Symptoms of the infection will depend on the site of occurrence. To be specific, symptoms visible are different when the fungus affects the nails and the body or scalp. Also, the strains of fungi involved in causing the infection are not the same. For instance, the one that affects the toe or finger nails is known as 'Tinea unguium'. On the other hand, body fungal infection that affects the face, hands, legs and torso is triggered by Tinea corposis. Scalp infection is caused by Tinea capitis, and also referred to as ringworm of the hair.
