In brief: P. Ovale treatment
Treatment is often effective but short term treatment with fluconazole, ketoconazole or itraconazole is also effective.
The great problem is recurrence and to avoid this a prophylactic treatment is mandatory. Pityrosporum folliculitis is a chronic disease characterized by pruritic follicular papules and pustules located primarily on the upper trunk, neck and upper arms.
