My son is 1 yr 8 months old. I can see few(4) white patches on his cheek from last 2 weeks. I'm worried if he has any deficiency. Please help.

Hypopigmented patches on the face may be due to many causes but commonly due to earlier dryness or mild fungal infections, rather than deficiency. It's recommended to get a complete check up by a Pediatrician for diagnosis and treatment.
