Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

White patches with scaling are likely eczema related reaction.

Can be fungal infection as well.

You can try over the counter Clotrimazole and Hydrocortisone cream twice daily.

But do also get them checked by your doctor.

Not likely serious.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
