I want to ask my 7-year-old son …. Lately there are white around the forehead and cheeks like phlegm and give ointment that I don’t have a pharmacy but can’t do it … I want to give a pill but I’m worried because it’s still small, what can be given a pill …. n what medicine or ointment is good for my ankle … Trimakasi ..

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically, whitish spots on the cheeks are not always caused by fungal infections (tinea versicolor). Whitish spots can be caused by other things such as:

post-inflammatory hypopigmentation or vaginal discharge that appears after inflammation of the skin
idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis or spotting caused by excessive sun exposure to the skin
vitiligo
leprosy
nevus depigmentosus, which is an acquired skin pigmentation disorder from birth

It is best not to give any ointment to a child's skin (especially if the ointment you give is classified as hard medicine / medicine with a red circle label). Do not give just any medicine to take (pills) also for children, especially if the drug is hard drugs. We recommend that you do a direct examination first to the dermatologist to ascertain the cause of vaginal discharge on your child's skin. Treatment of course must be adjusted to the cause, if the child is given antifungal drugs even though the vaginal discharge is not fungus, then of course the drug will not work and the spots will not disappear.


For now, try to put sunscreen on the child's face every time the child wants to go outside the house. Be sure to reapply sunscreen on your face every 2 hours. Ask your child to avoid direct sunlight on his face.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
