Caption: Fungal infections. Artwork of fungi (magnified in foreground, blue; and in petri dish, green) and various fungal skin infections. These are known as ringworm, the common name for tinea, a group of fungal infections of the skin, hair or nails. Most are caused by dermatophyte fungi. Infection is often marked by ring-shaped, reddened, scaly or blistery patches on the skin. The woman (bottom) has Microsporum canis, a ringworm infection often spread from animals to humans. The foot (top) is an example of tinea pedis (athlete's foot). Proper foot care should prevent infections. Treatment is with antifungal powders.
