Tinea faciei is a fungal infection of the face.[1]:301[2]

It generally appears as a red rash on the face, followed by patches of small, raised bumps. The skin may peel while it is being treated.[citation needed]

Tinea faciei is contagious just by touch and can spread easily to all regions of skin.[citation needed]
