Good afternoon sir
  I introduce myself as Priya..I have developed white patches on my face especially on the cheeks and under the lips.Its been two months..I consulted my Dermatologist and he told me its because of sun exposure.He gave me the medication,but the patches are still persisting eventhough i take full protection from sun rays....
    Please suggest me the medication.

Hi,

Are you using a medicated sun screen?

What is your age? Since when have you noticed the lesions? For how long have you been on the medications?

It would be best to reconsult with your doctor to discuss whether the medications need to be continued or changed.

This could be persistent lesions due to sun exposure or some fungal infection or due to some mineral deficiencies in your diet.

Let us know about what your doctor advises.

You can use calamine lotion at the lesions till then.

Post us about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Regards.
