis)
  • Sinusitis
  • Coughing, some people may have an attack of asthma on exposure to allergens
  • Redness of the eye, itching and watering of eyes (Hayfever and Allergies)
  • Breakout of hives, rashes with inflammation of the skin
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Bloating of stomach, pain in the abdomen

Often, the allergies may appear in the form of rashes or a common cold and may occur repetitively. In such cases, the first step is to identify what you are allergic to and also consult a doctor for preventive medication.


Causes

 Allergies can be caused due to

  • Foods like nuts, dairy products, fish, etc.
  • Non-food proteins like latex
  • Toxins that interact with certain proteins in the food
  • Hereditary (genetic structure causes allergies in some people)

Nasal Growth for Life

Ever heard your nose grows throughout life… imagine if this statement were actually true!

nose11Our noses do not grow every year up until we gracefully expire but rather gravity takes a hold of our noses, dragging them downwards. This means that our noses do not grow but may seem larger due to gravities endless pull on them.

As we age, the collagen and elastin in our skin begins to deteriorate resulting in a loss of skin tone and strength. With a decrease in elasticity, our noses are pulled down and less able to withstand the pull of gravity.

With this said, how does gravity affect the normal flow of nasal mucus? If gravity pulls the nose downwards, this may have an effect on the ostia or exit ways for nasal mucus to drain, decreasing the diameter and size of these essential holes. Less drainage means more mucus accumulation and stagnation and the start of sinusitis.

A Sinus Infection CAN Kill You

Sinusitis TreatmentSinus infections are usually fully treatable however in rare cases, complications can arise with sinus infections causing meningitis and bone infections.

The spread of bacteria and viruses from the sinus cavities to the brain can lead to a swelling of the soft tissue membranes that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord leading to meningitis; whereas bone infections occur when viruses and bacteria have been allowed to remain stagnant around the bone formations for long periods of time causing corrosion of the bones.

So don’t wait to treat a Sinus Infection!!!

Is my condition Chronic or Acute?

Ever stood in front of a pharmacy isle thinking… Mmmmm is my condition chronic or acute? Now that’s the million dollar question! So instead I visited my GP, spent big bucks again only to end up taking a product that left me with vision-altering side effects….. wow, so back to the pharmacy isle again for a few hours contemplating on the correct severity of my condition. Perhaps if id brought my tablet along I could Google it!

Sinus Cavities

So what’s the difference in essence between acute and chronic… In a nutshell of course…

By definition, acute means the condition has been present for a short period of time and basically started rapidly; didn’t take long to occur or drag itself out from the onset. We then move onto sub-acute which is almost like the peanut butter between ones sandwich [the middle line so to say]. For me, sub-acute medication would be the next step I would take if the acute medication didn’t do the trick; and last but definitely not least is the chronic phase. A chronic condition has basically overstayed its welcome lasting for 4 weeks or more with certain days been worse than others. Some medications have the word chronic written on them whereas others stick to the term severe. Chronic medication is also often what GP or Specialist prescribed so you may find it difficult to locate these types of products on the pharmacy isle.

If all else fails and my guide to differentiating between acute, sub-acute and chronic doesn’t help, there’s always the friendly pharmacy assistants on standby to help you or like Sinus-Pro, there’s their trusty Sinus Diagnostics Tool… its almost the same as having your very own, dedicated pharmacist assistant to help you when you need… it’s just a click away…
