Welcome to HealthCare Magic. From my experience the patches wont turn white in just 1 month, perhaps they were there for some time as they start will very light depigmentation which slowly becomes whitish over the time. Please avoid Fish, Eggs, Curd, Milk and all sour articles to avoid spreading. You can rub mustard seeds oil on the patches to see any changes. Please email me photos of the patches to check or for more information you may visit
