Facial White Patch and hand wrinkly

My sil is 30 yrs old and doesnt have any health problems. She has noticed a light white patch on her cheek. It has been there for a few months now and hasnt increased in size either. It is also not itchy.

Her one hand also tends to hurt at times and then the skin of that hand gets all wrinkled. What could be wrong??

Thank you

Dear Aya
She should rather see her doctor - the white patch could be a fungus infection. The hand symptoms are too vague for me to really give you a proper answer
