Fungal Diseases of the Skin and Nails
Whether skin or nails: the best treatment is at our fingertips.
The appearance of fungal diseases on the skin is very diverse and largely depends on the type of pathogen present. Infections of the filamentous fungus Trichophyton rubrum (the most common pathogen in Europe) are visible as red, scaly, circular foci that spread circularly.
Fungal diseases, which frequently occur in the creases of the body, can be bright red in parts, weeping and with a pustular seam. Infections of the fungus Malassezia initially develop red, scaly foci which do not tan when exposed to the sun and are visible as white spots on the skin.
