Caption: Ringworm infection on a boy's head (tinea capitis). The infection has caused hair loss (alopecia) from a small area. Ringworm (tinea) is a disease caused by a fungal infection. It can be caused by various fungi, including Microsporum and Trichophyton. The affected areas are usually itchy. The disease is highly contagious, and can be spread by direct contact or by contact with contaminated material. It is most common on the feet, where it is known as athlete's foot (tinea pedis). Treatment is with antifungal drugs.
