Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
I am sorry to hear this. The most likely cause is fungal, it doesn't however need to spread for this to be the case.
Have you tried any treatment so far?
Okay thanks. I would therefore try Clotrimazole cream or ketoconazole shampoo for this.
Yes thanks, ***** ***** two weeks this doesn't allow for hair re growth, I would start a topical steroid but also request a referral into a local dermatology service as I would suggest a biopsy to get a formal diagnosis if not.
The ketoconazole shampoo and clotrimazole can be purchased from the pharmacy without a prescription.
That is my pleasure, Clotrimazole, top right.
