Pityriasis alba is a common skin condition mostly occurring in children and usually seen as dry, fine-scaled, pale patches on the face. It is self-limiting and usually only requires use of moisturizer creams.
The condition is so named for the fine scaly appearance initially present and the pallor of the patches that develop (while "alba" is latin for white, the patches in this condition are not totally depigmented)
The dry scaling appearance is most noticeable during the winter as a result of dry air inside people's homes. During the summer, tanning of the surrounding normal skin makes the pale patches of pityriasis alba more prominent.
Individual lesions develop through 3 stages and sometimes are itchy:
  1. Raised and red - although the redness is often mild and not noticed by parents
  2. Raised and pale
  3. Smooth flat pale patches

Since the reasons of hair & scalp problems are not mostly into the scalp area most of the external applications are not sufficient alone, to take care of chronic scalp infections. Therefore, diagnosis through nutritional, congenital, endocrinal factors remains the main aim at Valeda Wellness Centers. Along with these elimination of nervous causes, local bleaching factors and other causative factors are the basic line of treatment.
