Once you notice that you may have this fungal infection, schedule an appointment with your dermatologist. Your doctor will prescribe medication that aligns with your skin type. It also depends on where the tinea versicolor appears on your body, how much skin has been infected, how thick the spots have grown, and the climate. From creams, to cleansers to anti-fungal pills will all depend on the severity of the fungal infection.
