Selsun Blue For Skin Fungus

Selsun Blue the anti-dandruff shampoo can be effective at getting rid of certain forms of skin fungus infections. It appears to be particularly effective for a condition known as tinea versicolor where the chest, back, upper-arm and trunk can be affected. This is a common skin infection, particularly in adolescents and young adults living in warm climates.

The condition is caused by the Malassezia family of yeasts (a type of fungus). These and other yeasts normally reside harmlessly on the skin without causing negative symptoms. It is not completely understood what causes an outbreak to develop although it is thought that warm and humid environments may contribute. Tinea versicolor has the following symptoms:

  • Uneven spots on the torso that can merge together into larger irregular shapes with a sharp border. The fungus changes the color of the skin it infects.
  • Affected skin can develop fine scaly flakes
  • The patches tend to be darker than the surrounding skin and have a reddish or pinkish color (but occasionally they appear lighter).
  • The condition can cause itching and irritation, but typically less so than other forms of skin fungus such as athletes foot (tinea pedis) or jock itch (tine cruris). Read more about the different types of fungus on skin infections.

Selsun Blue For Skin Fungus Treatment

The condition responds well to Selenium Sulfide which is why Selsun Blue shampoo, which contains 1% Selenium Sulfide, can be effective. The Selenium Sulfide shampoo should be applied to dry skin and washed off after 5-10 minutes on a twice daily basis. As noted by several Selsun Blue reviews, if large areas of the body are affected using the shampoo is more cost effective than using over the counter antifungal creams.

Selsum Blue may not be effective in severe or advanced infections where stronger antifungal treatments may be needed. It is highly advisable to discuss your condition with a doctor both for a definite diagnosis as well as treatment advice that is pertinent to your specific condition. Ask whether using Selsun shampoo for skin fungus infections makes sense for your individual case.

Tinea versicolor?

2008-04-10 17:02:23 by --

Anybody ever had this and treated it successfully? Supposedly we ALL have it in our skin, it's some kind of yeast condition/fungus (naturally occurring) that can be made worse or more noticeable by tanning, i.e. the little white spots become more visible.
I've been doing the selenium sulfide 1% (selsun blue) but it doesn't seem to be helping.
Anybody here had it?

    Over the last month my turtle has developed a small white spot on its shell and more are appearing. the spots feel like the rest of the shell. PLEASE HELP what are these spots!

    • A picture would help. Chances are it's just mineral deposits from the water. If it's soft and smelly it's shell rot. Make sure you have an adequate basking spot where the turtle can come out of the water and completely d …, and apply triple antibiotic cream immediately. The enclosure should be kept as clean as possible, and all feces and uneaten food should be removed at least daily. The water should be changed daily, or sooner if soiled.

    • If you are simply looking for a way to reduce the appearance of those white spots, a few tips can help:


      Step1 Rub on a sunblock with minimum 15 SPF at least twice a day, even on overcast days. Whil … go unnoticed until the rest of the skin is darkened by the sun, therefore it is often confused for sun poisoning. To treat this fungus, apply a light layer of athlete's foot cream to the affected area daily for 2 weeks.
