Patient Comments: Tinea Versicolor - Similar Conditions

Before being diagnosed with tinea versicolor, what other condition did you think you might have?

Comment from: Jmannnn., 13-18 Male (Patient) Published: April 19

Before I found out I had versicolor, I thought I had vitiligo, because the areas on my body that have a yeast infection have big spots.
