Thank you for your query.

It is very difficult to suggest whether the same ointment shall be effective without having a look at the lesions. You can give it a try and in case there is no improvement then you should see the dermatologist.

However, most of the time the white spots disappear on their own and nothing much has to be done for them.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
