My 3 years old daughter has white patch on skin but its not itchy

Hi , My name is Nisha .My daughter who is currently 3 year old developed a white patch on the skin .We took her to the doctor and were told that she has eczema .She as given a mild ointment and said it would go on its own.Its been three months since.Her white patch is still there .We took her to the doctor once again and now we are told that she has vitiligo .I am shocked ..there is no family history of vitiligo .Also the white skin patch is dry and very uneven to touch .She does not itch at all .This is the only patch she has on the skin . Please tell me what this is and how to get it treated .I am really worried for my daughter

Thanks and welcome to HCM..,
According to your history...,it could be VITILLIGO...,
With unknown cause..
But your child have only 3 years so ..good treatment is available.,
VITILLIGO....Organic specific auto immune disease charcterised by
Depigmented, usually symmetrical (may not be)..
due to antimelanocytic antibodies....,
no itching.., only burns on exposure to SUN ...ok.
good treatment is there........
but not universally successful...
1) Topical use of Clobetasol cream...Tenovate glaxo company..,
2) De-worming the child by giving Levamisole syrup....
3) Use sunscreen lotion on patch avoid burning sensation......
4) wait some more months for result, it will take time..,ok

Hello Nisha ji,
welcome to Health Care magic forum,
Well if it is really a white patch only with no other symptoms than possibly she is not suffering from eczema, she may have either calcium deficiency or she may be really suffering from vitiligo, in both the cases u need not to worry, well you should start giving her Homeopathic calcium tablets, as if even if there is no calcium deficiency it will make her bones strong, and if it is a vitilgo, u should start Homeopathic doctor as it will be the best solution for her.
