Is loprox (ciclopirox) cream ok to use on my mild to oily skin on face to treat tinea versicolor or is the gel version better?

Not much difference. The 3 topical formulations (gel, cream, lotion) available offer little difference for skin type...They just feel a bit different during application because of different consistency, but otherwise they all dry out relatively quickly and thus probably won't make much of a difference for you. So whatever you have/got, give it a try. U probably have more than just on face? Consult doc. Good luck.
