Superficial fungal infections of the skin are common on all continents. Errors in the diagnosis and treatment of these patients are often observed. The lack of symmetry of the process, erythematous-squamous foci with a raised roller and more pronounced peeling along the periphery, polycyclic and annular outlines, as well as the presence of papules and pustules in the lesion can give a hint in making a correct diagnosis. Laboratory tests (microscopy and seeding) are mandatory for accurate diagnosis.

This article presents photos with anamnesis of the disease and treatment options for common superficial fungal infections of the skin.
