DHF is a disease caused by dengue virus infection. DHF is transmitted through mosquito bites, and is not caused by working in a dusty place or not being affected by paint.
From the current situation you are experiencing, white patches that occur on the face that are numb and scaly can be caused by seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is a condition that is quite common. Seborrheic dermatitis is generally more common in oily areas, such as facial skin, scalp, groin, chest. Seborrheic dermatitis can cause white patches to appear with scaly skin, the scalp can dandruff, usually accompanied by itching. Seborrheic dermatitis is usually affected due to excessive stress and can also be associated with HIV infection.
Seborrheic dermatitis is not contagious, and seborrheic dermatitis may require a long healing time. In addition, because stress is also related to this, it can affect the duration of healing.
Seborrheic dermatitis treatment can be used as treatment as your dermatologist gave. However, it is still recommended that you re-control after 1 week, so that the doctor can check your condition periodically.
Some of the causes that may also cause your condition include:
