  • About 4 years ago I was hiking with my mom and I noticed a balled up, discarded black sock on the side of the trail.  Naturally, being a curious little bug, I had to stop and glance... I mean, what the heck? 🤔 - WELL it certainly was not a sock - but a "black elfin saddle!" I'd never seen one before!  To this day my mom and I refer to this fungus as "black sock fungus." 🧦 - This one is looking particularly proud, don't you think?  Rock on, fella! 🖤 - "Black Elfin Saddle" (Helvella lacunosa) 🔍 #elfinsaddle #blackelfinsaddle #helvella #helvellalacunosa

  • C. albicans, germ tube +. C.albicans is an opportunistic pathogenic yeast that is a common member of the human gut flora. It does not proliferate outside the human body. It is detected in the gastrointestinal tract and mouth in 40–60% of healthy adults.It is usually a commensalorganism, but it can become pathogenic in immunocompromised individuals under a variety of conditions.  It is one of the few species of the genus Candida that causes the human infection candidiasis, which results from an overgrowth of the fungus. Candidiasis is for example often observed in HIV-infected patients.C. albicans is the most common fungal species isolated from biofilms either formed on (permanent) implanted medical devices or on human tissue. #fungi #mold #infection #microbiology #microbiologylab #mycology #sciart #microscopy #biology #biologia #microbiologia #micro #pathology #fungal

  • ORAL CANDIDIASIS IN HIV PATIENT!!! This is the case of a 51-year-old male that arrived into the emergency department due to fever of unknown origin. Upon initial contact with the patient, a characteristic white oral thrush was noticed. Patient was also referred due to generalized malaise, unexplained weight loss & dehydration (Which he though was the reason why his lips & tongue had that white appearance). Upon history & physical the patient became very reluctant & dismissive when asked about previous drug use or risky sexual practices. The patient was suspected as an HIV positive, which he also suspected but didn't want to address it. He started to develop chills, abdominal cramps & diarrhea. His stool tested positive for the Giardia Lamblia antigen, leading all to think of HIV as culprit. He was oriented he eventually agreed to be tested for HIV, which indeed came out positive. Oropharyngeal candidiasis (thrush) is a fungal disease of the oral mucosa and tongue, and is the most common intraoral lesion among persons infected with HIV. It develops when the CD4+ T cell count drops below 500 and the patient become immunocompromised, predisposing him to many infections without the ability to fight them. With proper anti-fungal medications, the symptoms started to resolve. He was set for follow-up as out-patient for proper care of his underlying condition. Case by: @dr.johnmarti

  • Ok, so ive been a little quiet but i want to show you this new soap that I just recieved today. For years I've suffered from perioral dermatitis around my nose and chin but recently it spread to my eye area. This has fruatrated me no end because there has been nothing to keep it at bay... Ive tried steroid products and natural products and its gotten to the point where I can wear no make up, which for me is horrible because I am such a girl and love all girly things but my face is screaming NOOOOO... So in all my research I came across this soap called African Black Soap. The ingredients are shea butter, purified water, coconut oil, neem oil, cocoa and plantain extract. Its been used for centuries for the treat eczema, blemishes, oily skin, psoriasis, dandruff and other skin ailments so Im about to test it out. Im gonna do a before picture and use it for two weeks then do another picture. Im hoping that I have success. Ill keep you all updated but if anyone has suffered perioral dermatitis let me know what you used to clear it up.. #perioraldermatitis #crazyskin #hormones #bacterial #fungal #whichisit #skin #skincare #africanblacksoap #deluxsheabutter #trialanderror #niceskin #eczema #psoriasis #help #soap #sheabutter

  • This little black racer was flipped behind an abandoned house in the panhandle area of Florida. If you look closely at its mouth, you can see that its suffering Snake Fungal Disease (SFD). SFD is a widespread fungal infection documented across snakes of various species across 23 states and 1 canadian province. Not much is known about it. Some of the symptoms include skin ulcers, bumps, cloudy eyes and facial disfigurations which can lead to emaciation. This animal served as an important reminder to disinfect equipment when going to new areas and keeping hand sanitizer when herping. #herp #herping #florida #reptile #black #snake #racer #reptiles #snakes #fungal #disease #fungus

  • There's lots of edible common hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium) starting to grow this time of year. It's considered an amazing vegetable by lots of people including me, to me it tastes like carrots and dill with its own flavours mixed in. BEFORE YOU TOUCH THIS PLANT make sure you know what giant hogweed looks like because it can cause severe burns when you touch the plant / get the sap on your skin, I find them very easy to tell apart though, giant hogweed has very spiky maple shaped leaves but common hogweed has a triple pointed leaf at the top with many more leaflets going down the stem. You must do your own research on identification though don't just use this post! It took me a couple of months until I tried this plant because I was worried about giant hogweed but once I seen some videos and online posts about it I felt safe picking it. I find it all the time on field edges especially near water and also by the sides of paths. It can be found on roadsides or anywhere where the seeds end up landing really, it seems to really like growing under trees too. This plant is completely different to its lookalikes once you take notice to details , so study any plant carefully that you're worried about identifying wrong until you feel safe enough to pick it and never eat it unless you are 0% concerned and 100% confident. Happy foraging !! :-) #heracleum #heracleumsphondylium #commonhogweed #hogweed #gardening #garden #plants #plant #allotment #allotments #foraging #foragingEngland #foraginguk #foragefood #fungi #fungus #fungal #mushroom #shroom #shrooms #wildfood #wildfooduk #wild #nature # #vegan #vegandiet #vegans #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #winter

  • Pleurotus eryngii, The King Oyster Mushroom. This is a homegrown mushroom but they can also be found in the wild but they are quite rare, however they share the same benefits and nutrients as the closely related and more commonly found Oyster Mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus. They are a good source of riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, phosphorous, potassium, copper, dietary fiber, protein, B6, folate, iron, magnesium, zinc and manganese. King oysters as well as common oyster mushrooms both contain antioxidants that help to treat and prevent disease, the main beneficial antioxidant in these mushrooms is called ergothioneine and it has a number of benefits, it reduces oxidation or oxygen related stress, it can be taken to help liver damage, cataracts, alzheimers disease, diabetes, heart disease and sun damage. It ergothioneine can also be applied to the skin to prevent wrinkles and decrease signs of aging. If you want these benefits you can use common oysters too, happy foraging. :-) #foraging #foraginguk #wildfood #wildfooduk #vegan #vegandiet #vegetable #freefood #fungi #fungus #fungal #winter #winterforaging #plant #flower #fruit #gardening #wintergardening #mycelium #mycelia #shroom #shrooms #nature #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #flowers #kingoyster #pleurotus

  • Have you ever seen two mushrooms very similar in appearance and wondered if they are the same? Aside from the location they are found and their many physical characteristics, mushrooms have a unique and super cool way of showing their true identity! The term is called, "spore print." Spore prints are an important diagnostic character in field guides and keys for identifying mushrooms. A spore print is the powdery deposit obtained by allowing spores of a fungal fruit body to fall onto a surface underneath. The spores can range in color from white, cream, shades of brown, reds, purples, and black. When many thousands of spores fall and collect, a spore print can appear. The color of the spore print is what you will compare with descriptions from field guides and keys. When two spore prints look identical, their spores can be looked at under a microscope for positive ID. It is important to note that different mushrooms spread their spores in a variety of ways. At Mycelium Mysteries we have a mushroom identification table AND A SPORE PRINT STATION! How neat! Our spore print station provides a fun and hands on experience for the beginner and advanced Wise Woman! Join us and learn how to make a spore print of your own! When? September 27-29, 2019 Where?

  • 💌 Dear Fungus, a love poem: I love your weird and wild everything. I love your cups, your clubs, and your corals, Your jelly – and those that are smelly, I love your gills and your frills, Your shapes and your colors, Your eye-popping, jaw-dropping vibrant reds – Hues of purple, pink, teal, and gooey green, Itty bitty yellows and monstrous orange fellows to be seen, I love the way you look, the way you feel, the way you smell. I love the way you inspire so well. ✨ I love to learn from you, and about you – Where do you like to grow? Push through the soil and break through? What substrates you prefer? Wood chips, dog poop, sodden wood – The ground where towering trees once stood? Which trees are you compatible with? How you can make our world a cleaner, safer; How can you help us be better neighbors – To make our earth a healthier home? 🌎 You are bold, stunning, unapologetic. You are brilliant in your resilience, ‘Cause you don’t give up in the face of adversity, And you give me courage to be me, and to be free. You remind me of purpose, And of nature’s vital significance. You remind me how nature keeps me healthy, Keeps me happy, Keeps me infatuated with what I do; And how this is important – For the mushrooms, for me and for you. 🍄 I love the way you touch all of us, I love the way you touch me, And I love the way you remind us what splendor is right before us – Should only we choose to see. 🔍 Happy Valentine’s Day, lovelies! ❤️

  • I made a mistake and homogenized the mix right after my last post. Effectively breaking up the #fungi that had already began spreading • 2 days ago I sifted through and separated the #fungal and wood chunks (and found a lot of #earthworms) and placed them at the top with a top layer of leaves to keep the moisture in. • Open it today and am #rewarded with a pleasant view of healthy #fungus doing its work while I know my worms are happy churning the lower regions #compost #fungalcompost #innoculate #microbes #microorganisms #worms
