Ringworm is a contagious fungal infection of the skin that affects people of all ages and can affect different areas of body including the feet, nails, skin, scalp or groin. Dermatophytosis is more commonly known as ringworm because of the red, ring like rash it makes on the skin. The infected areas tends to be very itchy but can be treated easily with topical creams.
Athlete's Foot, known medically as Tinea Pedis, occurs when a fungus called Trichophyton multiplies on the surface of your skin. The skin then becomes itchy, sore and dry which causes the symptoms usually associated with fungal infections. Athlete's Foot can be treated with over-the-counter remedies as well as being prevented by following certain hygiene rules.
Jock Itch can be an embarrassing condition for some but it can be easily treated by using anti-fungal creams, spray and talcum powders. It is commonly caused by the same fungus responsible for Athlete's Foot and Ringworm.
