Mucormycosis: This disease is caused by a group of fungi, called mucarmycetes, which thrive throughout the environment.
Early signs of infection include nasal congestion, swelling of the eye or cheek, black dry crust in the nose, smelly runny nose, face numbness, fever, cold, unilateral headache, swelling or numbness, toothache, and tooth loosening. If laxity is observed, the infection can spread to the eyes and then to the brain as well.
