Selsun for skin fungus
I once had a skin discoloration on my chest and shoulders. It made me feel very uncomfortable and conscious each time I wore low-cut necklines and sleeveless shirts. I made an appointment with my doctor to have it seen, and she said it was a type of skin blemish called Tinea Versicolor.What is Tinea Versicolor?
It is a type of fungal infection of the skin caused by Malassezia globosa fungus that causes the affected area to itch and discolor. It usually appears on the chest, shoulders, back, and underneath the breasts. Most types of Tinea Versicolor look like scaly patches of discolored skin. They are usually reddish brown in color. Mine was not scaly but slightly brownish and was not itchy. This is not a contagious type of disease and is easily treated.Common Treatment
My doctor advised me to treat it with Selsun Blue shampoo by simply applying some dabs into the affected area. Spread evenly, massage and wait for about thirty minutes before rinsing. I did it as a daily regimen for two weeks, after which, an improvement was noticed. I continued for a few more days until the blemishes were totally gone. Tinea versicolor tends to recur after several months of treatment, so I was told to do the same regimen once a year to prevent it from coming back.
Selsun Blue shampoo is an inexpensive over-the-counter remedy, which contains 1% selenium sulfide ingredient that helps slow down the growth of yeast that causes infection. While it worked for me, it doesn't mean that it would work for everyone. Depending on the amount of discoloration and how infected a skin is, a stronger type of medication may be needed to treat it. In some cases, a prescribed medication is preferred.Important Thing to Remember
It is advisable to see a doctor if you experience discoloration on your skin in order to get an accurate diagnosis. Before starting the treatment with Selsun Blue, it is better to confirm from a medical expert that what you're actually having is Tinea Versicolor, and not some other type of skin disease.

My sister got brown spots on her stomach a few years ago, looked like a large, slightly discolored-brown patch. Not sure if what you have is similar, but her doctor told her it was a skin fungus (nothing harmful) and to apply selsun blue (the anti-dandruff shampoo) to the spots. The active ingredient (selenium sulfide) is an antifungal. Just apply, leave on there for a little while and then wash off with warm water. It can burn if you leave it on for too long. I am not a doctor and have no idea what your brown spots might be, but this might be worth a shot.
