The most common fungal infections are athlete's foot, candidiasis, jock itch, ringworm, and fungal infection of the toenail (onychomycosis). Most fungal infections are caused when the fungal spores present in the environment come in contact with the skin or are inhaled. Fungal infections are usually diagnosed by collecting a sample from the skin rash and looking for any fungus under the microscope. People with a compromised or weak immune systems like children, elders, cancer patients, HIV, etc., athletes who sweat a lot and wear wet shoes, and obese people are more prone to get fungal infections.
