The pictures are distracting, so we are not showing them clearly.
In the midst of the corona epidemic, people struggling with uncontrolled diabetes, kidney, hypertension and obesity need to be particularly vigilant. People with such multiple diseases are now facing a new problem. So far, 60 such patients have been identified in Ahmedabad, who have now succumbed to the deadly disease called Mucoramycosis (fungal infection). Of these, 9 people have also died and three have lost their eyesight. More than 30 such patients are admitted in civil hospital.
Mucoramycosis can also cause light or loss of eyes. The pictures are distracting, so we are not showing them clearly.
3-4 patients a day
According to information from the Civil Hospital, Corona is becoming a major disaster for people with multiple diseases. Such patients are complaining of blood clotting. Due to the formation of blood clot, their sugar level increases significantly. Apart from this, fungus occurs after infection in the nose and ears. This causes swelling on the entire face.
It has the most effect on the eyes and due to lack of treatment at the right time, the eyesight can be lost. It is a matter of concern that 3-4 such patients are getting admitted in civil hospital every day.
Don’t be careless
Belaben Prajapati, a doctor at the Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad, said that the initial symptoms are the first cold a patient has. After this, most people do not go to the doctor and start home treatment, due to which the infection goes on spreading.
After some time, phlegm freezes and then a lump is formed near the nose. This lump has a direct effect on the eyes, after which the eyes start sticking and head ache starts. That is why anti-fungal therapy should be started immediately after swelling of the eyes, cheeks, and nasal blockage or black dried crust.
If there is swelling or more pain in the nose or if there is blurred vision in the eyes, a doctor should be consulted immediately.
What is mucomycosis?
Fungal infection occurs due to Kovid in diabetic patients. It usually starts from the nose and can cause a nasal bone and spoil the eyes. It also makes the jaws clench. In such patients, if there is swelling in the nose or more pain appears blurred from the eyes, a doctor should be consulted immediately. It may be paralyzed by the pupils or surrounding area of the eye. If more days pass, then there is a danger of increasing the infection in the brain.
For whom danger
There have been cases of mucoramycosis disease in covid patients in many states. Many sinus patients have this problem, but the covid is more dangerous for the patient. Especially those who have diabetes or their immunity is weak. After becoming Kovid, it is necessary for such people to completely control diabetes. So increasing immunity is the best option. If infection occurs, the risk of meningitis and sinus clotting also increases. So do not take home remedies if you see symptoms, go directly to the doctor.
