Hello Shofie, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
Tinea versicolor or also called Pityriasis versicolor is a skin disease caused by a fungus infection Malassezia furfur. This fungus is a normal flora that grows on the skin and in most people this fungus does not cause any problems on the skin. However, if this fungus grows excessively, then tinea versicolor can occur. The following are some of the factors that can cause excessive growth of this fungus:
hot and humid weather oily skin hormonal changes (eg puberty, pregnancy) weakening the immune system for example due to the influence of immunosuppressant drugs, HIV, diabetes, nutritional disorders, etc. The following are some things you can do to prevent the recurrence of fungal infections this:
Maintain cleanliness of the body by bathing regularly every day (especially if you sweat a lot) Use clothing that absorbs sweat and change clothes every time wet Do the treatment until completely completely, follow the treatment instructions from your doctor Even though it has been completely treated, this yeast infection it can be repeated (even in healthy people), especially when the weather is hot and humid. In cases like this, you should take medication directly to the doctor so that drugs can be given to prevent the recurrence of fungal infections.
Prevention of re-infection can be done by giving topical drugs (shampoo for the body) or oral drugs (first-line oral drugs that are used for prevention are also not ketoconazole). The use of topical drugs is recommended and has a high enough effectiveness in preventing the recurrence of the disease. We recommend that you do not use ketoconazole carelessly. These drugs include hard drugs that you should not use without going through an examination from a doctor first and you should not buy without a prescription from a doctor. Using this drug carelessly can cause dangerous health problems.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
