Caption: Tinea. Close-up of the wrist of a patient affected by tinea, a fungal infection of the skin, scalp or nails commonly known as ringworm. Most tineal infections are caused by a group of fungi called the dermatophytes and are acquired from an animal, another person, soil, floors of showers or household objects such as chairs and carpets. Symptoms vary according to the site of the infections. Tinea corporis, ringworm of the body, is characterised by itchy patches, usually circular, with a prominent edge. Treatment is with antifungal drugs in the form of skin creams, lotions and ointments. For widespread infections antifungal drugs in tablet form may be necessary.
