I have tinea versicolor, i have gotten rid of it before, (at least i thought i did), using an over the counter shampoo called Nizoral. Is this an effective treatment? I would sometimes use it as a lotion, mostly about 30 minutes to an hour before i showered, then i would rinse it off and then I would apply more in the shower and use as a body wash, on and around the affected areas. However, it has come back. Should i try using the Nizoral as a daily body wash to keep it away? Is it even possible to permanently get rid of it?
