Bald patches on the cheek

Hi. I have light white patches at both the cheeks, those areas are so soft and feel the face is sticky after shaving. Sometime eyebrows and cheek are itchy. I have this for last 3 months. Can you suggest me what it could be. Thanks for you help.

Thanks
Dev

The thing is, there are many reasons for the occurrence of white patches on face. Primarily, the exact cause needs to be identified. My daughter had a similar problem on her cheeks due to leucoderma, a skin condition that results in de-pigmentation. She was undergone photo light therapy from a laser clinic in Toronto which was very effective. The results could be seen a few days after the treatment. It has been five months and no issues yet.
