If I use Nizoral (ketoconazole) 2% shampoo everyday as a body wash is this good to treat tinea versicolor and prevent it from comming back ?

In brief: Tinea versicolor

Yes....Tinea versicolor can be treated with Nizoral (ketoconazole)shampoo.
This is available over the counter. Rub the shampoo on your body everyday in the shower. You can tell that it is gone if no new spots come. Any discoloration of your skin will fade after a few seasons. See your doctor if it is recurrent.
