Treating Black Fungus -How is mucormycosis treated?

People who have taken both doses have a good chance of COVID-19 infection and are much less prone to black fungus.

We all know Mucormycosis is a serious infection and needs to be treated immediately with prescription antifungal medicine. In most cases amphotericin B, posaconazole, or isavuconazole is used. These medicines are given through a vein (amphotericin B, posaconazole, isavuconazole) or by mouth (posaconazole, isavuconazole). The other line of treatment which includes fluconazole, voriconazole, and echinocandins, does not work against fungi that cause mucormycosis. Often, mucormycosis requires surgery to cut away the infected tissue.

Sixty per cent to 70 per cent of the patients who come with black fungus had not taken the vaccine, 25-30 per cent had taken one dose, and less than five per cent had taken both doses. Thus, people who have taken both doses have a good chance of COVID-19 infection and are much less prone to black fungus.Talk to our Specialists to learn more.
