Tinea Nigra: Definition, Symptoms, and Treatment
Tinea Nigra is an infection that attacks the upper layers of the skin. This is caused by a fungus called Hortaea werneckii. The fungus has also been named in the name of Phaeoannellomyces werneckii, Exophiala werneckii, and Cladosporium werneckii.
This fungus is found to break the soil, sewage, and vegetation of tropical or sub-tropical coastal areas. In particular, these areas include the coast of Caribbean and South America. Tinea nigra is rare in the United States, but when it is seen, it usually occurs in warm, humid climate in the southeast.
Fungus causes pain and brown legs to grow on palms and feet. Occasionally other areas of the body, such as neck and trunk, can be affected.
What Causes It?
Tinea nigra fungus stems from infection with Hortaea werneckii. Direct communication with fungus is necessary for transmission. For example, by shaking someone’s hand with Tinea nigra, the situation will not spread.
Fungus can infiltrate skin through open sores or cuts. It starts growing on wet, clammy, sweaty skin, this is the reason that the palms and feet soles of hands appear to be common goals for infection.
According to research in the online dermatology journal, lasers usually appear two to seven weeks after contact with the lungs. And when the situation can kill anyone, the journal Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia reports that it is usually seen in women under the age of 20 years.
What are The Symptoms?
Tinea nigra is largely painless and harmless, but it produces some symptoms. they include:
• A brown or black patch looks like a stain that usually occurs on the palm of the hand or, rarely, on the sole of the foot. In a study published in Studies in Mycology, 22 out of 22 people had patches on their palms with Tinea nigra, while only three placed them on their feet.
• The patch is usually flat with defined boundaries.
• The darkest area of the patch is on the edges. Shading becomes lighter because it spreads internally. This dark outer area can look like Halo.
• The wound is slowing down and usually only appears on one hand or leg.
How is it Diagnosed?
Your doctor will take physical examination and will ask about your recent history along with your medical history.
Tinea nigra may look more like a serious skin condition, such as malignant melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer that can present as a dark patch. Because of this, your doctor wants to scrape the wound sample and send it to the laboratory for testing. In some cases, the wound can be completely scraped and no further treatment is required.
Tinea nigra affects the upper layers of the skin. Because of this, it responds well to occasional plaster and cream. These medicines are applied directly to the skin.
Your doctor may recommend medicines such as alicylic acid, urea, or benzoic acid. This speed causes the cell business and skin to be restored. Antifungal creams is used for two to four weeks. In some cases, drying agents such as aluminum chloride are prescribed.
Since the fungus causing tinea nigra is found in soil, sewage and rot vegetable, the best way to prevent infection is to protect your skin. Wear shoes if you walk in warm, wet areas where fungi are found. If there is a risk then you will touch the vegetation – for example, if you hiking, gardening or planting – be sure to wear gloves.
Tinea Nigra is a rare and harmless skin condition. With treatment, it usually gets resolved in a few weeks. There is no permanent side effect and you are not likely to be empty until you return to the fungus again.
One thought on “Tinea Nigra: Definition, Symptoms, and Treatment”
Hey, how’s it going?
I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!
In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.
Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.
Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).
More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).
People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

“EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX
We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.
A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.
It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?
Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.
Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!
Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).
The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any religion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
