Caption: Fungal skin infection. Young infant with an extreme, severe case of scabies and ringworm and other fungal infections, causing white scaling and scarring of the skin. Such severe infections in young infants can be fatal if left untreated, as they can overload the immune system. Photographed in the Dreikkir region, a remote area of Papua New Guinea's East Sepik Province.
