Caption: Tinea. Close-up of the buttocks of a 33 year old woman with a tinea infection. The infection is caused by any of a group of fungi, most commonly dermatophytes, and is commonly called ringworm. Here, the infection started at the perineum (the area between the genitals and the anus), and spread from there to the buttocks. The rash causes itching and irritation. The condition is contagious, and can be caught by contact with an affected person, or even from a chair or other object. A course of antifungal drugs in the form of a cream is used on localised infections, but more extensive cases may require tablets for oral administration.
