TINEA

Tinea is a common skin infection caused by a fungus. It most often affects warm, moist areas of skin and commonly occurs between the toes and around the groin. It can also affect other body areas, including the scalp and nails. Most cases of tinea can be effectively treated with medicines available from a pharmacist. Tinea is sometimes called ringworm, even though it has nothing to do with worms and the skin rash is not always ring-shaped. Tinea spreads from person to person directly through skin-to-skin contact, or indirectly through towels, clothes, shoes, bedding, mats and floors. People can also catch it from animals with tinea (e.g., cats, dogs, horses, mice, guinea pigs).
