Tinea versicolor cause and treatment??? Just applied an anti fungal cream "clotrigmarole cream usp1%"

TINEA VERSICOLOR. I CALL THIS A FRIENDLY FUNGOUS CONDITION. A KETOCONAZOLE CREAM AND SHAMPOO OFTEN WORKS WELL. IF YOU HAVE IT ON YOUR CHEST AND BACK, FOR EXAMPLE, WASH THOROUGHLY YOUR CHEST AND BACK, AND THEN AFTER YOU RINSE OFF, DRY AND APPLY THE CREAM AT BEDTIME. YOU MUST DO THIS FOR A FEW WEEKS. GOOD LUCK . . .

I have tinea versicolor that comes back yearly. I've tried anti fungal creams, Shampoos & even prescriptions. What can I do to keep it from coming bac?

It will come back. You manage it. Nobody can cure it. My doctor friends who have it take a ketoconazole tablet then hit the gym or running trail, break a sweat and have the skin stuff gone for a month. Read more...

Urgent. Tinea versicolor (on back of neck and 2 on side of neck) cause and treatment??? Just applied an anti fungal cream "clotrigmarole cream usp1%"

Trivial illness. A few percent of folks develop minor skin lesions from this ubiquitous fungus which has several names. If the diagnosis is correct, you'll be free of the lesions on your neck soon; look closely and see whether you don't have them elsewhere. Some folks manage this by taking one ketoconazole tablet monthly before breaking a sweat exercising. Best wishes. Read more...

Hello. Is it safe to mix and apply different topical antifungal treatments (e.G. Azole creams) together? I have suspected tinea versicolor. Thank you.

Safe. But what is the point? No benefit to rubbing on one and then rubbing on another. Most effective treatment is Fluconazole pill, 2 pills a week apart. It will return, typically late summer. Use a dandruff shampoo on body in shower every day to inhibit the organism. Read more...
No benefit. There's not any benefit to mixing them, and you can increase the side effects. Read more...
