Extensive dermatophytosis occurs solely due to the growth of fungus over or under the skin layer causing irritation on the skin. Sometimes red rashes or textured skin occurs with fluid accumulated inside it which creates a lot of pain in the area accompanied with foul smell at times. This is caused due to the infection made by ""ringworm"" which arises due to the lack of hygiene in daily life.
