Pityriasis Versicolor is easy to diagnose by its appearance. It comes in the form of spots which are well defined. Originally, these patches are just 2 mm in size but expand to several centimetres if nothing is done. The colour is not left out either. From pin or beige to dark brown. The areas affected are those prone to heat, especially sunburn.
In severe cases, what started as a small patch can transform to large patches which may cover the whole area. This transformation is often linked to excessive sun exposure. Fortunately, Pityriasis varicose doesn’t cause any form of pain, and neither does it itch
It isn’t contagious like warts. Hence, contact with an affected person will not spread the disease.
