White Spots on the side of face

Hey everyone,

I recently noticed these white spots on the side of my face,which look like a skin discolouration ..they're not distinctly "white" but you can notice then from up close ..they don't itch or anything,but seem to be spreading a little more . I was wondering if anyone else experienced such a thing?im thinking it may be Tinea versicolor??..does anyone know of any cures to get rid of this problem?

I googled and I heard people mention Lamasil foot cream and I also heard of selsun blue extra strength,I recently purchased a cream by the name of Cenesta ..and I have selsun blue but not the extra strength one,could any of these possibly do the trick?Thanx in advance!

Re: White Spots on the side of face

Here is more info, I too think it may be T Versacolor:

Link-O-Matic

Besides seeing a specialist, all I can say is try the remedies. If you see a change your on the right path. 2 weeks of Selsum Blue seems to work well. Let it on the skin for several minutes and use it on your entire body.

Re: White Spots on the side of face

Nope..never heard of that product "Nizorel"...but i also noticed some of the threads mentioning "Denerox" ..I live in Toronto,Canada ..so a lot of these products aren't as easily offerd as they would be in the states.But Im aware of selsun blue ..which i have but not the extra strength one..any other suggestions?

Re: White Spots on the side of face

[b]Nizoral is the correct spelling and I have heard that it is the #1 remedy out there. You can conveniently purchase it a local dug mart store such as shoppers drug mart. It is used all over the body for 10 to 15 mins a day and then washed off, make sure that before using you shower so that the skin that you are applying to is clean. Use it once a day for 2 weeks then once a week after that. I am not a dermatologist so it's best to consult your family physician before proceeding with the above information given.

Re: White Spots on the side of face

About Nizoral for those of you who have used it..I tried selsun blue a couple times and what I've found is it really dried out my skin...Does Nizoral do this too?
