Fungal infection, also called Mycosis, is a skin infection caused by a fungus that attacks the tissue of a particular area of the skin first. Then it spreads to other parts of the body like other tissues, bones, and organs, and in some cases, it even affects the whole body.
These skin infections usually occur in the damp areas of the body, like the feet or armpit. They are usually non-contagious and not life-threatening.
