Yellow and White Fungus : Symptoms and Precaution

Yellow fungus:

Yellow fungus starts internally, causes pus leakage and leads to slow healing of wounds. In some serious cases, it could lead to devastating symptoms like organ failure and acute necrosis. This infection can prove to be more dangerous than black and white fungus.  It is caused by unsanitary conditions, overuse of steroids and other medications. Patients using immunity-suppressing medications continue to be at a greater risk for catching the infection. Excess humidity could also be a contributing factor for the growth of the infection.
