Fungal infections are too common. Come summers and these infections rise in numbers and magnitude too. Hot humid climate makes it easier for the fungi to grow. Fungal infections usually occur in the moist part of the body folds of skin where the sweat is trapped. However these days the fungal infections are turning stubborn in nature. Fungal infections which used to respond to medications like antifungal drugs and local antifungal applications and subsided within two or three weeks now take a longer period of healing informs Dr I K Ramchandani Director of Dermatology at Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre.
