Brief Answer:
Looks like pitryriasis XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hi. I have seen the attached pictures.
It could be mostly pitryriasis XXXXXXX This is commonly seen in kids at this age.
No treatment is required usually.
Frequent face wash, avoiding cosmetics, powder, etc might work.
If already tried and still persistent, consult your skin specialist to start that medicine you mentioned.
