For Tinea Versicolor "I've had Tinea Versicolor come and go for a few years now and it has been a pain. I did my research and saw many success stories from using Selsun Blue with 1% selinium sulfide in it. I've only been using for a day leaving it on over night and I have seen amazing results it's almost gone! It is also getting rid of my white spots. The only con is that it may burn/itch and can be messy. Other than that it is a huge success!"

For Tinea Versicolor "Selsun blue had been suggested to me by my doctor for Times Versicolor and as soon as I started using it I woke up the next day with my "spots" doubled pretty much, now I'm so itchy that I can't sleep sometimes."

For Seborrheic Dermatitis "Allergist suggested I use for 2 weeks, then go to once or twice a week. Well, the condition returns and returns and the horrid smell has gotten into everything. The sickening smell is in my jetted tub, towels, shirts, and my neck sweat smells like it."

For Tinea Versicolor "I bought over the counter & added 7 drops of Tea Tree Oil which is an antifungal. I have had this condition for 40 yrs. I have been to Drs. but I try different methods. This is the first with Selsun Shampoo. I showered & then used the shampoo & left it on for 10 min. The itch is already better. It is hard to rate it because it is the first time I used it with the Tea Tree Oil."

For Tinea Versicolor "I've had some success using Selsun blue for Tinea Versicolor. I've had it for years not knowing what it was but I pinpointed it. I value the healing that Selsun Blue has done for it but I really don't like the smell. I leave it on for about a half an hour and shower it off. It hasn't fully gotten rid of it but it's gotten pretty close."
