Most dermatology clinics have attributed the cause of this disease to all kind of factors; the latest being a reaction to cosmetics products. In reality, Pityriasis Versicolor is as a result of the multiplication of a group of yeast fungus of the genus Malassezia.

This yeast is an integral part of the natural flora of the skin, which acts as a defence against diseases. But in certain situations, such as heat spikes, excessive perspiration, application of a greasy cream, the microflora proliferates rapidly and causes these small brown or white spots. This fungus is most common in summer when heat and humidity are high.

However, several dermatologists London research suggests that it can also occur in people who have weak immune system due to an illness or treatments administered. This disease is common in young adults and teenagers than kids. In kids, it’s wrongly diagnosed as a nappy rash when it appears around the genitals due to the similarity in their appearance, but their symptoms are quite different.



ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
