They live within our bodies as facultative parasites e.g. in athlete's foot (= Tinea pedis: Greek ped = feet as in centipede [= 100 feet]) the hyphae grow between your toes, OR in thrush, the Candida albicans fungus grows on the vulva of women OR Aspergillus grows in the human lung.

They cause symptoms by using up our material for nutrition, by release of toxins e.g. those that cause itching in athlete's foot AND in thrush, AND/OR by simply replacing our tissues with their own hyphae (filamentous thread-like fungal structures, usually one cell thick).
