    Did you take a picture? That would be helpful. White spots sometimes can be fungal infections called favus, while other times may be dry skin.

    I can't see your pictures very well due to the blurred pictures, but it does look possibly like favus on the face and comb. I would keep putting the antifungal cream on it daily or every other day. Lotrimin (clotrimazole) and miconazole (monistat 7) are good ones to use.

    That is possible. A lot of people use coconut oil for dry combs.
