Thanks for writing to health care magic.

First of all let me congratulate you for breast feeding your baby.

Please continue to exclusively breast feed till the baby is six months old and there after continue to breast feed till the baby is 2 years old. Breast feeding has whole lot of advantages.

Pityriasis alba could be one of the causes of white patches on the face.

Not to worry the condition settles down .... not much treatment is required.

some pediatricians prescribe low dose steroid creams for such conditions.

You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
Take care
