I have never heard of getting mold under your skin. It could be a fungus which there are several forms of that affect the skin. Your first option should be to go see your Doctor as soon as possible as anything resembling mold should be checked out.

I think you may be talking about yeast. Yes you can. This is a common occurence in morbidly obese people with poor hygiene. Also some skin diseases or disorders can cause a yeast problem. A doctor would be able to diagnose exactly what is causing your yeast and can help.

I do not think that you can get mold under your skin. You can get infections and there are medicines for that. Sometimes bruses can cause the green molded color if the bruse is not that bad up under your skin. If you are really concerned please contact your family doctor.
