Fungi and Yeasts

Fungi and yeasts are multi-celled plants that are parasites. An everyday example of a fungus is mushrooms. However, the fungi that cause human disease are usually very small fungi. There are a few common human fungal conditions that are rarely harmful except for those with severely weakened immune systems.

The use of anti-fungal creams and pills is common to control fungi. Unfortunately, it is natural for the human body to have lots of different fungi on its skin and membranes, so the recurrence rate can be high.
