    Black fungus is also known as Mucormycosis. It spreads through fungal spores present in the environment – soil and air. It enters our body through the nasal passage and sometimes through any cut or wound in the skin. It affects the respiratory passage, in particular the sinuses and the lungs. It grows and develops in the sinuses leading to swelling in face.

    Other symptoms include-

    · Fever

    · Blackish nasal discharge

    · Swelling in the face

    · Redness in the face

    · Involuntary blinking of any one of the eyes

    · Blurred vision
