Athlete’s Foot, otherwise known as Tinea Pedis, is an infection of the skin and feet that can be caused by different fungi. Meanwhile, the major causative fungus is the dermatophyte Trichophyton which exists harmlessly on human skin but multiplies rapidly under damp conditions.
Ringworm, also known as Tinea corporis, is a very common fungal infection that affects the skin. Anyone can get infected with ringworm. The name ‘ringworm’ does not indicate that worm is involved. Instead, it is due to the appearance of an itchy, circular rash with clearer skin in the middle.
