As if increasing cases of Black and White fungus weren’t creating enough havoc in the country, a person hailing from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh has now been diagnosed with a yellow fungus infection. The patient is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital in Ghaziabad.

To add to the woes of the people, the yellow fungus is considered more dangerous than the black and white fungus.

The symptoms of yellow fungus are said to be lethargy, weight loss, low appetite, or no appetite at all. Subsequently, more severe symptoms of the fungus can also be the leakage of pus. It also reportedly affects the healing process of wounds and slows it down. It also results in sunken eyes and organ failure and eventually leads to necrosis.

Yellow fungus is a fatal disease because it starts internally and it’s important for a person to seek medical treatment as soon as he/she notices any symptoms.

The fungus is mainly caused by poor hygiene. In addition, too much humidity can also cause the infection as it promotes the proliferation of bacteria and fungus.

The only treatment for the Fungus is Amphotericin B injection, which is a broad-spectrum antifungal.
