What is Tinea Versicolor ?
Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that interferes with normal pigment production in the skin. It typically results in small, discoloured patches of skin which can be lighter or darker than surrounding areas and are most often found on the trunk and shoulders.
Tinea versicolor usually occurs during puberty but may occasionally occur earlier if there’s an overgrowth of yeast due to an immune system deficiency like AIDS or chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. Sun exposure will only make tinea versicolor more apparent; it doesn’t cause pain nor does it spread to other people via touching someone else who has tinea Versicolor themselves.
Who Gets Tinea Versicolor?
Tinea versicolor is most common in young adults, especially men. It affects children and older people as well. This fungal infection can appear on the chest or back but also manifests itself as a lighter-coloured patch of skin anywhere else it chooses to show up!
Tinea versicolor often appears during hot humid weather because bacteria present in our bodies grow better when there are fewer extremes between humidity levels and temperature fluctuations, which we typically see with more seasons (dry winter months). The fungus usually clears around this time too due to colder temperatures that dry out damp areas like sweaty armpits or underarms where fungi thrive best for some reason…it’s crazy how so many things work together in nature right?
What are the Causes of Tinea Versicolor?
Although the yeast that causes tinea versicolor, Malassezia, grows on healthy skin most of the time – it is triggered by oily skin in a hot climate. Hormonal changes and sweating can also cause an overgrowth to occur; which could make you feel self-conscious about yourself.
Though this condition doesn’t spread through contact with other individuals who have Tinea Versicolor (TV), people are more prone to developing TV if they already have weakened immune systems due to illness or medication intake for another ailment such as diabetes
What are the symptoms of Tinea Versicolor?
Discoloured patches of skin are the most noticeable symptom of tinea versicolor, and these patches usually show up on your arms, chest, neck or back. These patches may be lighter (more common) or darker than the surrounding skin; pink/red to brown in color with dryness that can make them itchy and scaly especially when exposed to tanning rays which makes them more prominent.
Those who have dark coloured pigments will experience hypopigmentation where their skins lightens while those with paler features might develop hyperpigmentation whereby coloring becomes darker instead for some people as a result from this condition
What Are Similar Diseases to Tinea Versicolor?
Some conditions with overlapping symptoms, such as vitiligo , are often mistaken for tinea versicolor. However, vitiligo can differ from tinea versicolor in several noticeable ways, including:
Vitiligo doesn’t affect your skin’s texture.
Vitiligo usually appears on the fingers, wrists, armpits, mouth, eyes, or groin.
Vitiligo often forms patches that are symmetrical.
The rash caused by pityriasis rosea is also similar to tinea versicolor, but this rash is usually preceded by a “herald patch,” a lone red patch of scaly skin that appears a few days or weeks before the rash. This rash typically appears in the shape of a Christmas tree on the back. It’s not known what causes this condition. But, like tinea versicolor, it’s neither harmful nor contagious.
What are the Risk Factors for Tinea Versicolor?
Thanks to various environmental and biological factors, you’re more likely than the average person to have tinea versicolor. Among these are if your family has a history of this condition or you sweat excessively in humid conditions with low air circulation for prolonged periods of time, but there is still hope!
If not diagnosed at its earliest stages, it can cause significant embarrassment due to skin discolouration that manifests as one’s natural pigment changes from pinkish-brown back over an even brown colouration (though some people may see light patches). Here’s how: underneath our outer epidermis lies a thin layer called the dermal tissue which contains melanocytes, cells responsible for producing pigmentation – think freckles on sunburnt shoulders after hours
How to Prevent Tinea Versicolor?
The key to preventing Tinea Versicolor is treating it as soon as you notice the first symptoms. Be sure to take a shower every day and apply lotion with zinc oxide on your arms, face, and neck.
If you take a shower everyday, the fungus will have less chance of growing on your skin. Also, wear clothes that cover most parts of your body and use sunscreen if you go outside in hot weather.
Treatment of Tinea Versicolor?
Tinea Versicolor is a common condition that causes discoloration of the skin. Treatment can help prevent the rash from spreading and improve your skin’s appearance, but not everyone chooses to get treatment because it isn’t always needed or desired. Some treatments include antifungal shampoos, creams, and foams which may be used on areas other than just where you have an infection (such as for those who don’t want to go through with any type of topical treatment).
Depending on how strong the medicine is, you may or may not need a prescription for these products. For example, shampoos used to treat tinea versicolor usually contain selenium sulfide. They are available in 2.5% strength with a prescription and in 1% strength without a prescription (for example, Selsun Blue, Head and Shoulders).
You may need to use the product once or twice each day for 1 to 2 weeks or longer.
If the infection is severe, returns often, or does not get better with skincare, your doctor may prescribe antifungal pills. Pills tend to be easier for people to use than the products that you put on your skin. They may also work better at curing the rash. But they have side effects and can affect your heart and liver, so you may need blood tests while you’re taking them. People with liver problems, heart problems, or other health problems may not be able to take the pills.
Treatment kills the fungi quickly. But it can take months for your skin colour to return to normal and for all of those pesky spots to disappear. And don’t worry, this infection reoccurs in most people over time! It’s just part of growing old with a chronic condition like acne, but fortunately, treatment is available that will speed up the process so you’re back on track sooner than later.
