This chapter shows the collecting of skin scrapings, nail debris and hairs for mycological examination. First, the lesion is cleaned by 70% alcohol to remove the contaminating molds. Scales are scraped from the active margin of the lesion. A fairly large amount of material is required for proper examination. In onychomycosis, thescrapings are taken from under the nail plate.
