Hi since last summer, I've had these light and dark patches on my torso and chest. They are hardly noticeable on my chest but very evident on my stomach and I hate them so much. It started as a dark birthmark looking patch just under my right nipple but since then has spread over my torso. After a lot of research I have come to the conclusion that this is Tinea Versicolor and have been applying selenium sulfide 2.5% overnight for a week. It's really dried out my skin so I'm going to stop with the treatment as I've read that it usually takes a week. However, I have a gut feeling that this isn't TV and that it is something else. A typical Tinea Versicolor rash does not look like what I have. I am going to schedule an appointment with my GP but I'm so worried I will never be able to cure this. Anyone have any ideas on what this hideous thing could be?
