My newborn baby(1month) has a discoloured patch in her neck.

Customer Question
we noticed this on her...
My newborn baby(1month) has a discoloured patch in her neck. we noticed this on her 26th day since birth. It does not seem to have grown since then. We are not very sure if it is there since her birth though there is every possibility for that. The colour keeps on changing throughout the day and sometimes it's not that much visible. My mother in law has vitiligo. I just want to know whatis this patch? My PAED says its fungal infection and has prescribed Candid and Flutibact. Please help. Is it vitiligo/ birthmark/ fungal infection/ any other skin infection

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
