Pityriasis Alba

How long does pityriasis alba last?

Pityriasis alba appears as indistinct white spots over the face of young children, usually those with a darker skin type. P.Alba is only a cosmetic concern.This condition may be associated with eczema and sensitive skin.  In fact, the spots will disappear on their own over time. Using moisturizers and certain creams can expedite the process.

However, it is important to distinguish P. Alba from vitiligo to ensure  proper treatment.  Please contact us if you have concerns about white spots appearing on your skin; we will be happy to arrange an appointment for you.
