Pityriasis (tinea) versicolor and seborrheic dermatitis are two very common skin diseases. Pityriasis versicolor is a chronic superficial fungal disease usually located on the upper trunk, neck, or upper arms. In pityriasis versicolor, the lipophilic yeast Malassezia (also know as Pityrosporum ovale or P. orbiculare) changes from the blastospore form to the mycelial form under the influence of predisposing factors. The most important exogenous factors are high temperatures and a high relative…

A new ketoconazole topical gel formulation in seborrhoeic dermatitis: an updated review of the mechanism
TLDR
The mechanisms behind the therapeutic effect of ketoconazole for the management of Seborrhoeic dermatitis form the basis of this review.
Diagnosis and treatment of seborrheic dermatitis.
TLDR
Treatment with antifungal agents such as topical ketoconazole and topical corticosteroids and calcineurin inhibitors is the mainstay of therapy for seborrheic dermatitis of the face and body, and patients should be directed to initiate therapy with one of these agents.
A case of anti- pityriasis versicolor therapy that preserves healthy mycobiome
TLDR
Cases of PV represented by two types of skin lesions in one patient may be associated with distinct Malassezia species, which can significantly complicate the treatment of dermatosis, which by definition is associated with a significant percentage of relapses.
Roles of Adapalene in the Treatment of Pityriasis Versicolor
TLDR
Adapalene was the favorable option in the treatment of pityriasis versicolor and there were no significant differences in efficacy between the two groups.
Skin diseases associated with Malassezia species.
TLDR
This review focuses on the clinical, mycologic, and immunologic aspects of the various skin diseases associated with Malassezia and highlights the importance of individual MalasseZia species in the different dermatologic disorders related to these yeasts.
Role of Antifungal Agents in the Treatment of Seborrheic Dermatitis
TLDR
Antifungal therapy reduces the number of yeasts on the skin, leading to an improvement in seborrheic dermatitis, with a wide availability of preparations, including creams, shampoos, and oral formulations.

Immune reactions to Pityrosporum ovale in adult patients with atopic and seborrheic dermatitis.
TLDR
IgE antibodies against P. ovale were found in two thirds of the patients with atopic dermatitis and were more frequent in patients with lesions predominantly in the seborrheic areas, which suggest that delayed allergic reactions to P. Ovale may also be important.
