Fungal infections are caused by single or multicellular organisms that cause skin infections (tinea). The most common form of fungus is yeast, which is already present in the human body, but a rise in its amount may lead to infection. Dermatophytes are fungi that develop on the human body and infect the top layer of skin, nails, and hair. There are several forms of fungal infections, and each may arise in different locations of the body. However, it is more prevalent in regions with excessive sweating, such as body folds, in between the toes, and so on.
Redness, rash, itching, skin irritation, unpleasant odor, oozing or flaking, or blackish coloring are some of the symptoms. There may be yellowish scales on the scalp. When nails are involved, discoloration or damage might occur.
