Abstract

The susceptibility of 64 Malassezia furfur isolates to Melaleuca alternifolia oil was determined. The minimum inhibitory concentration for 90% of isolates was 0.25% by agar dilution and 0.12% by broth dilution. These data indicate that tea tree oil may be useful in the treatment of skin conditions involving M. furfur.
