Fungal infections are caused by fungi that commonly exist in the environment. Infections are usually at superficial layer and often involve the nails, hair and skin. The symptoms of fungal infection depend on the type of infection and location within the body.
Invasive fungal infections are less common, but more serious type of fungal infection may result. They are infections that occur deep inside the body’s tissue or in one of the organs, such as brain and lung.
