How Do You Get Fungus In Your Lungs
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

I need to get a fungus powder for a fungus on my chest, its between my breast she said its from the moisture and heat, but what powder should I get?
No, they treat it: The air we breathe always has fungal spores in it, and these don't usually cause any problems. When they do, a fungus ball can form (rare), we can get a fungal pneumonia (mainly in immune suppressed patients), or we can get an allergic reaction to the fungus. The last is commonest, and is treated with inhaled and systemic steroids + antifungals. The fungus itself and immune disorders cause it. ...Read more

Once you have had a lung fungus, can it spread to your brains. Also, it will cause you to start having allegy?
Fungal infections: Fungal pneumonias are rare, but in those who have them (usually with some sort of immune compromise), it can spread anywhere, including the brain.

Operated fungus ball in left maxillary sinus. Now, postnasal discharge (~ right side) in stomach and left lung. Big spleen. Smelly urine. What could be?
See doctor: Fungal ball in the sinus is not expected to cause urinary, abdominal, or urinary symptoms. If this affects your lung, then one needs to rule out the presence of fungal ball in the lung also. With the large spleen, I suspect that you are having a systemic disease and this requires tests and examination to clarify. By the way, the odor of urine is not usually diagnostic of anything. ...Read more

I wouldn't try: This post-inflammatory pigmentation is to be expected. Exposing your skin to ultraviolet will age it faster than it needs to happen, and risks cancer down the road. Messing around with darkeners like permanganate is more likely to leave a mess. In real life, there are no movie-star-perfect bodies, and nobody cares. At your age, like any other, looks are 95% about fitness. Best wishes. ...Read more
