Pictures of Fungal Skin Infections

Medically Reviewed by Debra Jaliman, MD on August 20, 2022

Fungal skin infections can be itchy and annoying, but they’re rarely serious. Common infections such as athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm are caused by fungus and are easy to get and to pass around. In healthy people, they usually don’t spread beyond the skin’s surface, so they’re easy to treat. If you spend a lot of time at the gym, take steps to protect yourself against fungal infections.


Ringworm isn’t caused by worms. This raised, red, circular, itchy fungal infection can occur on the body or scalp. You’re at greater risk if you come in contact with a pet or person with ringworm or with contaminated items. Prevent it by keeping your body clean and dry. It’s easily spread, so don’t share towels, combs, or other personal items.

Itchy, burning, cracked, and peeling feet? Athlete’s foot is a form of ringworm that usually develops between the toes. It can spread via wet locker room floors and contaminated towels and shoes. Prevent it by wearing shower shoes at the gym, washing your feet daily, drying them well, and wearing clean socks.

A raised, itchy, red rash around your groin means you probably have jock itch, which can affect men and women. It’s another type of ringworm, and it can be caused by sweating and the humid environment often created by athletic gear. You can prevent it by keeping your groin clean and dry, changing into dry, clean clothes and underwear every day, and avoiding tight clothing.

Brittle, discolored, thick nails may mean you have nail fungus. It can affect fingernails or toenails. Prevent nail fungus by keeping hands and feet clean and dry, wearing dry socks and changing them often, wearing shoes in a public shower, pool, or locker room, and not scratching infected skin, such as athlete’s foot. Wear wide-toed shoes (so toes aren’t crammed together), and don’t share nail clippers.

Change out of your gym clothes right after a workout. Sweaty gear provides a perfect home for fungi and other germs to thrive and grow. Wash exercise clothes after each use. Wear clean clothes before each workout.

To prevent fungal infections from taking a foothold at home, your best defense is to keep skin clean and dry. Change underwear and socks daily. Let your sneakers air out and wash them regularly. Take your shoes off at home to expose your feet to the air.

To fight fungal infections at the gym, wear shower shoes in the locker room and avoid sitting on wet benches. Don’t share workout mats or towels. Wash your hands before and after a workout, and don’t forget to wipe down gym equipment before and after using it.

Despite your best efforts at prevention, you think you have a fungal infection. Now what? First, talk to your doctor. Other skin problems can look a lot like fungal infections, but require different treatment. For mild infections, topical medication may be all you need. Stubborn infections could require oral prescription drugs.

Fungal skin and nail infections may look bad, but they rarely lead to more than itching and irritation. Still, if you’re worried about your jock itch, athlete’s foot, or any rash, talk to your health care provider.

Rosacea, Hives, Psoriasis, and More

Medically Reviewed by Debra Jaliman, MD on February 25, 2023

These red welts usually itch. They can be a sign of an allergic reaction, but stress or an illness can cause them, too. A hive will usually go away within a day, but a new one could pop up in its place. You may only get a few, or you could have a bunch that connect and spread across your body. If they get worse or don’t go away, see your doctor for treatment. If you have trouble breathing or swallowing, get medical help ASAP.

This prickly red rash, which may be bumpy and is usually itchy, happens in hot, humid weather. It tends to show up in places where your skin rubs together, like your armpits and groin. It’s common in babies but can also happen to adults who get sweaty and overheated. It usually goes away on its own in 3-4 days. If it doesn’t, or if it starts to swell or ooze, call your doctor.

This happens when your skin reacts to something it touches. Sometimes it’s an allergic reaction (such as to poison ivy), and sometimes it’s irritation (from perfumes in soap, for example). Contact dermatitis can be a rash, hives, dry skin, or blisters. Your skin can turn thick or flaky, and it may darken or crack. Sometimes it takes time to figure out what’s caused it. Work with a dermatologist, especially if it gets worse.

There are a few types of this disease, but the most common, plaque psoriasis, shows up as raised red patches with a scaly layer of dead skin cells on top. You’ll usually see it on your scalp, knees, elbows, and lower back, but the blotches can appear anywhere on the body. Most people first notice it between the ages of 15 and 35, but the disease can crop up at any time.

The condition causes patches of very dry, itchy skin. Over time, these areas can thicken and turn lighter or darker than the rest of your body. Most people who have eczema first get it before age 5, and about half will outgrow it by the time they’re adults. But it’s not uncommon for adults to start having symptoms.

If you notice blotches or flushing across your cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead, you might have this skin condition. Sometimes, small pimple-like bumps form and blood vessels get more visible. Usually, it starts after age 30, then gets redder and more constant. Many things can trigger rosacea or make it worse, including drinking alcohol, eating spicy foods, stress, and menopause. There’s no cure, but treatments can control the symptoms.

This painful rash with blisters usually shows up as a single stripe on one side of the body. (You might have tingling or itching a few days before you see it. ) It’s caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox — the virus stays in your body and, even decades later, can flare up and cause shingles. It’s most common in people over 60. It should clear up in 2-4 weeks, but see your doctor to get medicine to prevent lasting nerve pain.

Also called broken capillaries, these are tiny blood vessels, located close to the surface of the skin, that get larger and more visible. The result is blotchiness and uneven skin tone on areas like the legs and face. Spider veins have many causes and are twice as common in women.  They’re not harmful, but you can have them treated if you don’t like how they look.

These brown or gray-brown patches on the face come from sun exposure, hormone changes, or both. Melasma is much more common in women — pregnancy or birth control pills are common triggers. The patches usually show up on the forehead, upper lip, cheeks, chin, and nose. They can fade on their own after pregnancy or once you stop taking the pill, but treatments can help, too. A broad-spectrum sunscreen and strict sun avoidance will keep them from getting darker.

With this condition, patches of your skin lose color and appear lighter. Sometimes it happens on only a few parts of the body, but vitiligo can cover large areas (even the hair, eyes, and inside of the mouth). It happens when the cells that give skin and hair their color, called melanocytes, die. Vitiligo affects men and women of all races. A few different treatments may restore your skin.

This fungal infection, which is especially common in tropical climates, makes white, pink, red, or brown spots form on the skin. They can show up anywhere on the body, and sometimes they’re dry, scaly, and itchy. Tinea versicolor is most common in teens and young adults with oily skin. A doctor can prescribe medicine, cleansers, or pills to treat it.

When you drink, especially if you have one too many, your face can flush and look blotchy. And if you have a hangover the next day, the dehydration will make any redness worse. If your skin gets very red when you imbibe, you may have alcohol flush syndrome, which is caused by an enzyme problem (it’s common in people of East Asian descent). Or you could have rosacea, and alcohol triggers your symptoms.

Whether it’s with a chemical peel or a scrub, exfoliation removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin looking brighter and refreshed. But doing it too often or too aggressively can make your face redder, make skin problems worse, and cause dark spots to show up. Ask a dermatologist about the best way to exfoliate your skin type.

Skin fungus – treatment in Krivoy Rog: mycosis of the feet and hands

November 29, 2020

Fungal infections of the skin – treatment in Krivoy Rog: mycosis of the hands and feet, faceFungal skin lesions are a group of diseases caused by microscopic fungi. Many of them may be part of the normal microflora and be present in the structure of the skin throughout life. But there are also pathogens that cause local or generalized lesions. Therefore, we recommend immediate treatment of skin fungus in Krivoy Rog, in the dermatological center Mediton Clinic!

Fungal diseases of the skin, of which there are photos in this article and in other materials, are transmitted from person to person and are very contagious. To prevent infection with ringworm, a whole range of preventive measures is necessary, as well as a systematic examination by a dermatologist, which will prevent the development of the disease. If a skin fungus is detected in a patient, special anti-epidemic measures are recommended, as well as examination and treatment of fungal infection in family members who have similar diseases!

Causes of fungal infections

Pathogenic pathogens can affect the skin, nails and hair, and mucous membranes. The cause of development is not only the direct appearance of the fungus, but also auxiliary factors that ensure the adaptation of pathogens, their sustainable development in the body. Risk factors for fungal infections are as follows:
• Long-term use of drugs, in particular steroid drugs and antibiotics, affecting the microflora and immunity;
• Constant stress and systematic nervous disorders, severe somatic conditions;
• Cause fungal diseases of the skin hormonal failures, diseases in endocrinology;
• Circulatory disorders, other pathologies of the blood and blood vessels, mechanical damage to the skin surface, non-healing burns, wounds and abrasions;
• Poor immunity, lack of essential vitamins, micro and macro elements in the body;
• Allergic reactions causing fungal skin diseases;

• Seasonal exacerbations of certain chronic diseases, starvation, improper diet, physical exhaustion of the body;
• Provoke ringworm trophic ulcers, varicose veins, heart disease;
• Worm infestation, contact with animals, poor hygiene, overweight, excessive sweating;
• Poor environmental conditions or professional activities associated with relevant influencing factors;
• Promiscuous sex!

One of the main reasons for the development of dermatomycosis on the body is a violation of the protective properties of the skin due to microtraumas – friction, cuts, scratches, abrasions, as well as due to constant moisturizing and sweating, in case of using inappropriate ointments, hygiene products!

The fungus on the human skin multiplies and develops, causing serious harm to the body, which is initially mild. And, if in a person with healthy immunity, fungal infections are destroyed on their own, then in the case of a weakened protective reaction, pathogens find quite favorable conditions for their own life activity – a fungus appears on the skin, develops and spreads!

Causes of dermatomycosis, causes of fungus on the face, armpits and groinIn some cases, there is an intensification of the development of dermatomycosis, which affects the skin for several reasons at once, when they are combined:

• Mycosis of the facial skin with excessive sweating and poor hygiene, skin damage . More pronounced development in case of malnutrition and uncontrolled medication. The fungus is clearly visible on the face in the corners of the mouth, on the nose and chin, near the ears and in the ears – otomycosis;
• Head fungus – poor hygiene, reduced immunity and hormonal imbalance, as well as frequent skin microtraumas or an allergic reaction. Perhaps a combined course – a fungus on the head and seborrheic dermatitis, oily dandruff, folliculitis, eczema and psoriasis;
• Fungus on the back and ringworm on the abdomen – sweat, wearing the same clothes for a long time, for example, at the gym or at work, small scratches from the nails and infection, hormonal changes, bad habits;
• Inguinal ringworm on the genitals, fungus in the groin and on the pubis – sweat, hygiene, genital infections, antibiotics and dysbacteriosis, lack of vitamins, poor-quality linen, use of unsuitable household chemicals and allergies;
• Armpit fungus – sweating, poor hygiene, inappropriate deodorants, weakened immune system. The cause of mycosis under the arms is hormones, thyroid diseases, in the event of the development of which one of the most common symptoms is excessive sweating, you can also notice ringworm of the armpits after shaving, as well as ingrown hairs, irritation of the armpits;
• Dermatomycosis of the hands, fungus of fingers and nails – infection by contact, development against the background of hormonal changes, use of common manicure accessories, skin pathologies of the hands – eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, lichen, allergies;
• Foot fungus, tinea pedis – sauna or pool visits and infection, excessive sweating of the feet, hormones, vitamin deficiencies, skin diseases and poor nutrition. A fungus of the skin of the legs develops – fingers and feet, with poor hygiene, if uncomfortable shoes, boots or sneakers are out of season, and also while taking certain medications!

Fungal infections of the skin: classification

There are several classifications based on the clinical picture of the disease, pathogenesis, etiology and disease specifics. One of the systems is the Sheklakov classification:
• Keratomycosis, including piedra – a fungal disease of the hair, tiled mycosis and multi-colored lichen, which do not cause inflammation;
• Deep mycoses, including sporotrichosis and chromomycosis. Systemic damage to the structure of the skin and organs, metastasis through the lymphatic system and blood vessels;
• Dermatophytosis – microsporia, athlete’s groin, trichophytosis and others that are highly contagious. Dermatomycosis causes allergic reactions and inflammatory processes, affecting smooth skin, nail plates and, often, hair;
• Pseudomycosis, including nocardiosis and erythrasma – nodular formations without inflammation;
• Candidiasis – systemic and superficial candidiasis, other mucosal mycoses, fungal infections of the skin and vital organs!

Pay attention to the accounting system in European countries:
• Tinea barbae – a fungus of the skin of the face;
• Tinea manum – ringworm of the hands;
• Tinea pedis – fungal diseases of the feet;
• Tinea cruris – skin lesions in the folds or inguinal mycosis, Tinea unguim – nail fungus, onychomycosis;
• Tinea corporis – ringworm of the smooth skin of the body, Tinea capitis – fungal disease of the scalp under the hair!

Speaking of practicality, the classification is convenient, as it carries information about the localization of fungal infections. But it does not concern the features of etiology that determine the system of therapy and prevention!

Fungal diseases of the skin: clinical features

Clinical features of skin mycoses, manifestations of the fungus on the body • Mycosis of the face – fungal lesions of the skin of the neck, as well as in the lower lip and chin area. The formation of large abscesses from numerous pustules, the surface is bumpy. The defeat of the follicles, followed by painless hair extraction in the affected area. The superficial version of the fungus of the skin of the face is similar to a fungal infection of smooth skin;
• Dermatomycosis of the hands – floury peeling in the flexor grooves of the epidermis on the palms, the formation of cracks on the fingers and palms, itching and pain in the squamous form of the disease. Dyshidrotic fungus of the skin is expressed in small bubbles, prone to fusion;
• Mycosis of the feet – damage to the soles, as well as interdigital folds, unpleasant peeling, blistering, cracking is possible. Roughening and thickening of the stratum corneum, peeling on the feet. In the dyshidrotic type, fungal diseases of the legs cause the appearance of blisters, their fusion, cracks and erosions;
• Inguinal mycosis – detection on the inside of the thigh, fungus on the skin of the buttocks and lower abdomen. Erythematous lesions of the skin are noticeable – with limited intense redness. Over time, the color changes to more brown;
• Mycosis of the smooth skin of the body – versicolor with spots on the chest and back, as well as in the neck and shoulders. The spots are white and light brown with clear boundaries, without inflammation. If the skin is affected by other fungi, the formation of rounded edematous foci, as well as slight peeling, is possible!

Other dermatomycosis, among which mycosis of the scalp and onychomycosis – nail fungus, have already been described in detail in the referenced articles earlier. Please note important information. But also remember that any picture depicting a fungus on the skin, photos of ringworm of the fingers and feet, photos of fungal infections under the hair do not allow self-confirmation of the disease to start its treatment. Similar dermatological pathologies have a clear similarity, and the diagnosis of ringworm on the skin is the work of a specialist!

Mycoses – symptoms of fungal infections of the skin

Signs of the development of diseases are not always standard, because each individual pathology has its own manifestations. But there are classic symptoms that can be attributed to almost all fungal diseases of the skin:
• Burning sensation and mild or increasing itching, discoloration of the skin in the affected area, the appearance of spots, a change in surface structure;
• Peeling of the skin, blistering, hyperkeratosis, possible subsequent cracking and inflammation!

Diagnosis of fungal infections, skin infections on the body

An external examination is carried out in the dermatologist’s office, complaints are collected. Microscopy, cultural and serological analysis, histology, as well as a general and biochemical blood test are prescribed. Additionally, the Balzer test is used using tincture of iodine, as well as fluorescent fungus diagnostics with a Wood’s lamp!

Skin fungus should be studied carefully, and for this it is not enough to examine yourself in front of a mirror, even if you have studied mycoses well in the photo. The similarity of symptoms, the duration of treatment, as well as a number of complications of dermatomycosis indicate the need for professional diagnosis. And, if you have the opportunity to visit a doctor today, do it. Expert diagnosis of skin fungus is an accurate diagnosis and effective protocol treatment of ringworm!

Treatment of fungal infections of the skin, Kryvyi Rih

Standard treatment for dermatomycosis is symptomatic therapy, itching agents, nourishing creams, and taking antimycotics with corticosteroids or antibiotics. Therapy is complex and strictly individual, depending on the diagnosis.

It is important to follow the recommendations of a dermatologist and not deviate from the instructions, adjust the treatment of the fungus in time and not miss the re-examination and laboratory tests that are needed to control the course of the disease and its treatment!

If fungal skin diseases cannot be treated with antimycotic ointments and creams, topical agents, the doctor prescribes systemic antimycotics. An important part of therapy is prevention – personal hygiene, timely change of underwear and clothes, limited contacts to exclude infection, transmission of infection. Treating fungus on the skin is a lengthy process that may require several courses. An integrated approach is relevant in the case of the development of secondary infections, the appearance of skin lesions, the detection of nail fungus!

Fungus of the scalp, treatment, symptoms

Mycosis of the scalp is a disease that affects the hair, eyebrows, eyelashes. Few diseases look as unpleasant as scalp fungus. Contrary to outward appearance, illness is not the result of poor hygiene. On the contrary, too frequent contact with water, detergents, sterilizing the skin, can contribute to its development.

Mycosis of the scalp may or may not be inflamed.

The typical clinical picture of inflamed herpes zoster is an area of ​​erythema with flaking, hair loss. The edge is sharply demarcated, sometimes elevated, of a characteristic ring shape. When infected with zoophilic fungi, pustules, induration may appear, and when infected with anthropophilic fungi, inflammation is lighter. In addition, there is a massive destruction of hair follicles, fatty bumpy formations with acne, draining fistulas.

Signs of non-inflammatory herpes zoster – small patches of mild flaking with minimal hair loss. These lesions expand, creating large areas of baldness. Bristle hair usually forms on a flaky surface. The process can progress from a non-inflammatory variant to an inflamed one. Mycosis with black spots is characterized by mild inflammation, noticeable peeling, numerous black spots.

Characteristic symptoms of ringworm:

  • redness,
  • inflammation,
  • irreversible alopecia may occur in the area of ​​inflammatory foci,
  • scars after treatment.
  • The clip-on and finely spore form is commonly seen in children. For ringworm mycosis are characteristic:
  • numerous changes in the scalp,
  • epidermis peeling and redness,
  • single, round lesions,
  • perennial disease.

Fungus Prevention

The best way to prevent ringworm is to avoid contact with the pathogen. Mycosis of the scalp is a disease caused by dermatophytes. It can be transmitted by both humans and animals, so it is very important to follow basic rules that reduce the risk of infection.

  • Do not share towels, combs, hair brushes.
  • Avoid contact with animals that may carry the fungus, eg stray dogs, cats.
  • Frequent, thorough washing, drying hair.
  • Do not wear hats for a long time at high air temperatures.
  • Strengthening immunity during a period of increased risk of viral infections.
  • Balanced diet and regular meal times.

In most cases, the use of a fungal shampoo containing ketoconazole gives very good results. Nizoral, applied twice a week, is effective in reducing the symptoms of athlete’s foot and preventing serious complications.

After treatment, thoroughly clean items that come into contact with the scalp, such as towels, bath caps, hair combs, and use a prophylactic shampoo with anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties.

Diagnostic features

Many skin diseases can cause the same symptoms as mycosis of the scalp. These diseases include:

  • psoriasis,
  • asbestos dandruff,
  • alopecia areata, etc.

Features of the diagnosis of hair fungus will establish the disease, and provide an opportunity to prescribe the correct treatment.

In order to accurately establish the etiology of the disease, it is necessary: ​​

  • to carefully assess the morphology of changes, the general condition of the patient,
  • take a sample of the lesion for microscopic examination,
  • take a sample of the outbreak for culture,
  • evaluate the change in Wood’s lamp light.

Other fungal diseases

A more detailed clinical picture and the course of the disease depend on the type of mycosis of the scalp. The following species can be distinguished:

  • Fine spore mycosis: caused by the fungus Microsporum audoudinii, which occurs both inside and outside the hair. Sometimes they can be seen as whitish dots. In the infected area, there is a uniformly broken hair surrounded by a grayish tissue. In this case, the foci are more extensive, and their number is less. This type of athlete’s foot is highly contagious, especially among children.
  • Ringworm: caused by the fungus Trichophyton endothrix, which is found inside the hair shaft. The foci of the disease are numerous, grayish in color, in their area the hair breaks off of different lengths. The most characteristic sign of this type of disease is the appearance of yellow flakes several centimeters in size. They grow into the skin, and when removed, a scar is left on which the hair does not grow back. This type of mycosis most often appears in adolescence. Also, other types of the disease can be distinguished.
  • Surface. It is caused by anthropophilic fungi.
  • Inflammatory. The causative agent is zoophilic fungi.

How to treat scalp fungus

Fungal infections of the scalp are currently treated with the judicious use of antibiotics. They are introduced into therapy only when the bacterial background of the disease is confirmed. In addition, the treatment of infections should always be carried out after identifying the pathogen and determining its sensitivity to this antibiotic.

Antibacterial therapy will ensure the complete destruction of pathogenic bacteria. It will remove only a small number of microorganisms that naturally live on the surface of our skin and which, under normal conditions, protect against the invasion of other pathogenic microorganisms (for example, fungi).

Treatment of mycosis of the scalp is conservative and begins with the use of a shampoo containing the fungicidal ketoconazole (Nizoral) 2-3 times a week. The therapy lasts even several months, and in this form it is enough with a slight increase in lesions. A less toxic equivalent of ketoconazole that is increasingly being used orally in children is itraconazole.

Topical therapy may not be sufficient to treat significantly advanced lesions. The drug for oral use is fungistatic griseofulvin. However, it is rarely administered because, like most conventional antifungals, it can impair liver function.

Will lost hair grow back?

Most fungal infections of the scalp cause only temporary alopecia. These are: ringworm, with small spores, and mycosis with an inflammatory reaction caused by animal fungi. The fungus on the scalp can also affect the structure of the hair, depending on the type of disease. Some types of athlete’s foot are transient alopecia, which can be completely cured. Dealing with this problem is not at all easy. This takes a long time, and in some people the condition recurs from time to time.

Unfortunately, mycosis of the scalp is associated with some unpleasant consequences, such as alopecia and hair loss. Sometimes after an illness, the hair grows back spontaneously, and in other cases, a very effective treatment may be required, which will allow you to return beautiful, thick and healthy hair. These procedures must be performed by a professional.
