I have tinea versicolor BAD!! It is taking over my body. I need to use an antifungal cream like clotrimizole- basically a generic athlete's foot cream. Does anyone know if this is safe. It is a category B. I can't find any info one way or the other.

I have used it but not as extensively as you might need to. Do you have a midwife you can call? I'm pretty sure most OBs would say it is safe.

I'm not sure if it's safer, but you might could consider using tea tree oil... worked great on my athlete's foot I'd google it to see if it worked for what you needed it for, of course.

Personally I'd use diluted grapefruit seed extract.
