.i think pityriasis versicolor is a fungal infection caused by mealsizzia furfur.steriods have no role in the treatment of t.versiclor instead it make the disease recurs.i do not think topical treatment like melacare and flutivate can cause depression.the permanent treatment of tinea versicolor is 200 mg of candiforce for one week along with candid-tv shampoo 15 minutes before bath over the lesions can cure the p.versicolor
