Caption: Ringworm lesions (red) on the skin of the neck and face of a patient. Ringworm (tinea) is a fungal infection on the surface of the skin, usually the scalp and feet. It is caused by various types 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. Treatment is with antifungal drugs. This case of ringworm was caught from a cat.
