Red face and fungi infection.
Red face syndrome is characterized by an erythematous dermatitis that is produced by different entities. These include rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, cutaneous lupus, photodermatosis, post-topical steroid dermatosis, demodicosis, borderline borderline (BB) leprosy, mastocytosis, carcinoid, postneoplasia flushing, cutaneous lymphoma, tineas, ulerythema ophryogenes, and psychosomatic flushing. Red face is a relatively common dermatologic manifestation. Our goal is to review tinea corporis and other fungi that affect this region causing facial erythema and its therapeutic management.
