What is Fungus?
Fungus thrives in moist, dark environments. When parts of our bodies are exposed to a fungus through direct contact with an infected person or object, it can spread, causing a fungal infection. Common fungal infections like ringworm, athlete's foot, and jock itch present with itchy, burning, red skin. Some of our patients also experience fungal nail infections that cause the nails to thicken and become more brittle. If you believe you have a fungal infection and are interested in learning more about treatment, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with with one of our expert dermatology providers at your earliest convenience.
What Causes Fungus?
Fungal infections can be caused by direct exposure to a fungus, often occurring during contact sports or while walking around barefoot. Patients who are at a higher risk of developing a fungal infection have prolonged moisture in skin folds, share clothes with others, do not change out of damp clothes, and take part in activities that include a lot of skin-to-skin contact like wrestling.
