Hi,

  1. Desowen cream (Desonide), twice daily.
  2. Visit a dermatologist for intralesional steroid injection (ILS), it helps hair regrowth. It is given once in three weeks.
  3. Oral zinc supplement, tablet Zinfate, once daily for a month.

Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines after their consent.
