2 month old child, brown patches on face. Treatment for cafe au lait spots?

Hello Doctor, I ve a 2 month old baby and she has light brown patches on her face. My Pediatrician says it could be cafe au lait spots and that we need to wait it out. I also did visit a pediatric dermotoligist and he said it could be due to yeast infection . Now my question is if those spots are cafe au lait, is there a way to treat it. I know its not harmless, but considering that its on the face - I want to have it treated. Thank You.

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.Do not panic.
Cafe au lait spots cannot be cured with medicines.If they r disfiguring plastic surgery can be done.
On the other hand yeast infection can be treated with miconazole creams.However yeast infections do not look like cafe au lait spots!!
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
