Doctor: White itchy patches on skin is seen in many conditions like eczema, dermatitis, tinea versicolor, few fungal infections, psoriasis, etc. The patches must be examined for size, extent of discoloration, scaling if present and few pressure signs. If required a biopsy must be done to arrive at a diagnosis for further treatment. So you are advised to get examined by a dermatologist for further management.
