Panu is caused by a fungal infection Malassezia. Panu causes complaints of white, reddish, or brownish patches on the skin with itching and getting itchy if the condition is damp or sweaty and scaly.
To treat tinea versicolor, you can use creams or ointments containing antifungals that are sold in pharmacies, for example, containing miconazole, ketoconazole, and clotrimazole. This topical antifungal medication is used for several weeks on a regular basis. You can follow the instructions for use on the ointment / cream package, or you can ask the pharmacist on duty for the dosage.
If after 4 weeks there is no improvement with over-the-counter topical medications, I suggest that you consult a doctor directly, OK? The doctor will conduct an in-person examination if necessary with a skin scraping test to confirm the condition of your skin. The doctor will then provide the maximum treatment for you.
Related to griseofulvin, it is an oral antifungal drug (orally used). Oral antifungal drugs are generally only given by a doctor if the complaints do not improve with topical medication, the lesions / areas infected with fungi are very extensive / severe, the lesions are on the nails, head, or if the patient has certain medical conditions. These drugs have some side effects such as headache, diarrhea, nausea, cough, fever, muscle aches, and joint pain. Therefore, griseofulvin should be consumed as directed by a doctor and under the supervision of a doctor.
