I have had Tinea Versicolor(white/pink spots) for about 4 years on/off on my back/chest/stomach/upper arms/shoulders. Every summer, I would treat it with Selenium Sulfide 2.5% Topical Cream for a week and after being out in the sun, my skin would quickly go back to an even color.
This past summer I didn't go through the treatment because I didn't get any spots, however this fall I started to see the spots again, including spots on my forearms as well. I used the cream for 2 weeks and have been waiting for my skin to clear up.
Since I am not out in the sun in the winter, do I have to wait longer for the spots to disappear? --or could I also have developed vitiligo on my forearms?
