Dermatophytosis is a clinical condition caused by fungal infection of the skin in humans, pets such as cats, and domesticated animals such as sheep, goats and cattle. The infection initially presents itself with red patches on affected areas of the skin and later spreads to other parts of the body. The infection may affect the skin of the scalp, feet, groin, beard, or other areas.
HOW IS DERMATOPHYTOSIS DIAGNOSED?
A dermatology specialist will examine your skin using a black light as the fungus tends to glow in this case. Skin biopsy may be needed. A KOH exam may be conducted to further investigate the condition.
HOW IS DERMATOPHYTOSIS TREATED?
The treatment for this ailment includes prescription medication like Ketoconazole cream as well as other home based remedies. You could try wearing loose and light clothing so that the affected areas do not get further irritated.
