Brief Answer:
pityriasis XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Thank you. Yes, it is pityrisis XXXXXXX which is a faint white dry patch on face and it due to underlying dry skin. I suggest you to continue with the moisturizer. Over it you may use hydrocortisone 1% cream (Cutisoft cream) for the white patch, twice daily for 3-4 weeks. It is available over the counter.

Take care
