Zygomycete is an infection that is caused by fungi. It is a very rare infection to come into contact with. There are two different types of Zygomycete infections. Mucorales and entomophthorales are the two types of Zygomycete. Those who are most affected by Zygomycete are infected with mucorales. Mucorales often infects those who have weak immune systems due to taking certain drugs and disease such as diabetes. Mucorales affects males more often than it does females. It is an infection that normally occurs on the face. The fungi enter the body through the nose and cause the face to swell due to inferior turbinates. Entomophthroales is a chronic disease that has two different species on infection. Zygomycetes is very contagious, but it cannot be contracted from person t person.

Symptoms of Zygomycete

  • Swelling of the face or eye area
  • Palpitations or movable lumps on the face
  • Peeling or swollen skin over lumps
  • Lumps will be painful to touch. Pain might also be experience
  • Runny, bleeding, or stuffy nose

  • Coughing up blood, abdominal pain, and convulsions can also be symptoms of Zygomycetes.
  • Some signs and symptoms of Zygomycetes can only be recognized by a doctor or other trained medical professional
  • Pus or drainage from the nose
  • Inflamed cranial nerves and lethargy
  • Kidney infections, skin infections, and thrombosis

Treatment Options For Zygomycete

Zygomycete can only be diagnosed through a skin biopsy, where doctors cut into the lump to take tissue samples for testing. This is a very delicate procedure because doctors need live samples to ensure that the test results do not provide a false negative result. There are many different treatment options for Zygomycete. Itraconozole, fluconozole, amphhotericin B, and voriconazole are all treatment options for Zygomycete, regardless of which type that you are suffering from. Removing the tissue that is infected is also another treatment option for Zygomycetes. Antifungal agents are the most effective treatment option for Zygomycetes.

How To Avoid And Prevent Zygomycete

There are a few things that you can do to avoid being infected with Zygomycete. The pathogens that cause this infection can often be found in specific types of mushrooms, in the soil, and in the air. There are many treatment options for Zygomycetes. Most people that end up with Zygomycetes have to be hospitalized, even if it just for a short period of time. There are certain foods that you can avoid to reduce your risk of ingesting one of the infectious agents that can cause Zygomycete. Certain breads and fruits, like strawberries can contain the infectious agents that are known to cause Zygomycete. Washing your fruits, regardless of where they are purchased, can help reduce your risk of contracting this infectious agent. This is a medical condition that can cause serious problems if it is left untreated.
