Malassezia (Fungal Acne)
Do you have little itchy bumps that never seem to go away? Do they tend to get worse in hot and humid weather? The acne medication you’ve been using for a long time doesn’t work or progressively makes it worse?
It is extremely important to differentiate MF since regular acne treatment such as Benzoyl Peroxide or oral antibiotics (prescribed by your doctors) can cause your fungal infection to worsen.
MF is commonly misdiagnosed as Acne Vulgaris.
So, how do you know if you have MF/ Fungal acne?
- The best way to check if you have it is by going to a dermatologist and request for a fungal infection check. They will scrape/extract a part of the lesion and look at it under the microscope
- The acne medication you’ve been using for a long time doesn’t work or progressively makes it worse
