So, I have Pityriasis Versicolor and have had it for years. I'm 24 and would say i have probably had it for about 10 years now. It started as a small patch on my back and now the effected area on my back has expanded. I also now have a few patches near and below by bra line, on my stomach area. I am not greatly affected by it in any way, in all honesty I just see it more as an annoyance. I would still quite happily wear a bikini or a dress that shows the areas where the PV is, like I said its just annoying that its there! The first I went to my GP, she was anything but helpful. I remember her exact words were that an option for me would be to be have a skin graft...like seriously. The second time, I was given the name of two anti-danduffs shampoos to purchase, one being Nizoral. I have tried this shampoo and I have not really seen a difference, in all honesty.
Any other cream/spray treatments anyone could reccommend would be appreciated - I have read before that because the condition is yeast related cutting on yeast, e.g. bread can help...has anyone tried this?
