Many new diseases are coming with the new mutants of Kovid-19. Recently, a disease named ‘Mucor Mycosis’ is in discussion. Actually, it is a kind of ‘fungus’ or ‘fungus’. It attacks those who are taking medicines due to any health problem and due to these medicines their immunity or immunity of the body is reduced. This fungal infection starts from the nose, then reaches the eyes and then goes to the brain, but there is nothing to panic. If symptoms are identified at the right time, then its treatment is also possible.
Mucar mycosis is possible
According to NITI Aayog member (health) Dr VK Paul, this infection is caused by a fungus named ‘mukkar’ and hence we call it ‘mukor mycosis’. Dr. Paul explains, “It is found to a large extent in diabetes patients, if you do not have diabetes, then there is very little chance that you will have to face it.” It is not seen that there is any big outbreak happening. We are watching it. This is a curative disease. “
He further said that if a diabetic patient is taking immune suppressive (suppress immunity) medicines, steroids, or has cancer, then the effect of mucor mycosis is more on that person. Actually, medicines like Dexamethasone, Prednisolone, Methylpredisolone, Dexona are taken for the treatment of Kovid-19 disease. These drugs suppress our immune system. When a covid-infected patient is put on oxygen support, it has a humidifier, which contains water, which increases the likelihood of a fungal infection.
Dr. VK Paul says about its rescue, “Those who have sugar disease will have to keep it under control. We have told the administration about steroids not to give it to the patient at the beginning of Kovid-19. Steroids should not be given unnecessarily. It should be given after the sixth day and only give it to the patient for a specified period. “
