My son is 9yrs old, before three months he started to get pale patches on right thighs. After applying cream two patches became white. Please advice. Is it vitiligo?

This can be side effect of the cream leading to di pigmentation upon an already hypo functional skin pigment. It also can be Tinea or Ringworm fungal infection .It can be lichen atrophicus. A leprotic patch or even a pale hypo pigmented area surrounded by a mole. May be after all the above forms it can be a leucodermal or vitiligo patch.
