Tinea Inguinalis

Superficial fungus infection of the groins, mainly caused by E. floccosum, T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes. Infection may be transmitted by clothing, sheets, or towels. Autoinfection from the foot to the groin is also common. The lesions in the early stages are erythematous arciform plaques with sharp margins extending from the groin down the thighs. The colour may vary from red to brown, central clearing may be present, and a vesiculopustular border may be noted. Itching is a predominant feature, scaling is variable.
