Understanding Hair Fungus

Hair fungus, also known as fungal scalp infection or tinea capitis, is a condition that affects the scalp and hair follicles. It can lead to symptoms such as itching, redness, scaling, and hair loss.

Causes of Hair Fungus

Hair fungus can develop due to various factors, including:

  1. Fungal Infection: Exposure to fungal organisms, such as dermatophytes, can lead to scalp infections.
  2. Contaminated Objects: Sharing combs, brushes, or hats with an infected person can transmit the fungus.
  3. Warm and Moist Environments: Fungi thrive in warm and moist conditions, which can occur on the scalp.
