Tinea Infections

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 03 May 2022

Tinea is the name of a group of diseases triggered by a fungus. Types of tinea consist of ringworm, professional athlete's foot and jock itch. Symptoms depend on the affected area of the body: Ringworm is a red skin breakout that forms a ring around normal-looking skin. A worm doesn't cause it. Scalp ringworm causes scratchy, red patches on your head. Jock itch causes a scratchy, melting rash in your groin area. Over-the-counter creams and powders will remove many tinea infections, particularly athlete's foot and jock impulse.
