From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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.

Medication prescribed for this condition typically contains cephalexin pills.

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