  • It could be caused by candida, but it is most likely the beginning of vitiligo. In any case both are quite innocent diseases even tho Vitiligo is uncurable. Kiera

  • It's probably a fungus and he would need to get a RX from a dermatologist. He would leave the shampoo on for ten minutes and would need to do it every other day for about six weeks. Vitiligo does have a new medication out that makes the skin pigments reabsorb. He should see a dermatologist.
