_______________________________________
What are the risks to others?

Tinea versicolor can be spread by sexual contact or through contaminated towels and other objects ! ! !



It is unethical to mislead people by telling them it is not contagous.

read about this at:
http://health.discovery.com/diseasesandcond/encyclopedia/151.html

________________________________________ _
It would not be a good idea share clothes or intimate contact with someone that is infected with any skin disease. This includes contaminated surfaces. This is just common sense.

________________________________________ __
Tinea Versicolor (TIN-e-ah VER-si-color) is a skin condition due to overgrowth of a skin surface yeast (type of fungus).

A KOH scraping of an affected area should reveal abundant short hyphae and spores ("spaghetti and meatballs") on the KOH prep. The usual distribution of tinea versicolor is below the jawline to the waistline, most often involving the upper trunk.


sun fungus or sun spot.

Tinea versicolor is treated with either topical or oral medications. Topical treatment includes special cleansers including some shampoos, creams or lotions applied directly to the skin, once or twice a day. After any form of treatment, the uneven color of the skin may remain several months after the yeast has been eliminated.

Several oral medications have been used successfully to treat tinea versicolor. Because of possible side effects, or interactions with other medications, the use of these prescription medicines should be supervised by your dermatologist.

Tinea versicolor may reappear. To prevent recurrences, special cleansers may need to be used once or twice a month.

Each patient is treated by the dermatologist according to the severity and location of the disease, the climate, and the desire of the patient. It's important to remember that the yeast is easy to kill, but it can take weeks or months for the skin to regain its normal color.


Pathophysiology: Tinea versicolor is caused by the dimorphic, lipophilic organism, Malassezia furfur.

Even though M furfur can be an opportunistic pathogen. The organism is considered to be a factor in other cutaneous diseases including Pityrosporum folliculitis, confluent and reticulate papillomatosis, seborrheic dermatitis and some forms of atopic dermatitis.

Ring Worm.

Ring worm

http://www.astdhpphe.org/infect/ringworm.html


Ringworm is a contagious fungus infection that can affect the scalp, the body, the feet (athlete's foot), or the nails.
People can get ringworm from:

1) direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person or pet,

2) indirect contact with an object or surface that an infected person or pet has touched, or

3) rarely, by contact with soil.

Ringworm can be treated with fungus-killing medicine.
To prevent ringworm,

1) make sure all infected persons and pets get appropriate treatment,

2) avoid contact with infected persons and pets,

3) do not share personal items, and

4) keep common-use areas clean.

We inform all our clients as to what tanning systems are best to use for hygienic reasons, in our flyers and web site and when we show them around our salon. We also provide a copy of our health departments hand out on the benifits of using booth tanning in salon.
