I have tinea versicolor...apparently from what I have read...I am one of the rare few who has it on my face. :( It wasn't much concern of mine in the begining...But 5 years later and 1/3 of my face covered with hyperpigmented huge dark blotches ...Well, you know.
One week and months of research of my own...( no insurance, no doctor) I found a regime that actually is showing results within a week.
first I wash with an antibacterial soap...followed by a dandruff shampoo 'mask' for about 10 minutes...I remove that with a gentle exfoliating scrubber. Hydrogen peroxide astringent...because I read that these over the counter meds create a toxic level of it inside the fungal cells which then kills it...so, I thought this step would help that process along...also, it has a bleaching affect. I began with Clotrimazole application but it seemed to over dry my skin...So now...and don't laugh...I use Miconazole ( Monastat...lol...yes, ON MY FACE) It's designed for 'sensitive skin' and isn't as harsh as the other...M
My most exciting find...is this product called Vita-K solution...for blotchy skin...It claims results with the first application...and the claim is true... So get yourself some of this...its fantastic.
I am only a week into my regime...and am already noticing improvement. :)
However, the process of it leaving...is as frustrating as how it came...it has a will of its own.
I'll share what happens after 2 weeks...because I read..that is the length of the standard treatment.
I hope something here helps someone...
