Fungal infections

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

There is nothing more annoying then a fungal infection, especially one that is in a part of the body that is difficult to deal with.

Dr. Ruth Latham is treating ringworms on your body and scalp, athletes foot and jock itch.

A ringworm is a ring of a flaky red rash on the scalp; athletes foot is flaking skin peeling off the bottom of the foot; and jock itch is a rash in groin.

These infections are spread between people and infected people can spread the rash on their own body.

You should take steps to avoid infections by seeing your family physician for medication recommendations.
