Thank you for your query.

I suggest that you do not apply anything over the white patch and see the progress. In case it grows in size then it shall be better to show to a doctor and seek expert opinion. Fungal infections do not respond to Silderm Mixi but would get aggravated with it.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Medication without doctors' advice is not advisable for any condition - especially for the baby and that too for its face....
The new patch may or may not be related to the medicine used - antibiotic, anti-fungal and steroid combination...
The best option is to consult a dermatologist and get a definite diagnosis and then treat - it doesn't sound like an emergency...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
