Sporanox (itraconazole) to PREVENT recurrent tinea versicolor
Some physicians are now prescribing Sporanox (itraconazole) to PREVENT recurrent tinea versicolor.
This fungal infection of the upper torso and neck is especially prevalent in warm, humid climates. Many patients hate the skin discolouration it causes.
Sporanox and other antifungals are often used for TREATMENT...but relapse is common. So patients often apply time-consuming topical treatments once or twice a week to prevent recurrence.
