Tinea (read:tih-nee-uh) is a type of fungal infection on hair, skin and nail. This infection will show an effect that is begins as a small red area the size of a pea. As it grows, it spreads out in a circle or ring. Tinea is often called ringworm because it may look like tiny worms are under the skin (ringworm) live on different parts of the body, they are named for part of the body they infect. Scalp ringworm is found on the head, and body ringworm affect the arms, legs, or chest.

Fungal infection often happen on the athlete’s foot, a fungal infection of the groin and upper thighs. You might think only men and boys get it, but girls and women can get it, too.

Diaper rash in babies can be from one type of candidal infection, as can thrush (white patches often found in the mouths of babies). Older girls and women may develop another form of candidal infection in and around the vagina. This is called a yeast infection.
