I have a daughter of 3 years old. Recently since four days, I have noticed on her face a small patches more of like skin allergy. I am attaching her picture which shows her allergy on the left upper lips and cheeks. Kindly advise ointment for her, as we live out of the country. So you are requested to prescribe an ointment. I have used Derma due ointment and even virgin coconut oil but there is no use.

I have seen the pictures. (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
This seems to be a type of Sun-induced dermatitis commonly present in children. Apply sunscreen like Photostable regularly twice daily over the face eg, at 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM. Apply any moisturizer repeatedly. You can apply Mometasone or Hydrocortisone cream over the lesion once-daily for 10 days only and then stop this cream.

Thank you doctor,
But she rarely goes into the sun. As we stay in the middle east, maximum we stay indoors, hardly she goes to the balcony. I request you to post the picture of ointment so that the same combination alternative I would buy from here.

Sun-induced photodermatitis or PMLE (polymorphic light eruption) can occur in children even on minimal exposure to sunlight and even due to indoor lighting. Nonetheless, you can apply Eumosone M cream instead of the earlier written cream along with sunscreen and moisturizer. There is no provision to add a picture here, but you can search on the internet for Eumosone M cream. It is a combination of Clobetasone and Miconazole.
