Suggest me medication for tinea versicolor as its spreading.
Dear Doctor, I got tinea versicolor for last two months. Already had two dosage of fulcanazole with 30 days gap. Clorimazole ointment is applied on the affected area. i feel it is spreading. please suggest alternate drugs or soap for this T.Versicolor.
Tinea versicolor is a superficial fungal skin disease caused by yeast. It may take a few months to recover. Apply ketoconazole cream. Take ketoconazole tablet daily for ew months. Ketoconazole containing shampoo may be done to cleanse the scalp, as the yeast resides on the scalp. Ketoconazole soap may be used.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
