Daughter 10, light skin. Summer time get white spots in the face. What would you recommend?

Sunscreen: The white areas on her face likely represeent pitiriasis alba, a benign skin condition that involves such areas that do not take up sunlight as well as the surrounding skin. The tanning produced by more summer sun will amplify the difference between the involved skin and the normal skin next to it. Liberal use of a good sunscreen will reduce the effect of the sun. ...Read more

Pediatrician: This type of reaction to a facial bite is quite concerning and must be evaluated by your pediatrician or emergency room physician as soon as possible. Facial infection, if present, must be treated promptly and appropriately. Hopefully this is just a pronounced allergic reaction to the bite, but infection must be checked for. ...Read more

Not sure: Dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them. White spots can be a chronic SCAR from previously gouging the skin. These would be difficult to reverse. Changes in skin color also often occur with skin trauma. Difficult to reverse but less than scar.
Not having the eczema (treating it) for a long time would be a first step. ...Read more

Depends on variables: Did she pass out or express confusion after the injury? Has she started vomiting repeatedly? If either I would have her seen. If neither, let her sleep on her normal schedule.
