What is Tinea Corporis?
Tinea Corporis, also known as ringworm, tinea circinata, and tinea glabrosa, is a superficial dermatophytosis of the arms and legs, especially on glabrous skin excluding the scalp, beard, face, hands, feet, and groin. Trichophyton rubrum is the most common cause of tinea corporis worldwide as it spreads from those who infected with tinea pedis. As the most often cause of tinea capitis, Trichophyton tonsurans is another frequent cause of tinea corporis. Microsporum canis is a causative organism of tinea corporis in children when the spread is from animals.
