my 5 year old son has developed small white spots on the top

Customer Question

my 5 year old son has developed small white spots on the top of both ears, initially just the one ear but has now spread. no relief with fusidin cream or a steroid cream given by his gp. we've tried anti fungal (canesten) but after a short time of success it returns. he also has developed a wart on his thumb ?related. the spots do not appear to cause pain and the spots do appear to be seperate from the cartilage.
note: he also has very soft, sometimes discoloured, offensive smelling stools.
