FAQ

How is the skin sample taken for this test?

During a skin scraping procedure, the doctor will use a tool to carefully remove affected skin. This sample is then submerged in a liquid solution containing potassium hydroxide (KOH), which eradicates non-fungal cells. By examining the sample under a microscope, the presence of fungal infection can be easily detected.

What other tests can be performed to check for a fungal skin infection?

The skin tests that can be performed are:

  • Skin biopsy with stains – special stains used to detect fungus
  • Biopsy with cell culture – more accurate but time consuming process
  • Stained wet mount – similar to KOH test but uses a special Blue/Black stain
  • Wood lamp test – particularly used for fungal infection on scalp

Why is the vaginal discharge test done?

Pathologic vaginal discharge occurs in many cases that might be due to any infection or without any infection. Infections in vagina are the reason for vaginitis caused due to Candida, Trichomonas, and Bacterial vaginosis. These infections occur due to unhygienic practices and can be medically cured if identified on time.
