Few weeks now my 4month old son has had light

Customer Question

Hi .... For a few weeks now my 4month old son has had light patches around his mouth area . He's African American & has a darker shade of skin so the spots are quite noticeable
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.
Customer: Ummmm lets see ... The spots are only around his mouth ... I keep the area moisturized being that he's teething & druels a lot . The patches are pretty flat , not raised or anything & they don't flake .
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No I believe that sums it up ... Thank you
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
