Tinea Versicolor Treatment

Tinea Versicolor, also called Pityriasis Versicolor, is a common condition that is caused by an overgrowth of a naturally occurring yeast on the skin. It is characterized by lighter or darker patches on the skin. Patches are most often found on the chest or back and prevent the skin from tanning evenly. It occurs mostly in adolescence and early adulthood due to oily skin, but can occur at any time.
