White patch on eyelid, hydrocortisone 0.5 ointment, fungal infection

My daughter, aged 4 years 8 months, developed a small white patch on her left eyelid . The GP prescribed Hydrocortisone 0.5% ointment to be applied twice a day for seven days as he thought it was fungal infection . This has not helped. She does not have such patches anywhere else on her body. There is no family history of this. Ethnicity is Indian.
