Symptoms

Most people colonized by these molds have no symptoms at all. Others complain of itching, a bad odor, or a rash. In ringworm, a rash occurs at the site of the infection and consists of a scaly area surrounded by redness at the outer margin, producing irregular rings or a lacy pattern on the skin. On the scalp, patchy areas of hair loss can occur, with a fine stubble of short hair left behind. Involved nails become thickened and brittle and may separate from the nailbed. Sometimes, a rash consisting of fine papules and vesicles develops distant from the infected area. This rash is referred to as a dermatophytid, or "id" reaction, a reflection of allergy to products of the infecting fungus.
