It is generally not harmful and it isn't contagious.Topical treatments, such as special creams or shampoos, are usually effective.

MalaCards based summary : Pityriasis Versicolor, also known as tinea versicolor, is related to superficial mycosis and epidermodysplasia verruciformis 1. An important gene associated with Pityriasis Versicolor is CAT (Catalase). The drugs Ketoconazole and Miconazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, colon and t cells, and related phenotypes are Negative genetic interaction between MUS81-/- and MUS81+/+ and Negative genetic interaction between PTTG1-/- and PTTG1+/+

Disease Ontology : 12 A superficial mycosis that is a chronic, superficial fungal infection of the skin caused by Malassezia furfur, which is characterized by well-demarcated white, pink, fawn, or brownish lesions, often coalescing, and covered with thin furfuraceous scales.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Pityriasis Versicolor

PubMedHealth treatment related to Pityriasis Versicolor: 64

Tinea versicolor may improve a little in cool or dry weather, but it usually doesn’t go away on its own. There are a number of effective treatments. These mainly include creams, lotions and shampoos that contain antifungal substances. They are applied to all of the affected areas of skin on the head and body. The shampoo is used too, in order to get rid of the fungus on the scalp and hair. Otherwise it might spread back to the skin again. Depending on the exact product used, it needs to be left on for anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. The products are often put on in the evening and then rinsed off in the shower the next morning.But even when treatment works, it can take up to several weeks or months for the skin patches to disappear. Only in rare cases are tablets needed.Sometimes tinea versicolor comes back again after successful treatment. If this keeps happening, doctors sometimes recommend using a special shampoo (containing an active ingredient like selenium sulfide or ketoconazole) on your skin and hair every two to four weeks. There are also oral medications (tablets) that can be taken every four weeks to prevent tinea versicolor from returning. This can greatly reduce the risk of it coming back.
