Extensive dermatophytosis: Everything to know

About

Extensive Dermatophytosis is the infection on the skin that occurs due to fungal attack.

7 out of 10 people having extensive dermatophytosis are unaware of it.[1]

- Medical diagnosis required
- Lab tests or imaging are often needed
- Can happen to both men and women
- Can be very painful

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.

Ages affected – this can happen to anybody of any age group since it is not age dependent and mostly caused due to lack of hygiene.
