White patches near scrotum,tinea versicolor.

Hi I have white patches on both sides of my legs where they meet the scrotum . I ve had them for a few years now. I have also been diagnosed with tinea vascular on my Lower back. It was there for a couple of years and was rampant at one point. But recently They have all but disappeared. However the patches in the scrotum leg area are still there. Also when the sun is out and I don t put sunscreen on my face I get slightly visible white patch On both cheeks. Thanks

Hello Kar,
Welcome here on hcm.
In my opinion you are having a vitiliog patch that does not need any treatment as it is under covered area.
The white patches on face can be treated by a good moistener before coming under the sun.
