In brief: Tinea Versicolor

Most people use anti-fungal creams, lotions or shampoos to treat their tinea versicolor symptoms.
Some of these include selenium sulfide (selsun), ciclopirox (loprox) and ketoconazole (nizoral). The selsun lotion (2.5 percent ) works well as a tinea versicolor remedy. Loprox comes in a cream, gel or lotion. And Nizoral is available as a shampoo and cream.
