Tinea versicolor is also known as Pityriasis Versicolor. It is a fungal infection of the skin commonly seen in teenagers and adults but can be seen at any age. The fungus lives on the skin and when it grows out of control, it causes discolouration of the skin producing patches lighter or darker in colour than the surrounding skin.
The infection is non-contagious and does not spread from one person to another.
The fungus is seen normally on the skin as it lives on the healthy skin. It grows only when it is triggered by factors like humidity, hot weather, oily skin, excessive sweating, weak immune system etc.
