Tinea barbae. It is a fungal infection of the hair. Tinea barbae is due to a dermatophytic infection around the bearded area of men. Generally, the infection occurs as a follicular inflammation, or as a cutaneous granulomatous lesion, i.e. a chronic inflammatory reaction.. Treatment of tinea barbae is with an antifungal drug, such as griseofulvin, terbinafine, or itraconazole ( 200 Mg.1tab OD.x2 weeks)taken by mouth. If the area is severely inflamed, doctors may add a corticosteroid such as prednisone taken by mouth to lessen symptoms and perhaps reduce the chance of scarring.
