I know there's alot of people asking about Tinea Versicolor but I wanted to ask something. I noticed I had alot of white splotches on my chest and I was told it was Siriousis(<<not sure how thats spelled). So I looked online and found this site. But also I was told to use Selson Blue as a lotion. Assuming since lotions are put on but not washed off I just applied it twice a day without washing it off. It appeared to have gotten a little better after one day. Now a few days later it has gotten extremely dry and formed into what I think is a rash. It also burns very badly for no reason and if I put any form of lotion, purfume, etc. it burns worse. I wanted to know if it being so dry and hurting is normal or a bad thing. But now reading the posts from others I realize I'm supposed to put it on in the shower and wash it off. I'm just curious if when I start that will it be worse to clear up or is it ok. Also should I use anything else or will just Selson Blue alone work. Thanks much, Kandy

Yes, you are having a reaction to the selsun blue because you aren't washing it off. Go shower and get it off! Usually the selsun blue helps take care of the tinea versicolor, it make take a few weeks, or longer...you can go to your doctor and get a creme as well if you find the selsun blue isn't working.

because of your rash....wait until its better before you use the selsun blue again...you'll just keep iritating it.

Tenia Vera-I had this before and have it right now. I usually get this during the summer months when i sweat more, as Tenia will grow when your skin in moist.
The best possible way to get rid of this is to use, athlets foor creame, or an antifungal SPRAY- This you will be able to leave on your skin as, it meant to touch and stay on you skin. I have used many others types or products, this works best!

What is Tenia Vera is there a difference between that and Tinea Versicolor? What kind of antifungal spray and where could I find something like that? And yes, I am using the Selsun Blue the right way now, putting it on in the shower and washing it off. But I am also using it on my hair because I read on here to do that as well. It doesn't seem to hurt any more but it also doesn't look to be better. O well, I suppose I have to wait and see. But I'm also curious do I put it in my hair even though I don't have dandruff?

Do you know for sure what the spots are? Have you had them checked by a dermatologist or regular doctor?

If the are tinea versicolor, there are lots of over-the-counter ways to treat it. But, if what you're dealing with is psoriasis, you the treatments for tinea versicolor may aggravate the condition.

See a doctor for a diagnosis. Just be aware that the doctor will most likely advise you to stop tanning even if it is something as simple as tinea versicolor (just because about 95% of physicians are against tanning in general). But, once we know what your spots are, it will be easier to help you.

No I never went to the doctor for it. But I asked a friend that works at a tanning salon and she thought it was psoriasis. But she suggested Selsun Blue, but if that will aggravate it I'll stop. I do not know for sure what it is then, I just assumed that Selsun Blue would work for both. At first I kept tanning more because I didn't know what it was so I assumed it would tan it and eventually blend. Since I've found out I haven't went at all. But thank you and everybody else for all the help you've gave me so far.

The most common cause of white spots is tinea versicolor, but there are other causes too. Psoriasis is another. But the spots can also be caused by areas in the skin that have lost their ability to tan completely. Definitely see a doctor for a diagnosis
