Health Tip: Finding Fungal Infections

Here's what to watch for

(HealthDay News) -- Fungal conditions are relatively common in people with diabetes, and may cause an uncomfortable, itchy rash.

The American Diabetes Association offers this information about a fungal skin infection:

  • It can lead to red, itchy, moist patches surrounded by scales and small blisters.
  • Common areas for these infections are at the groin area, armpits, beneath the breasts, in the corners of the mouth, beneath the foreskin of uncircumcised men, between fingers and toes, and under the nails.
  • The most common types of fungal infections include athlete's foot, ringworm, "jock itch" and vaginal infections.
  • Speak with your doctor if you believe you have a fungal infection.
