Fungal skin infections come in many forms, ranging from athlete’s foot to ringworm. These skin conditions are different than bacterial infections or allergic contact dermatitis, but they can have similar symptoms. Fungal skin infections require specific treatments to combat fungi growth. In LM Medical NYC, our dermatology team offers the diagnosis of fungal skin infections; treatment is also available at our clinic in Manhattan.

Causes, Symptoms and Types of Fungal Skin Infections

Fungal skin infections are caused by coming in contact with fungi spores that can infiltrate the skin and cause an infection. Fungi spores are found in the air and on moist surfaces, and fungi flourish in warm, moist areas (like mold). However, not everyone is as susceptible to skin fungal infections. Health and immune system problems can impact how likely you are to obtain a fungal infection.

There are many different types of fungal skin infections with varying symptoms. In general, fungal skin infection symptoms can include red, itchy, scaly and dry skin, but they can also cause blisters and swelling. The various types of fungal skin infections include:

  • Ringworm
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Yeast infections
  • Jock itch

Fungal skin infection treatment requires the use of anti-fungal medications to stop the growth of the fungi and to heal the skin. Lifestyle and other health factors can contribute to fungal skin conditions, and to prevent future infections, these issues should be addressed. Without treatment, fungal skin infections can spread to other parts of the body and other people, as well as cause skin, nail and hair growth issues.

If you have a fungal skin infection, it can be uncomfortable and also contagious to others. To receive a diagnosis and fungal skin infection treatment, contact us at LM Medical NYC at our clinic in Greenwich Village. We can schedule a skin examination with our board certified dermatologist.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
