Skin fungus white spots treatment
The appearance of white spots on the face can be disturbing and worrying, but it is not very uncommon and can be treated quite easily. Tinea versicolor is the most common cause of this problem, but it could also be caused by Pityriasis alba, a mild condition of eczema.
In cases of white spots on face skin being caused by the unlikely Pityriasis alba a simple routine of moisturizing and skin care would suffice as treatment. Tinea versicolor on the other hand is caused as a result of a yeast infection. This yeast thrives on the skin under normal circumstances but under certain conditions there could be an overgrowth of the yeast and the result is a fungal yeast infection. Since the cause of the condition is yeast that is normally present on human skin the condition is not contagious. It would, however, be best to follow the highest levels of hygiene. Moreover tinea versicolor does have a tendency to recur and as a result some people get recurring white spots on their face.
There are a variety of medicated applications that are available without a prescription and are quite effective against the condition. Most of these solutions contain ketoconazole or clotrimazole. In addition to these medicated treatments you can also avail of a variety of home remedies for white spots on face. Try to keep your face clean by washing it frequently, but make sure you only use a mild and moisturizing face wash. Avoid using any harsh cosmetic products on your skin.
Apple cider vinegar is believed to be quite handy as a natural treatment against white spots on face. Simply prepare an apple cider solution with water and swab your skin with it at least twice a day. The healing effects are attributed to the acidity of vinegar that could restrict any bacterial or fungal growth. If these home treatments don’t show any results even after a week, then it would be best to consult a dermatologist.
