A group of 18 people, including four women, on bicycles rode through the state, declaring "war" on fungal infections.
Some Pune-based doctors also participated in the rally with the theme 'Fangal pe Dangal' to promote and create awareness of taking fungal infections seriously and consulting dermatologists instead of resorting to self-medication.
"There is an epidemic of fungal infection in India these days. People resort to self medication and these medicines consists of steroids, which make the things worse," said Narendra Pattvardhan, a Pune-based dermatologist.
The rally began on January 5 from Udaipur then reached Jodhpur on Tuesday and would culminate in Jaisalmer on January 11, said Dr Dilip Kachhawaha, the local coordinator of the rally.
