Tinea Versicolor are fungal infections caused by micro-organism Malassezia furfur. The infections led to symptoms such as white and black patches onto the skin, however, the infections can be treated by using antifungal preparations. The disease is not severe but on long term, if left untreated, may lead to various skin disorders. In this article, a brief study of the disease as well as the nature of the micro-organism has been shown. Along with the full description of the disease such as pathophysiology and diagnosis, a novel approach for its treatment using the natural herbs has been discussed which may be the limelight of this paper. Herbs which are inhabitated in nature having anti-fungal activity has been thoroughly studied along with its legit researches and experiments.
