How is tinea versicolor caused? Symptoms? Will it spread 2 another person by contact? My husbnd suspect it. Dctor said fungal, but the patches luklike so
It is fungal. It is usually spread by indirect contact, old towels or by lawn chairs, etc. It is a fungal infection, just a different type. Easily treated but mat take time, very common, don't feel poisened or contagous.
Tinea versicolor is. When the yeast grow out of control, a person can get a skin disease called tinea versicolor. It is not contagious. Can be dry, scaly, itchy spots that are lighter than the surrounding skin. It disappears when the weather is cooler and returns when the weather is hot and humid. It is treated the same way as fungal infections are... With otc selenium sulfide or anti-fungal creams.
