Tinea is a common fungal infection often known as ringworm (IT IS NOT A WORM).  Tinea Corporis on the body responds well to topical antifungal creams, but if the nails (Tinea Ungium) or scalp (Tinea Capitis) are involved, the oral antifungals are required often for a prolonged period of time.  Ringworm (Tinea) is most often acquired from cats and dogs, especially kittens and puppies.
