What are these White Patches?

Have you observed white patches on your child’s face and worry about how to get rid of it. In school going kids, we observe this very often and worry if this can be a matter of concern. It is common to compare white patches to leucoderma or vitiligo but both are not the same. Leucoderma is permanent or long term and the growing patches loose skin color. These white patches are a skin condition called Pytiriasis Alba and are harmless.

This is generally observed in kids between the age of 3 to 16 which usually affects the face but can also impact the neck, shoulders, and arms. The spots start as pink or red patches and later fade into abnormal light & white patches which are negligible on light skin and visible on dark skin. These patches are generally found in circular or oval and can be in any irregular shape. Not painful but can be itchy at times.
