Hi Jayanth,
You could probably be having seborrheic dermatitis. To treat your skin concern, use a ketoconazole based shampoo every other day to keep scalp clean. You may also apply a steroid antifungal lotion over your scalp and white patches over ears, face and back everyday. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
