Greetings. White patches on on the face could be due to sun allergy / pmle or due to pityriasis alba. Please see a qualified dermatologist for adequate evaluation and treatment. Use a good sunscreen daily in day time and moisturiser at bed time. Hope this helps. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards.
