Overview of Fungal Skin Infections | Tinea Infections
Overview of Fungal Skin Infections including Tinea Pedis (Athlete’s Foot), Tinea Corporis (Ringworm), Tinea Cruris (Jock Itch), Tinea Capitis and Tinea Unguium.
Lesson on Tinea (Fungal) Skin Infections. Tinea infections are fungal infections of the skin caused by fungi of the genus trichophyton and epidermophyton. Tinea infections can occur anywhere on any epidermal surface, and each infection is named according to its location. For instance, ringworm can occur on various parts of the body including the face, neck, trunk, arms and legs, but other infections like fungal infection on the feet, is named as “Athlete’s foot”. Another example is tinea capitis, which is a fungal infection of the scalp of the head that can cause hair loss. The clinical presentation of tinea infections is related to the pathphysiology of the fungal species, which involves the fungi metabolizing and digesting a particular protein in our skin, hair and nails. Each tinea infection has particular clinical presentation, and we discuss each of these in detail.
