Dealing with Tinea Versicolor

It's been a while since I've last blogged, primarily due to a few reasons. One of those was a recent diagnosis of Tinea Versicolor, or TV.

TV is a yeast infection of the skin, characterized by pink and brown blotches that usually appear on the trunk of the body - notably the chest and shoulders. I didn't notice it at first, since it started around late summer, and I thought it was my skin peeling (something that happens to me often after I get a tan).
