Fungi are naturally located on our skin just like bacteria. When the balance between good and bad fungi is disturbed, a fungal infection occurs. In skin fungus, this happens when the fungus invades and infects the skin.
When the skin is scaly, red and itchy, it may be a skin fungus.

The most common symptoms of skin fungus are discolored patches of skin on which flakes or fissures may appear. Often these pieces of skin are located in folds or other moist places. Skin fungus (skin) usually also causes itching.
Skin fungus is a common problem in general practice, occurring in about 43 out of every 1,000 patients. The cause is an imbalance between good and bad fungi on the skin. Also, the risk of skin fungus increases with age.
A skin fungus can be treated in several ways. For simple and superficial skin fungus, topical treatment with a cream is preferred. The doctor can choose between different types of antimycotics, or, antifungal drugs. For fungal infections deeper in the skin, an oral antimycotic (antifungal medication in tablets) will be prescribed.
In many cases, you can prevent skin fungus by washing your skin without soap, always drying everything thoroughly and making sure you always wear clean clothes. In addition, it is still important to have a healthy immune system.
A skin fungus is not dangerous at first, but walking around with it is never a good idea. Indeed, a weakened immune system can lead to several other ailments. From as soon as you know you are dealing with a skin fungus, you can discuss with your doctor what the right treatment is for you.
