Skin infections are not only dreadful, but irritating as well. They end up giving us weird appearance and sufferings in unimaginable ways. Infections caused by fungus are a major cause of concern. It is important to identify and treat them at the right time before they spread and become severe.

The fungal infections are of the following types:

  • Ringworm
  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Jock Itch
  • Yeast Infection

Ringworm:

Also known by the name of Tinea corporis, this is a fungal infection that results in circular, red and flat sores on any part of the body. Not to be confused by the name, it is an infection due to fungus, not worms. This infection is contagious and can be transferred through direct and indirect contact.

Athlete’s Foot:

Also known by the name of Tinea pedis, this infection affects the feet and causes redness, itching, peeling, burning, sores and blisters. This is a very common type of infection and the causative fungus grows in moist and warm environment, like shoes, lockers and swimming pools. This infection is most common in summers and places with a humid climate. The fungi responsible for causing Athlete’s foot live on the dead tissues of toenails and outer skin layers.

Jock Itch:

Also known by the name of Tinea cruris, this infection affects the genitals, buttocks and inner thighs. Jock itch is caused by a fungus that grows in warm and moist areas of the body, causing red and itchy rash, mostly in a ring like shape. This infection is contagious and can transfer from person to person through direct or indirect contact.

Yeast Infection:

Also known by the name of Cutaneous candidiasis, this infection is caused by a yeast-like fungus, Candida. This infection occurs when the yeast grows actively on the body, resulting in scaling, itch and rash onto the skin. Yeast infection can occur on any part of the body and grows mainly in warm, creased and moist areas like groins and armpits.

For curing these infections, the advised treatment is to apply antifungal ointment on the affected area till the symptoms vanish completely. Ring-Out is a progressive solution available for this in the market. It relieves symptoms of ringworm, itching, skin infections, reduces redness and swelling and terminates the growth of fungus.
