Heat and humidity can help spread the infection.Tinea corporis or ringworm is a skin infection caused by a fungus that lives on dead tissues, such as the skin, hair, and nails. Ringworm is a fungus that causes both jock itch and athlete’s foot. Kids and teens get more warts than adults because their immune systems haven’t built up defenses against the many types of HPV. People with weakened immune systems — like those with HIV or who are taking biological drugs for conditions like RA, psoriasis, and IBD — are also more susceptible to getting warts because their bodies may not be able to fight them off.
