There are many kinds of fungi (called candida and tinea) which can infect the skin and/or mucous membranes; they may also grow under the nails, between toes, or on the inside surfaces of the colon and other vital organs. Fungal infection of the skin is most common in places where skin is often moist and one skin surface is in contact with another, for example the groin area "jock itch" and between the toes "athlete's foot". However, moist, possibly itchy, red patches anywhere on the body may also indicate fungal infection. In babies, a fungal infection like diaper rash makes the skin bright red in light-skinned babies and darker brown in dark-skinned babies. Fungal infection of the mouth is called oral thrush, a condition in which creamy looking white patches form on the tongue and the mucous membranes of the mouth. If the patches are scraped off, bleeding can happen. This condition is most common in infants and in those with compromised immune systems. Nursing mothers sometimes develop a candida infection of the nipples that causes severe pain while feeding. This can be further complicated if the baby develops oral thrush; it can lead to a ping-pong type effect in which mother and baby continually re-infect each other.

Prevention - keeping the skin clean and dry, as well as maintaining good personal hygiene, will help prevent larger topical mycoses. Because fungal infections are contagious then it is important to wash after touching either other persons or animals. Sports and other clothing should also be washed after being used. Wearing flip flops when going to a community swimming pool or shower can also help prevent topical infections.

Yeast infections in the vagina, caused by candida albicans, may be treated with medicated suppositories whereas skin yeast infections are treated with medicated ointments. There are also alternative herbal methods that help support the body's immune system

Antifungal drugs are used to treat fungal infections mycoses. Depending on the nature of the infection, a topical or systemic agent may be used. Photochemotherapy or photopheresis are other methods used at medical centers for the treatment of mycosis fungoides.

Another is amphotericin B which is more potent and it is used in the treatment of the most severe fungal infections that show resistance to other forms of treatment and it is often administered intravenously.

Drugs to treat skin infections are Tolnaftate / Tinactin, an over the counter topical, Ketoconazole, especially used to treat tinea versicolor and other dermatophytes, Itraconazole, Terbinafine / Lamisil; Echinocandins / caspofungin, Griseofulvin, commonly used for scalp and nails infections.
