Hi doctor,

I have some white spots on my neck and face. Even, I have some white hair on my eyebrows also. I have white hair in my head for a long time. I have PCOD. Before two months, I had a C-section delivery. After this, I started to have these spots. Kindly go through my attached pictures.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the pictures and descriptions (attachment removed to protect patient identity). You are suffering from a benign condition called pityriasis Versicolor. It is a superficial fungal infection that occurs commonly in the summer months. Drink lots of water. Keep yourself hydrated. Use cotton clothes. Take bath twice daily. Increased sweating can aggravate this condition. You can take tablet AF 400 (Fluconazole) one tablet tonight. Apply Onabet cream on the spots at the night. Kepp your dandruff under control. It will take more than three weeks to get back your normal skin color. For white hair, you can start taking Biotin-containing hair supplements like Hairbless tablet once daily.

Thank you doctor,

Can I take these tablets while breastfeeding?
