Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query, an elucidate history and near-clear picture. The appearance of the skin with small bumps a t some places, blotchy at places, whitening at others and a red hallow around the white patch looks like a fungal infection. We can clearly see the white patch at the ear, red around indicating the cause. This appears due to the following factors: - In most cases the exact cause can not be pin-pointed. - Loss of integrity of the skin due to vitamin deficiencies and so. - Reduction of the body resistance due to flu or any other medical illness. - Worms infestation. - Excessive sweating, hot / humid atmosphere. - This can be combination of some of hte factors working together. I would suggest you the following: - Get started with proper vitamin and iron supplements. - Dewormin doses. - Keep the skin clean with plain water splashes 3 to 4 times in a day and do not apply any soap or such things to the faces. - Watch for other sites in the body, there may be similar lesions. - Consult the Pediatrician and a Dermatologist for proper clinical evaluation, investigations, and prescription based treatment. - Please do not apply anything to the faces at all till seen by the Doctors as the visual impressions of hte disease is very important in a proper diagnosis so that the further treatment will be easy and effective. I hope I have tried my best to give you the clues to have the earliest and best possible diagnosis and an appropriate treatment.
