Scalp fungus is commonly referred to as ringworm, which is a bit of a misnomer because the condition is not caused by worms. Rather, it has its name because of the round rings that appear on your scalp. The skin on infected areas may appear normal near the center of the round patch, but it will probably look irritated near the edges.
Ringworm is more common among children than adults, although anyone can get it. It occurs on the scalp or, on an adult, even underneath facial hair. Other fungal infections on the body are caused by ringworm, too. Jock itch and athlete's foot, caused by fungus that thrives in sweaty places like locker rooms and gym shoes, affect the groin area and feet.
The main difference between scalp fungus and fungus elsewhere on the body is that scalp fungus can be trickier to treat and scalp fungus is contagious through contact.
Fungus also is responsible for dandruff aslo called seborrheic dermatitis that is caused by a yeast-like fungus known as malassezia. Malassezia feeds on oils, such as those secreted from the hair follicles. The waste products from this feeding irritate the skin in sufferers.
Fungus is thought to lead to many scalp problems that include redness, flaking, itching and dandruff.
