Fungal skin infection is usually caused by the fungus Candida. Eczema (also termed eczematous dermatitis) has many causes, but the most common is atopic dermatitis due to lifelong inherited genetic predisposition to allergens. Eczema triggers include low humidity, skin exposure to solvents, over washing of the skin with soaps and detergents and/or lotions, rough wool clothing, food allergies and repeated wetting and/or drying of the skin among many other triggers; .. Intertrigo is an irritation of the folds of the skin. Candidal infections commonly occur in warm, moist body areas, such as the underarms, in the groin, under the breasts, between the legs, and under the folds of the skin of the abdomen of people who are obese. Any breakdown, cuts, or cracks in the skin may allow this organism to penetrate.

Dermatitis is typically itchy,red and scaly.. skin infection caused by viruses usually result in red Welts or blisters that can be itchy and or painful. Meanwhile, fungal infection usually present with a red,scaly and itchy rash with occasional pustules.
