Pityriasis Alba .... Emollient and multivitamins would suffice Regarding deworming what sir (Dr.Giridhar ) mentioned ..... Antihelminthics like albendazole can be started well before 2 years ( just that the dose gets 200 instead of 400 what we prescribe for >2 years)

Pitryasis alba, no treatment unless very obvious as it recurrs n remits every 2_ 3 mths.Can apply mild steroidal cream 1% hydrocortisone cream.

Pityriasis alba.emollients, if required mild steroids eumosome.
