Young son gets white patches on his face and hands?

White patches on the face can be caused by a condition called vitiligo, which is characterized by loss of pigmentation in the skin. Sun exposure can make vitiligo more noticeable and can also cause sunburn, which can lead to white patches on the skin. It is best to consult a dermatologist to confirm the cause of white patches on the face and to discuss treatment options.
