How will exposure to the sun affect tinea versicolor?

Would it help it, make it worse, or have little to no affect?

Hello ddkk1000 -

According to this resource, Tinea Veriscolor , - "Exposure to the sun may trigger or worsen an episode, and a tan makes the rash more visible."

Hope this is helpful. Take Care,
