5 months old has white skin patches on chest, now seen on eyelids. Is it vitiligo ?

My daughter is now 5 months old, and she has these small white skin patches (2-3 mm in diameter) on her chest..just where the chin touches the chest and now it is appearing on her eyelids too. The pediatrician recommeneded antifungal cream and multivitamin drops. Is there any concern at this time, whether it is vitiligo?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Look whether the white spots are milky white or hypopigmented. Second thing, is scaling a feature of those spots?
Vitiligo presents as milky white lesion or turns soon into this colour, and is without scaling.
You must take opinion of a dermatologist also, because if it is vitiligo, early initiation of treatment will make lot of difference.
