Tinea versicolor is a skin disorder caused by yeast or fungal infecting on the skin and the disorder leaves certain areas of body skin discolored or with pale marks. Though the disease can be conclusively treated with proper medical care, in many cases the disease tends to be recurring and thus making the case a chronic one. The disorder is particularly seen in people with lot of sweating habit, dry, itchy skin conclusively, dandruff, hot and humid tropical climate makes people more vulnerable to such infectious skin problems.
While treating the disorder with appropriate medical care is not a challenging task, often preventing the disease from returning seems to be a greater challenge for the frequently affected people. Here we are going to offer a few guidelines in relation to preventing the disorder from returning.

Follow doctor prescription
While being affected by the disorder or seen the first symptom appearing on the skin, consult a specialist doctor and follow the prescribed medical care. Remember some home remedies can make you feel better but seeing the few recovering symptoms if you think the disease to be gone, you might have mistaken and the disease can return sooner than you think. The infection on your skin needs to be treated with certainty and from the root itself and that course of remedies can only be better envisaged by a professional and specialist physician.
In many cases it gets severe when it returns and so preventing it from returning is the most important thing. This is why even after you got rid of the infectious skin condition and discolored skin, the specialist doctor will request you to persistently follow certain medications. Do not stop applying medications until and unless it is directed by the consulting physician.
Use product which are suggested by doctor
There is a wide array of over-the-counter skin care products and drugs that are sold as ready made solution and people normally get tempted to use them, particularly when they see the products giving effects in driving away the discolored patches on the skin. But these so called healing effects may not last longer and the infection may return as soon as you stop using them. This is the precise reason why to treat the disease from its root and preventing it from returning you do not have any better choice than strictly going by the doctor’s suggestion.
Complete treatment course
The disease typically returns to patients who do not complete the course of treatment. Many people seeing the initial good effects of the course stops undergoing medications in between and this makes them vulnerable to the recurrence of the disease. Don’t stop medical care just seeing the first recovery signs, because the infection is more probable to return if not treated with certainty and from the root. Contrary to the popular perception medical treatment of tinea versicolor is directed not to drive off the symptoms in the surface but provide conclusive cure from the root cause.
