How can I tell if it is Skin Fungus or another skin disorder?

1303505297 43 How can I tell if it is Skin Fungus or another skin disorder?

I think I may have tinea versicolor on my chest but I am not sure. I have an area the size of a half dollar or so that has brownish colored spots on it. I am not sure if it is a skin fungus or another condition. I have only noticed it recently since the weather has become warmer. it is a little bumpy and dry. I tried scrubbing and exfoliating the area which irritated the skin and it became red (that's when I really noticed the bumps that almost looked like tiny pimples). I put Vicks Vaporub on after (as this can treat nail fungus) and the redness disappeared and the brown spots returned. I am not sure what this is…. Any ideas? I have heard Monistat can be used for skin fungus infections caused by yeast. Any thoughts?

This is the type of problem I would run to a dermatologist for an answer.

Good luck and best wishes
