skin discoloration 7 yr old

My daughter has eczema. Her skin on her arms face are discolored, (ligtyer patches) which I believe maybe from her ointments (protopic) will her normal skin solor come back, most noticable the places she had her breakoouts. Is there anything I can get to help this, prescription, vitamins?

  • It will come back. It just takes awhile. U don't need to put anything on it. I speak from experience.

  • my son has a few of those discolored spots on his arm, back and chest. she probably had a slightly eczema break out (my son's was not visually noticeble) and got some sun on top of it. when her "tan" fads, they discoloration will as well.
