Danger at the door: Solar fungus

Interview: Yasmin Ilan

Sun fungus, which occurs when sensitive skin is exposed to too much sun, gives its first symptoms, including an itchy rash. But the more the skin is exposed to sunlight, the bigger the problem: rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing, headaches and nausea.

Professor of Dermatology. Dr. Jafar Turkoglu told Yasmeen Ilan about a skin disease that can be seen throughout the summer.

Nowadays, when the air temperature is rising, a troublesome process has started for those who have ‘sun allergies’. In recent years, there has been an increase in the incidence of fungal diseases due to the hot weather, said Professor Dr. Dr. Zafer Türkoğlu, “The condition we call solar urticaria is an itchy rash or hives that occurs on any skin exposed to the sun. The more the skin is exposed to sunlight, the more severe the reaction. In addition to the skin symptoms, some people experience headaches, fatigue. Nausea, palpitations and respiratory changes are reported, among other symptoms. Symptoms may worsen when large areas of the skin are exposed to sunlight. Follow-up will be more successful if the wavelength of the disease is found through testing during the course of the disease investigation. “

Cold sea water is also dangerous

Professor Dr. Zafer Türkoğlu, “Allergies caused by the unheated water temperature of the oceans can cause itching, swelling and redness all over the body, which is caused by the cold as hives in contact with colds. Allergic reactions are determined, and the patient’s treatment and treatment needs are determined. Follow-up will continue, “he warned. Mentioning that Health Sciences University Cam and Sakura City Hospital Dermatology Clinic deal with their team on allergies, Turkoglu said, Water exposure and similar physical stimuli, and other allergies.Diagnostic tests are available at our clinic.

Insect bites are another danger

As temperatures rise, we not only spend more time outside, but also come in contact with biting insects. Some bites can be quite harmful, others can be quite dangerous. “How do you see a dermatologist if a bite is harmful?” In response to the question, Professor. Dr. Jaffer Turkoglu says: “A small bite can be more serious. We recommend that the person go to the emergency room when they experience difficulty breathing, sore throat, swollen mouth, chest pain or rapid heartbeat, dizziness, nausea, headache or rash. It is an insecticide. “If a person feels insect bites and then feels abnormally tired, has headaches, body aches or rashes, it is essential to see a dermatologist.”

Defensive recommendation

Professor Dr. To prevent insect bites, Jaffer Turkoglu suggests the following: “The best way to avoid insect bites is to cover the exposed skin during outdoor activities. Staying away from wetlands or using insect repellents can help reduce the amount of food that insects come in contact with.” Attendance will invite insects to the area. If food is a must, don’t forget to close all meals. Finally, use window and door curtains to enjoy the warm air and avoid the annoying insects in your life. “
