Tinea Versicolor

Tinea Versicolor

Tinea versicolor is a skin condition caused by an overgrowth of yeast on the skin’s surface. The yeast normally lives in the pores of the skin and can thrive in oily areas such as the neck, upper chest, and back. An overgrowth results in a fungal infection that causes uneven skin color, scaling, and sometimes itching. Treatments include topical cleansers, shampoos, creams or lotions, oral medications, and medicated cleansers.
