Could skin fungal infection gain resistance?

Skin Fungal Infectio: The short answer is yes, it is possible. However, most skin fungal infections are easily treatable, and actually when they don't seem to respond - it is because they were misdiagnosed. Many types of skin conditions look very similar, and often are ultimately figured out after trying several different medications. Thus, if you are in doubt, go to your dermatologist or pcp for help!
