Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

but being on the surface ANYTHING can turn white just from drying out.

Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

Reading your post it sound as if you have a good idea of what it is. You have more knowledge then some salon owners. Don’t underestimate your own intelligence, and confirm it with your doctor.

Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

caribbeansun01 - After I did put lotion on my calves, the itching did go away. It was just the heat from my space heater that caused the itching. But I appreciate your advice to use Cortaid Spray if it did continue to itch. Thanks.

engfant - Hello. Since Tinea doesn't show up on legs and face I'm beginning to think that I do have a mild case of Vertigo. Besides, I completely forget to mention way earlier, I have these perfectly round porcelain white spots (big dots) on my scalp. I'm really beginnning to worry!!! Thanks for your post.

clubtan1 - I do plan on going back to my Dr. very soon (for other reason besides this). He's not a skin doctor though, but an Internal Physician. Wouldn't someone working at a tanning salon know more. Or I could switch to a family doctor. Which would you advise? I wonder if I put lotion on my skin every day to prevent it from drying out that would decrease the amount of these white spots from appearing. (Your 2nd post really made me think about that). Thanks for posting.

malibutansnc - Hi. I'm starting to second guess myself about the tinea versicolor. I have been very carefull about my skin since I've become concerned about these spots. Only going to tanning salon maybe once every three months and wearing SPF 30 if in the sun longer than 30 or 45 minutes. Before that, I never seemed to care except I always did try to prevent getting burned. Hopefully I'll find out from a Dr. soon what my condition really is. On the internet, it says age spots are brown patches usually on the face, chest and arms; a few other areas too. Then again, my Dr. is an Internal Physician, skin is not his specialty. Thanks for your reply.

Kay - Thank you so much for the acknowledgement. I have been studying alot about my condition. Unfortunately, I'm at a standstill because of my face and scalp mainly. They're not qualified as areas for Tinea Versicolor. Legs aren't very common either. Looking at the back of my calf now, it looks like 100 or more white tinea spots scattered just in that area. Here's what I'll do: Mon. I will make an apt. with my Dr. or a family Dr. and if he can't seem to diagnose me I'll ask him to refer me to a skin specialist out of town. Thanks for your reply and also for the confidence you gave me through the compliments.
I greatly appreciated that.

Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

Vertigo is dizzyness/lightheaded.........Might you mean or have Impetigo???? You will notice immediate results when DERMISIL® I if applied to your Impetigo condition. If in fact that is what it is...Sounds kinda like what u are describing to me...I AM NOT A DOCTOR....but have seen many skin disorders...

Also I understand that since Tinea Versicolor is a scalp disease it could certainly fall onto your face and other areas such as you described... We have been told to recommend Selsum Blue for the hair and Halt (by Norvell) for the areas of the tinea...

I would check with another doctor as it sounds to me like this one needs to do a scraping and put it under a scope to find out just what u do have...

Another option could be ring worm since you describe itching as well...

Hope your on the road to recovery as we speak...

Happy Holidays, Soo

Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

I would think you meant vitigilo(sp) those usually are not perfectly round. Have you been severly burned on you legs by the sun before? What happens sometimes is you have destroyed you melain in those areas. Common on your front of the legs between your knees and top of foot. Skin can be quite thin there. There are two different types of sun spots dark and light. Dark ones usually can be treated and corrected, as long as you stay out of the sun (lactic peels are great for this) White ones good luck very rare you can do anything about them. Try spray tanning this should help cover them up or use a lotion with alot of bronzer (dha) in it this should help cover them up also. If they are sun spots, they become very apparent when you tan because the skin tans around the spots (white freckles) so it make them stand out more.

Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

SooSamm - Hi. Sorry it took me so long to repond. I didn't mean to type Vertigo. I meant to say Vetiligo instead just like Tanology had spelled it. No, I don't have Impetigo either. My white spots are completely smooth. No rash. They never flake. They're exactly like my freckles, just white instead of brown. Those spots don't ever itch either. The itching from before was due to dry skin caused from the space heater. I don't keep it by my legs any more. And the white spots on my head or porcelain white. They don't flake. I don't have dandruff. I still haven't seen my doctor yet though as I've been soo busy lately. Buy when I do see him and he sends me to a skin doctor, I will remember to ask that skin doctor to check my scalp along with the rest of me for Tinea Versicolor. Thanks for advice and opinions and Happy Holidays to you also.

Tanology - Hello. Thanks for the correction. Yes, I did mean Vetiligo. I've been burned several times on my legs in my younger years. I didn't know sunspots were dark and light. Interesting facts you said about them too. I've been studying on the prescription creams and oral medications (potent though) forr Tinea and Vetiligo in the past few days. However I do, of course, want a skin doctor to make a diagnosis of my skin condition first. I thought about spray tanning . Expensive though. I am very fair-skinned too. I do have fake tanning lotion. It's been since August since I've tanned so I'm afraid if I use it now, I might like orange. Thanks for your helpful advice and reply. Have a nice Holiday season.

Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

I was wondering if you ever used lotion with tingle on your body or face? I am fair skinned also and used to tan quite frequently when I was a salon manager before I became a disty. Anyway I switched to using tingle lotion on my legs and found I started developing small white freckles. I started asking some of my customers that were tingle users if they had the same issue as me and quite a few of them did. I do not know why tingle lotion causes this in some people but I thought I might see if you were using tingle on your body and face.

Re: Do you think I have Tinea Versicolor?

Nikita,

We use Norvell for our spray tans ...none have ever turned orange...not one...and there is also sluffwipe Morrocin Mineral that is a great self tanner also..I am sure your salon would be happy to order that for you...you can apply that at home...it's like mud and u just apply it with a glove as even as u can get it..but it to has NO orange...Just a few suggestions for ya... sluffwipe.com

Happy Holidays, Soo
