pathogens are fungi of the genus Epidermophyton.There are two major clinical forms - athlete's foot and groin.
Athlete not only complicates the life of a man, but over time it becomes apparent very noticeable cosmetic defect.
causative agent of athlete's groin is a fungus Epidermophyton floccosum.It strikes the stratum corneum and is transmitted through the personal hygiene: sponges, vessel, sponges and so forth.
Risk factors for the development of this form of the disease is high humidity and ambient temperature, and sweating.Therefore groin - the ideal place for the development of the fungus, especially if a person is intensely involved in sports or heavy physical labor.
Disease Men are more prone than women.
Inguinal athlete strikes inguinal-femoral and mezhyagodichnye skin folds.The affected areas of the skin have a view of red-brown spots round s
