Tea Tree Oil Spray and Tinea Versicolor

Teatree

Even though Tinea Versicolor (a fungal skin problem) is related to what is going on inside of your body, sometimes you just need a quick fix.  I have had Tinea my entire adult life and have tried everything.  The first doctor I went to told me that I should get a tan to reduce its appearance (I am not joking…she clearly doesn’t understand Tinea)  and then she laughed at me when I asked her if soap would make it worse which made me feel stupid, then she prescribed something for jock itch.  The next doctor prescribed Selson Blue which is a pain in the ass to keep up with.  Ughhh.

After trying these treatments I decided that I didn’t want to expose myself to all these chemicals, so while at New Seasons Market I asked a woman in the wellness department if she had any suggestions for my fungal skin problem and she showed me a tea tree oil spray made by Desert Essence.  It has a strong frangrance but it works so well!  In a week of using it once per day the Tinea disappears!  It comes back after I quit using it, but until I figure out how to balance out whatever forces are going on inside of me, it’s nice to have a quick solution, especially during bathing suit season.
