Caption: Ringworm lesion. Close-up of a single ringworm lesion, known as Tinea corporis, on a patient's body. Ringworm is a fungal infection on the surface of the skin, usually the scalp and feet. It is caused by various species of fungi including Microsporum, Trichophyton and Epidermophyton. Ringworm is highly contagious, and is spread by direct contact or via infected material. The ring- shaped lesions cause intense itching. Athlete's foot, tinea pedis, is perhaps the commonest form of ringworm, followed by tinea capitis, or ringworm of the scalp. Tinea corporis refers to lesions on the body. Treatment is with topical anti-fungal agents such as Mycota.
