Thanks for writing to us.
The hypopigmented patch on the skin is likely to be due to contact dermatitis. A direct examination by dermatologist will help in diagnosis. Usually a steroid ointment helps in bringing the desired relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
