Brief Answer: relax Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. White patch could be pitrysis XXXXXXX which is selflimiting and does not need any treatment. In case it spreads or increases in size get him examined by pediatrician as physical examination will be required. Apply coconut oil over it to prevent dryness. I also like to suggest that till 6months of age baby should be given only milk and compementary feeding should be started after completion of 6months. Hope I have answered your query,let me know if you have any further query. Wishing your baby good health. God bless...
