They are usually itchy, reddish, and ring-like lesions.
Furthermore, Dr. Jangid, a known name in the dermatology world says that there are several names for tinea that depends on the area it occurs. For example, if it occurs in the thigh area, it is known as ‘Tinea Cruris’.
If tinea starts to turn visible on your body, it’s known as ‘Tinea Corporis’.
Whereas if tinea starts appearing on the face, it is known as ‘Tinea Faceii’.
‘Tinea Versicolor’ is another variant of fungal infection which occurs on dead skin. The area it covers majorly includes face, chest, or upper back and arms. As per Dr. Jangid’s expertise, these are slight whitish or brownish patches that are not reddish in appearance. There’s no itching accompanied by it, usually occurring in summers and vanishing in winters.
