Nicole Naicker Hi my son gets patchy rash on skin from sun and it comes on face and neck

Carol Hlela Nicole, its likely a skin condition we call: Pityriasis Alba, which a form of eczema that gets worsened by the sun. Its best to treat with 1% hydrocortisone, but then add a suncreen to his regime.

Jennifer Sukhdeo Perumal Hi Dr. Carol Hlela, my daughter tends to get white patches on her face during summer, what could be causing it? #johnsonsbabyhealth

Carol Hlela Jennifer, you may have seen my response to Nicole, its likely a skin condition we call: Pityriasis Alba, which is a form of eczema that gets worsened by the sun. Its quite common, we are seeing a lot of it now as well becuase of the season change. Its best to treat with 1% hydrocortisone, but then add a suncreen to her regime.
