In brief: Anti-fungals. Selsum

It can be treated pretty successfully with prescription anti-fungals like ketoconazole or diflucan (fluconazole) - or even Selsum Blue shampoo used as a body wash (google it!).
However whatever conditions lead to the original infection are likely to persist and it often returns. treatments tend to be safe and pretty cheap...especially the Selsum Blue.

In brief: Tinea versicolor

There is no "cure" for tinea versicolor since the fungus that causes it lives on our skin normally.
It can be cleared temporarily with the use of topical anti fungal agents such as Clotrimazole cream or dandruff shamoos such as head and shoulders used every other day as a lotion for 2 weeks.
