Erosio interdigitalis blastomycetica
There is no sex or age predilection for EIB. A Japanese study showed that EIB was the second most common form of cutaneous candidiasis encountered in an outpatient setting, after intertrigo.
Chronic maceration and irritation result in skin breakdown and are major risk factors for colonization and growth of Candida species. Therefore, homemakers, launderers, and dishwashers are particularly susceptible to developing EIB. Other predisposing factors include obesity, diabetes mellitus, and immunosuppression. EIB may sometimes be complicated by infection with gram-negative bacilli.
