Tinea Infections

Tinea is the name of a group of skin and nail diseases caused by a fungus. Types of tinea include:

  • Tinea pedis – foot infection (Athlete’s foot)
  • Tinea cruris – infections affecting the groin, also called “Jock itch”
  • Tinea capitis – scalp
  • Tinea corporis – body areas, aka ringworm
  • Tinea barbae – beards
  • Tinea unguium – nails

Most of these infections are usually not serious, but they can be uncomfortable. You can get them by touching an infected person, from damp surfaces such as shower floors, or even from a pet.
