The medical experts say that the Yellow Fungus infection is way scarier than Black and White Fungus, as it effects the body internally, posing a great threat to the vital internal organs. Unlike the two other newly emerged infections, Yellow fungus begins infecting and attacking the body internally, creating pus leakage and damaging the vital organs.

Other than that, this infection leads slow healing of wounds. Besides, if the case is critical or serious, it can cause more fatal effects including organ failure and acute necrosis.

The main cause behind these infections, be it Black, White or Yellow Fungus, is unsanitary practices such as poor hygiene, contaminated sources such as food or water etc. When someone inhales moulds which grow in the environment can lead to Yellow Fungus infection. Also, overuse of steroids, antibacterial medications or poor oxygen use have also been listed as to what causes these infections. Other than that, a person who has been taking steroids for some underlying disease, or those with compromised immunity are at higher risk to contract the infection.

Given the fatality and devastating impacts of Yellow Fungus, it becomes important for patients to get treatment for the infection as soon as any symptom occurs. Most importantly, to detect the occurrence of Yellow Fungus, the common symptoms to look for include lethargy, fatigue or exhaustion, loss of appetite, weight loss and poor metabolism and sunken eyes.

In terms of treatment, Amphotericin B injection is being given to the patients of these fungal infections. The Amphotericin B is an anti-fungal medicine, which is the only known treatment against the infection.
