As tinea capitis rarely affects infants, early trichoscopic diagnosis facilitates timely institution of appropriate therapy. We report a 10-month-old female presenting with mixed pattern tinea capitis and coexisting tinea faciei wherein trichoscopy showed perifollicular scaling, comma hair, corkscrew hair, and horse-shoe hair. Case 2 was a 3-month-old female with gray patch tinea capitis, corroborated by the presence of perifollicular scaling, comma hair, corkscrew hair, and prominent telangiectasia on trichoscopy. Both cases were successfully treated with tablet fluconazole (5 mg/kg) for 6–8 weeks.
