Fungal Infections of the Skin

Fungal Infections of the Skin

Fungal infections of the skin or nails, also referred to as tinea, are quite common. Fungal infections are contagious and thrive in warm, moist areas. A comb, clothing, shower surface, or pool area can harbor tinea. Common fungal infections include: athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), jock itch (tinea cruris), ringworm (tinea corporis), scalp ringworm (tinea capitis), and nail fungus (onychomycosis, tinea unguium).
