When you mention discoloration is it white or reddish? Is there any other symptoms as well? Many conditions like seborrhic dermatitis, vitiligo etc., needs to be ruled out. Please take her to her pediatrician who would be able to diagnose and guide you further.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What other symptoms does your child have? Have you immunized her with all the necessary vaccines? May be it is a Macular rash typical to Measles which begins near the hair line and spreads to other parts of the body and normally fades in the same fashion. But you will have to get her examined by a Pediatrician to confirm it as she may need Routine supportive care of maintaining hydration and anti pyretics.

Good Luck.
