TINEA (Pityriasis) VERSICOLOR

TREATMENT

  • Apply KETACONAZOL lotion (“Nizoral Shampoo”) to the dry skin at night and wash it out after fifteen minutes.
  • Apply the lotion from your neck down to your upper thighs and down as far as your wrists being careful to cover ALL areas in between, front and back.
  • Apply the lotion for fifteen minutes every night for one week. This will get rid of any itch or scaliness.
  • After this treatment you may be left with a faint rash. This will gradually fade away over a few weeks after finishing the treatment especially after getting some sun.
  • Do NOT continue the treatment indefinitely.
  • The rash may recur during the summer or after a “sun holiday”. If this occurs simply treat yourself again as outlined above. Some people need to treat themselves every spring to prevent getting a “blotchy” tan in the summer.
  • Remember, it is a safe and effective treatment.
  • If you have any problems please contact Dr Buckley.
