Before proposing a method of treatment, our dermatologist London will make a diagnosis using an ultraviolet lamp or a sample to see if it is truly Pityriasis Versicolor. This is because the appearance is mostly confused for eczema and nappy rash due to their discolouration.
In most cases, the treatment can be carried out at home provided you know the right ingredients to use. In several dermatology clinics London, the treatment is based on the use of antifungal shampoo that contains mainly ketoconazole. This product usually gives very good results in a single application. At the end of the treatment, white spots will replace the old skin lesions and will disappear after exposure to the sun.
At Clearskin London, we have a stock of special ketoconazole creams, which will eliminate this disease after one application. When you purchase over-the-counter creams, there’s a risk of getting one that doesn’t work, which is why it’s mostly advised to purchase from a certified dermatology clinic.
