I went to my doctors he said atopic dermatitis (eczema) but does any body know if her skin color will blend back in ?? And also her face is so much lighter than the rest of her body if any one knows anything please let me know thank you in advance

my grandson is half hispanic and has slightly tanned skin he developed white spots on his body. We were told the same thing,it eczema. I am a nurse and I did not agree so I researched a lot and what I found was allergy to salicylates which are found in fruits can cause skin discoloration. We took him off of mostly citric fruit and tomatoes and it really helped him. His skin cleared up. It might be worth trying to not give your baby foods with salicylates in it. I know fruits have it but you can look it on internet see what all has it in it. hope this helps.
