Tinea Cruris, one of the most common fungus's aside from shower mold me thinks,
The fungus that causes Athletes foot, Jock Itch, and Ringworm, All the same thing more or less, just on different parts of the body.
It is easily transferable through any place where bare feet come in contact with the surface, and so on..
Not the most deadly fungus, but definatly annoying as all hell.. Speaking of which,
Anyone know how to get rid of it quickly without using that crap at the pharmacy that takes two months?

I had a fungus problem that cleared up by putting garlic juice on it. I couldn't believe how quickly it went away.
Strange but True: The Largest Organism on Earth Is a Fungus
Next time you purchase white button mushrooms at the grocery store, just remember, they may be cute and bite-size but they have a relative out west that occupies some 2,384 acres (965 hectares) of soil in Oregon's Blue Mountains. Put another way, this humongous fungus would encompass 1,665 football fields, or nearly four square miles (10 square kilometers) of turf.
The discovery of this giant Armillaria ostoyae in 1998 heralded a new record holder for the title of the world's largest known organism, believed by most to be the 110-foot- (33.5-meter-) long, 200-ton blue whale. Based on its current growth rate, the fungus is estimated to be 2,400 years old but could be as ancient as 8,650 years, which would earn it a place among the oldest living organisms as well.

Just curious on what the thoughts of some fellow ATSers might be on this. Could we be looking at a potential apocalypse brought on by fungi?
