Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Tinea versicolor. Darkened patches on the skin around a man's armpit. These result from a fungal infection known as tinea versicolor, or pityriasis versicolor, which is caused by the yeasts Malassezia globosa and Malassezia furfur. These are normally found on the skin without causing any problems, but in warm humid environments they may proliferate excessively. Areas most commonly affected are the back, upper arms, chest and neck. Symptoms are discoloured skin with some scaliness and itching. Treatment is with antifungal cream.
