Fungi, the word for more than one fungus, can be found on different parts of the body. Common types include tinea (ringworm), a type of fungal infection of the hair, skin or nails; athlete's foot, which usually appears between the toes but can also affect toenails and the bottom or sides of the feet; jock itch, a fungal infection of the groin and upper thighs; and candida, a yeast, similar to a fungus. It most often affects the skin around the nails or the soft, moist areas around body openings.
