Tinea - Fungal Infection

What is Tinea Infection (Ringworm)?

Tinea infection, often known as ringworm, can be an irritating and long-lasting condition. Tinea fungal infection can affect many different parts of the body, like the scalp, foot, groin, etc. Tinea is also most commonly known as ringworm due to the distinctive red, ring-shaped sores that are caused on the body.

The name ringworm is solely due to the appearance of the fungal infection, and the spread of the disease does not involve worms of any kind. Some of the most common types of tinea infections, depending on the part of the body they affect, are tinea pedis or athlete’s foot between the toes, tinea cruris, or jock itch in the groin and inner thighs.

Tinea Versicolor or Pityriasis Versicolor is another type of fungal infection which occurs on the neck, shoulder, upper back, and chest. It is usually asymptomatic and clinically seen as dark or light-coloured patches on the affected area. This is non-contagious.

But we’re here to help you get the relief you deserve. Our Tinea cruris therapies reduce the itching, redness, and circular rashes that are common with Tinea infections.

Tinea Causes

Tinea, often referred to as ringworm, is a common fungal infection that can affect the skin, nails, and even the scalp. Tinea is primarily caused by dermatophyte fungus, which thrives in warm, damp conditions such as locker rooms and swimming pools. These fungi can also be passed from person to person or animal to human. Understanding the causes of tinea is critical for preventing its incidence and spread.

Types of Tinea

Tinea manifests its symptoms in a range of ways, including athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), ringworm (tinea corporis), and jock itch (tinea cruris). Each variety focuses on a different part of the body, resulting in distinct symptoms.

Athlete’s Foot (Tinea Pedis): This affects the feet, typically between the toes, and is characterized by itching, redness, and sometimes peeling skin.

Ringworm (Tinea Corporis): This form of tinea can appear anywhere on the body, causing circular, red, and scaly rashes.

Jock Itch (Tinea Cruris): Typically found in the groin area, jock itch leads to itching, redness, and a rash.

Tinea is a common fungal infection with various types, each targeting different body parts and presenting distinct symptoms.
