'Tinea has no connection to COVID-19'

Thursday, 05 August 2021 - 9:45

Dermatologists say tinea is a skin disease that is not directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The skin disease is caused by a species of fungus found in humans, animals, and soil, and is reported to grow on the nails, scalp, and outer layer of the skin.

Doctors point out that these symptoms are more common in areas where itching of the skin, red spots, and perspiration are more common and can occur at any age.

Experts say that the disease can be prevented by keeping the skin clean and moisturized, avoiding the shared use of clothing, and using non-abrasive clothing.

Dermatologists recommend that you seek medical attention immediately if symptoms persist.
