Answer: Hello, most often the white spots on toddler’s face could be due to a condition called Pityriasis Alba. Children develop uneven round or oval patches, especially after sun exposure. The patches are dry with very fine scales. They are most common on the face (cheeks), neck, upper trunk, and upper arms of children. You can apply good moisturizer for the baby and this patch could also be due iron defiency also . I would suggest you to visit a paediatrian as well to know the exact reason . Hope it helps .

Question: My son is 2.5 months old and has lot of hair on his forehead. Please tell me how to get rid of this.
Answer: Babies develop lots of fine hair called lanugo on their skin while in the second trimster. Though most of it will shed before birth, some will still remain after birth for some babies. This will eventually fall off when she grows, there's nothing to worry. If you feel there's something abnormal about it, please take the suggestion of your doctor.
