Take a controlled dose of steroids as advised by the doctor
Dr Sanjeev Kumar of AIIMS says it is a fungal infection. It only occurs when the body’s immunity is very weak.
Someone has been ill for a long time or has been hospitalized for a long time or has been on the ventilator for a long time. If the body is weak enough, this fungus catches the nose, face, throat, eyes and brain.
Steroid medicine is very effective in treating Covid, but people should use it only with the advice of a doctor.
People take steroid medicine uncontrollably on their mind. Especially those who are already suffering from cancer, sugar, kidney or any long-term disease, patients need extreme caution.
During the covid infection, the body becomes very weak. Steroids misuse the medicine without the doctor’s advice. People take uncontrolled doses in the process of quick recovery.

Face, teeth, eyes, nose and headache. Watery nose and bleeding. The black crust in the nose, swelling of the eye, redness, loss of light or loss, the exit of the eye.
