What Cream Do I Use To Treat Skin Fungal On My Shoulders

Observation: I presume "TV" refers to Tinea Versicolor which is a fungal infection of the skin. You are using an "anti fungal cream". Peeling skin as the infection heals can occur however it is self-limited and should resolve after treatment. See your doctor if peeling is continuing a month after treatment is done or if there are signs that the infection has not fully responded. ...Read more
