Re: Tinea Versicolor treatments?
Non prescription treatment:
Apply antifungal cream (Daktarin, Miconazole) each day for a fortnight. After this, once a week, lather up the area with head and shoulders shampoo, leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse off..Do this regularly every week to keep it away.
If this doesnt work, there is a prescription treatment called FLuconazole.
Take a 100mg fluconazole capsule each day for a week, then take one capsule once each week on a long term basis. This isnt expensive, Costco pharmacies will sell 30 capsules for $15, so a years treatment would be about $30. This is also more convenient than messing around with creams and shampoos, so he is more likely to stick to it long term. A prescription is needed, so it would need to be discussed with your doctor.
