Fungal Infections (i.e. “athlete’s foot”)
A fungus is a small plant that can grow on the skin. Fungal infections can occur anywhere on the body and thrives in warm, dark, moist areas. The feet, groin area, and under the breasts are particularly inviting spots for such infections. Symptoms include well-defined redness in the affected area, scaling, itching, burning, and sometimes small blisters. A person who is susceptible to fungal infections will most likely experience recurrences of the eruption.
Fungal infections can be treated with various over-the-counter creams, sprays, and lotions. If your eruption has not responded to such treatments or if the infection is severe or widespread, our providers can prescribe topical and/or oral medications.
