My husband has been dealing with this condition for months. It started suddenly. He developed white patches on his face that seems to be very flaky. The patches start out with a pinkish color and then turn white and flaky, after they are gone his skin is left a few shades lighter in the affected area. It is starting to spread to his scalp and behind his ears. He went to a doctor to get it treated but the doctor said it might be a yeast infection. He applied the creams the doctor prescribed it, but it only gave him temporary relief. He has been using extra virgin coconut oil on the affected areas and that really seems to help him, but it eventually comes back. Is there anything he can do to completely get rid of this? I'm hoping for something that will kill it at the roots!!
