Candida is a species of yeast that can cause an infection of the skin in certain circumstances. Often the skin abnormalities are located in warm, damp areas such as the groin or under the breasts. The symptoms consist of itching, redness and scaling.
Pityriasis versicolor: 1 to 2 times a day for 2 weeks.
The yeast that causes pityriasis versicolor is Malassezia furfur. An infection with this yeast mainly occurs on the shoulders and the upper part of the trunk and upper arms. The symptoms consist of slightly itchy and slightly scaling patches. In people who are fairly sun-tanned, the patches are usually lighter than the rest of the skin, and in people who have been exposed to little or no sun, the spots are usually light brown.
An improvement in the symptoms usually occurs after a few days. Irregular use or premature stoppage of the cream increases the chance of the symptoms recurring. If no improvement has occurred after 1 to 2 weeks, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
