@tahasan Tinea Corporis is a superficial fungal infection of bare skin of the trunk and extremities caused by dermatophytes of the three genera i.e. Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Trichophyton. Trichophyton rubrum has been reported as the most common organism that leads to tinea corporis. Tinea corporis is also known as ringworm or tinea circinata or tinea cruris frequently diagnosed by dermatologists. The diagnosis of tinea corporis is made based on the clinical appearance and is further confirmed by culture or microscopy test. Topical or oral antifungal medications are used to cure superficial dermatomycoses
