Homeopathic Treatment for Tinea Versicolor

What are Tinea Versicolor and the Causes for it?

Tinea versicolor is a common fungal infection of the skin. Tinea versicolor is also known as pityriasis versicolor. The cause behind tinea versicolor is a fungus named malassezia globosa. This fungus is usually found on the healthy skin and causes no harm in normal conditions. It only begins to give trouble when there is an overgrowth of this fungus on the skin. Various factors that trigger excessive growth of this fungus include greasy skin, warm and humid environment, and excessive sweating. A weak immune system also gives the fungus a chance to grow easily. Tinea versicolor is not contagious and does not spread by skin contact with the person suffering from it. Tinea versicolor more commonly affects teens and young adults. Homeopathy offers a very safe and efficient treatment for tinea versicolor. Homeopathic treatment for tinea versicolor is given only after a complete case taking in every individual.

What are the Symptoms of Tinea Versicolor?

The symptoms of tinea versicolor include discolored patches on the skin that may be darker or lighter compared to the surrounding skin. The color of the spots may vary from pale, white, pink, red and brown. In persons with light skin tone, the spots are of a dark color, while in individuals with dark skin tone, light colored skin spots are prominent. These spots can appear on any body part, but the most common sites are chest, neck, back, and arms. Fine scales and mild itching may be present in these spots. The spots get worse in hot, humid weather and get better in cold weather. Tinea versicolor is likely to reoccur every year during the summer. Exposure to the sun and overheating tend to increase the darkening of spots.

Homeopathic Medicines for Tinea Versicolor

Top grade homeopathic medicines for tinea versicolor include Arsenic Album, Sepia, Thuja Occidentalis, Sulphur, Tellurium, and Kali Sulph. These homeopathic medicines boost the infection fighting mechanism of the body and help to fight fungal infection. The advantage of using homeopathic treatment for tinea versicolor is that they are natural and don’t cause any side effects. Also, homeopathic medicines don’t suppress the skin complaint and help in a safe and natural recovery.

  11. Good morning, Dr. Sharma,

    I have had T.V. for 10+ years now. It started on my shoulders and has recently spread down all along my back :(. It is mostly white and occasionally it will be red/itchy. I have tried limiting sugar in my diet and am gluten free. I take doterra vitality vitamins, tumeric, milk thistle and s722 daily. I have also been applying coconut oil with tea tree oil onto my skin twice daily. Do you have any supplements that you think I could take that would help clear up my T.V.?

    Thank you!

    I’m trying to figure out if my son has white spots all over him from swimming or a fungus. It might might vitiligo. The reason I think it might be vitiligo is he is staring to get some white eyelashes near a spot that went lighter by his eye. Can I send you pictures to help me determine which one is causing the lack of melatonin on my six year old autism son please?
