What is Tinea Versicolor?
Tinea Versicolor causes many small, flat spots on the skin and is a result of a fungal infection. The spots can be flaky or mildly itchy, can sometimes blend into large patchy areas, and can be either lighter or darker than the skin around them.
What causes Tinea Versicolor?
Tinea Versicolor is a fungus that lives everywhere around us and, therefore, also lives on your skin. It is not contagious or transferred from person to person.
Regular washing and showering remove dead skin and fungi from your skin, however, in hot and humid weather fungi tend to grow more rapidly. As these fungi grow the natural balance on the skin is affected and the result is the normal color of the skin changes, and spots appear. People with oily skin, especially teens and young adults, are more likely to get tinea versicolor.
Having a compromised immune system can increase your chance of getting Tinea Versicolor. Typically, you see this during pregnancy or from some illnesses like diabetes & the AIDS Virus.
How is it treated?
Treatment can prevent the rash from spreading and improve the appearance of your skin. Using certain medicines, such as corticosteroids, antibiotics, or birth control pills can help to treat this condition.
