Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This is a clear cut case of pityriasis alba (attachment removed to protect patient identity), which is very common in young kids. It is a kind of mild allergy due to sunlight, food or any other external and internal factor.

It is treatable and not a worrisome problem. Some time due to lack of calcium and presence of worms also cause it.

Treatment for pityriasis alba is very simple and almost always effective.

I suggest you tablet Ostocalcium (Calcium phosphate) one tablet every day for one month. Give him milk and good nutritious food.

Tablet Albendazole 400 only one tablet has to be taken.

Apply Flutivate cream (Fluticasone propionate) over the white patches once in night for one month. Do not rub the cream. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.

To avoid sunlight allergy use sunscreen (Suncros 50 SPF) over face twice in a day, which is during morning and afternoon.

Continue this treatment for one month and the problem will be resolved definitely.
