Beard scab: symptoms, cause and treatment tinea barbae

  1. Tinea barbae or beard scab is a fungal infection in the beard area. Tinea barbae is also known by the names 'mycotic sycosis barbae' and 'dermatomycosis barbae'. In fact, the name 'beard scabies' is incorrect as the inflammation is not caused by the scabies mite. Beard scab is caused by both zoophilic and anthropophilic dermatophytes or fungi. Zophilic dermatophytes are primarily pathogens (pathogens) of certain animal species and anthropophilic dermatophytes are natural pathogens of humans. In beard scabies, the hair follicles or the tissue around the hair follicles in the beard area are affected. Treatment of beard scab or tinea barbae usually takes place with an oral antifungal agent such as itraconazole for the period of 4 to 6 weeks. The prognosis is good; scarring is rarely seen.

Risk factors

  1. People of all ethnic backgrounds can develop tinea barbae. However, it is seen almost exclusively in older teens and adult men. Tinea barbae is more common in warmer, more humid climates. It is mainly farmers and livestock keepers who get this fungal infection. People with a weakened immune system, such as patients with HIV, severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) or bone marrow disease, are more likely to be infected. Use of immunosuppressants (drugs that suppress the immune system) also increases the risk of getting the infection. Hirsutism
