Have you observed that certain areas of your skin fail to tan in summer and look like discolored hypo or hyper-pigmented patches, in that case, you probably are afflicted by a fungal infection named Tinea Versicolor or Pityriasis Versicolor? This disease is mainly due to the reasons for not getting proper sunlight or sunbath in the body hidden parts, staying in humid or dirtied places bD HYGIENES, eating sweet foods more and body blood becomes contaminated. Tinea Versicolor is a skin condition initiated by an overgrowth of Malassezia furfur, also known as Pityrosporum orbiculare, a yeast that makes its home on the skin’s surface. This yeast transforms to a pathogenic form, roves under the skin, producing Azelaic acid, which turns off melanin-producing cells in the skin. The yeast colonizes in the pores of the skin and thrives in oily areas such as the face, neck, shoulders, chest, back and folds of skin such as arms, skin under the breasts or groins. This overgrowth outcome is a fungal infection that causes patchy skin color, scaling and itching. The affected skin changes color and becomes either lighter or darker than the surrounding skin. Tinea, often called ringworm, is any of a variety of skin mycoses.Tinea is a very common fungal infection of the skin. Tinea is often called "ringworm" because the rash is circular, with a ring-like appearance. It is sometimes equated with dermatophytosis, and, while most conditions identified as "tinea" are members of the imperfect fungi that make up the dermatophytes, conditions such as tinea nigra and tinea versicolor are not caused by dermatophytes.
