Treat Tinea Versicolor On The Face And Neck?
I have phlegm on my neck and face, I have taken griseofulvin, how do you take griseofulvin properly?
Panu is a skin disease caused by a fungal infection. Panu will cause white or brown patches on the skin that feel itchy, scaly, and get more itchy if it is damp / sweaty.
Examination to confirm tinea versicolor is by interview, physical examination, and supporting by skin scraping test. Treatment of tinea versicolor can be with topical or oral medications that contain antifungals.
In general, tinea versicolor drugs that can be used freely without a doctor's prescription are ointments / creams sold at pharmacies. Meanwhile, for oral medication/drinking drugs, the doctor will give the doctor if the tinea versicolor is widespread or does not respond to topical treatment with ointments/creams.
Griseofulvin is an antifungal drug that is taken orally / taken by mouth. You should only use griseovulfin on the advice of a doctor. The dose of griseovulfin varies according to the severity of tinea versicolor, initial response to the drug, and the patient's medical condition. Therefore, it is necessary to directly examine the patient before giving griseofulvin or other oral antifungals. Some of the side effects of griseovulfin include headache, diarrhea, nausea, cough, fever, muscle aches, and joint pain.
If you get a prescription for griseofulvin from a doctor, you can ask the doctor again regarding the dosage and how to use it. You can also ask the pharmacist who reads your doctor's prescription for the dose. However, if you buy it yourself without a doctor's advice, I suggest you consult directly with your doctor first.
