Thanks for contacting XXXXXXX and Ayurveda for your query, and going by your case presentation following causative/probable, preventive and dietary regimen is given:

     Any other associated disease like diabetes, hypothyroidism, or decreased nutrition status? Any history of use of cosmetics/medications? Do investigate for RA Factor!
     Due to dry skin is there any sort of inflammation or infection, the so called “Skin Problem” in our history?
     Is there consumption of any endotoxins either in the form of herbs, mineral or animal product by the patient.
     Are/were these white spots examined by a dermatologist, does they itch or hurt? Because they are small might be macules.
     Psoriasis like symptoms near backside of head could be “Scalp Psoriasis”

     Take diet XXXXXXX in protein,iron,folic acid,brown rice, orange,green vegetables,wheat, barley,green gram,lemon,turmeric,bitter gourd,garlic,pomegranate,nutmeg,bitter and sweet (not sour) food, dry ginger, khadira, black pepper,long pepper,old clarified butter,honey,light exercise,massage,boiled and filtered water to drink, tea,coffee(not after meals or during periods of fasting)
