There are a variety of fungal skin infections, the majority of which are called “tinea,” also known as “ringworm.” These infections can come up anywhere on the body including the hands, feet, and scalp. Although often called “ringworm,” there is no actual worm associated with the condition. It gets its name because of the often circular appearance of the lesions. Often, it presents as a round pink patch with slightly raised, scaly edges with clearance in the center. It can be itchy, but not always. Fungal infections are contagious and often are triggered or exacerbated in warm, moist environments. Treatment options include both topical and oral medications.
