Brief Answer:
Pityriasis XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern and I have viewed the images.
I ll keep a possibility of Pityriasis XXXXXXX which presents as ill-defined, dirty white/ hypopigmented patches, usually on the face.
I suggest application of tacrolimus 0.03%ointment, twice daily. It is to be rubbed in gently. Tacrolimus ointment is a prescription medication and I advice you to talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.
