Doctor Answers (1) on White patches around eyes
These are probably patches of dry eczema/atopic eczema/pityriasis alba. Tacrovera is a very safe medicine and can be used for 3 months. Eczemas respond differently with different patients. Moisturiser helps a lot. U may use tacrovera at night and repeated application of a moisturiser like Sebamed moisturising cream in the day time( 2 to 3 times). If it is itching she could use some antihistamines like levocetrizine. Eczemas also tend to be recurrent so daily use of a moisturiser is important. Also she should use a moisturising face wash or soap not regular baby soap or regular soap. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
