Tinea Versicolor
Tinea versicolor is a fungal infection of the skin that is characterized by the development of white, tan, or slightly inflamed patches on the trunk.  This is caused by an overgrowth of yeast and is common during the summer months in patients who exercise and sweat frequently. While treatment with topical or oral antifungal agents is effective, lesions often recur. Using antifungal shampoos as a body wash twice weekly in the shower can prevent relapse.
