Definition of Tineas:

A dermatomycosis; any number of skin fungus infections, such as ringworm, athlete's foot (Tinea pedis), and so forth.  It is generally slow to acquire and hard to get rid of.  Tinea Versicolor is a chronic skin fungus, often without symptoms... except the light skin splotches of infected surfaces that don't tan.  It seems easily transmitted from one part of the body to another or one person to another.  It is also called Pityriasis Versicolor.
