What are Fungal Skin Infections?
Fungal skin infections are caused by dermatophyte, a type of fungus. Some common types of fungal skin infections are ringworm, athletes foot and cutaneous candidiasis. Here is detailed information about skin infections caused by different types of fungi.
Symptoms of skin fungus may vary with a causative agent. Fungal skin infections generally appear as a rash. Ringworm causes ring-shaped, red or pink, slightly itchy patches with a clear center. Jock itch appears as ring-like red rash around the groin area. It is in the form of small, painful, extremely itchy blisters. Athletes foot appears as itchy, scaly rash between the toes. There may be mild irritation or cracking and peeling of the skin. Skin becomes sore and susceptible for bacterial infection. Scalp ringworm is highly contagious among children. Nail ringworm affects toenails and makes the nail appear dull and thickened. Infected part of nail may fall apart from rest of the nail. Candida infection typically occurs in moist and warm areas of the body such as skin folds and diaper areas. Superficial candidal skin infection appears as red, flat rash with scalloped, sharp edges. Small patches appearing like rash are known as satellite lesions. They can cause pain or itching. Sometimes, fungal infection on one body part can cause rash on another body part. This condition is known as an allergic reaction to fungus. Learn More
