- Beard ringworm
- A superficial fungal infection of the skin, affecting the bearded area of the face and neck, with swellings and marked crusting, often with itching, sometimes causing the hair to break off. In the days when men went to the barber daily for a shave, this affliction was called barber's itch. Also known as tinea barbae.
