Tinea corporis is commonly known as "ring worm." Tinea corporis is the term used for fungal infection of the skin. The fungus causes a characteristic lesion which is often clear in the center with a rough, scaly, circular border. The lesions vary in size from very small circular patches to very large patches. Diagnosis is aided through scraping the lesion and examining the scales under the microscope.
As I woke up in deep pain from my out of place rib and itching body from what I thought has been just a really bad case of eczema the past year I made my way to the chiropractor for an adjustment an the doctor to get some kind of antibiotic for my skin, only to discover I didn't have eczema.. I have ringworm. Very turned off. Thank You! Thank you very much!
