Tinea versicolor is usually caused by a widespread fungus named Malassezia furfur. It is also known as Pityrosporum orbicular and Pityrosporum ovale. This yeast causes white spots to develop on the skin of the infected person. These white spots are itchy and exist mostly on moist areas of your body.
