Scrape from the skin on mushrooms

Fungal skin scraping is an analysis that helps diagnose the presence of a fungal infection. Fungal infections most often affect the skin, nails and hair. In order to prescribe an effective treatment, the dermatologist needs to determine the type of fungal pathogen. For this purpose, biomaterial is scraped into mushrooms.

  • Indications for analysis

    • peeling, itching and/or redness of the skin;
    • suspicion of mycotic diseases;
    • determination of the type of fungus for treatment;
    • control of the therapy.

  • How to prepare a child for analysis?

    There is no special preparation for scraping. For a week, you should abandon the use of decorative cosmetics and ointments, which can affect the results of the study. A day before the analysis, it is not recommended to carry out thorough cleaning and scrubbing of the affected areas of the skin. The procedure is absolutely painless and does not harm health. With the help of a sterile surgical scalpel, the doctor scrapes off particles of the affected skin. After that, the particles are placed on laboratory glass, diluted with an alkaline solution. Pathogenic fungi are clearly visible under a microscope, so the result can be obtained quite quickly.
