A Quick Way To Get Rid Of Tinea Versicolor On The Face?
I want to ask. It was about two weeks ago that my cheeks were like contact with phlegm. First it was itchy and there were wounds like they had been bitten by a mosquito. I bought a diapotik medicine for a long time, after that the itching disappeared only at the cheek but there were white marks like phlegm. What is tinea versicolor? And how fast to cure it, thank you
White patches on the face or cheeks is not necessarily because of phlegm. Tinea versicolor is a skin disease due to a Malassez fungal infection that develops more than normal. Tinea versicolor causes complaints of lighter or darker spots on the skin which can be scaly and itchy. Treatment of tinea versicolor is by antifungal.
White spots on the face, in addition to phlegm can also be caused by several other conditions such as:
Post-inflammatory hypopigmentation, such as scars that cause damage to melanocyte cells
Are white patches still itchy at present and are they getting wider? To ascertain the cause of white spots, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be done if necessary with a wood light test and skin scraping test. After the cause is confirmed, the doctor can give you more appropriate treatment. Handling will be adjusted to the results of your inspection.
Meanwhile you should not scratch white spots, use skincare that is more hypoallergenic, try not to get sweaty, avoid sun exposure, and don't scratch your skin if it feels itchy.
Hope it helps you,
