Tinea Barbae, also known as beard ringworm, is an infection of the areas of the face and neck that are bearded. The tinea barbae infection is almost exclusively seen in older teens and adult males. Tinea barbae is most frequently transferred from animals to humans, making agricultural workers most vulnerable to the infection. Symptoms of tinea barbae include itching of the beard and moustache area and development pink/red scaly patches. In many cases, the tinea fungus, caused by dermatophytes, is highly contagious and often spreads to multiple body parts of infected individuals. Tinea barbae can be cured with topical and oral antifungal medications.
