Advice for Condition

Recommended Posts

Guest SM

I have just finished perusing your entire site and product line, and I am very interested. I have a skin condition I think is pityriasis tinea versicolor (the pale kind).

 

Disclaimer: I am a medical professional, but only moderately-educated in dermatologic conditions.

 

I want to avoid "drugs" if at all possible; but this recurrence has not resolved in 6 months. It was initially confined to only across my mid-back and has only in the past 2 months spread to my shoulders, posterior arms and forearms, and abdomin. I recently read that salicyclic acid may be a viable treatment and that is how I came upon your products. I would be most appreciative if you could lend your opinion as to the efficacy of salicylic (or glycolic) acid in the treatment of this condition.

 

P.S. I have been using an Olive Oil soap and applying Olive Oil lotion after showering. If I should not use soap at all on my skin, is there something else (other than water) I could use to maintain proper pH? Thank you so much for your time in any advice you might provide!

Since tinea versicolor is a fungus, you may find that an anti-fungal cleanser will be enough to keep its growth under control. KAVI makes three anti-fungal cleansers: DermaWash, Aqua KAVI, and Coral KAVI.

 

Coral KAVI contains 3% salicylic acid and 2% colloidal sulfur, both anti-fungal actives. KAVI DermaWash and Aqua KAVI each contain 1% colloidal sulfur.

 

Coral KAVI is used primarily to treat acne, though its ingredients are effective in the treatment of many skin conditions. Please note that Coral KAVI is an antiseborrheic and can be used on dry skin only with appropriate moisturization.

 

All three cleansers will help balance the skin’s pH which itself will be restrictive to the fungus.

 

Weekly application of KAVI Salicylic Acid 15 or 25 can complement use of our cleansers to control fungal growths.

 

For more severe cases of tinea versicolor, you are advised to consult with a specialist who can prescribe more intensive treatment.
