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?

There a pic of it

Okay thanks. I would therefore try Clotrimazole cream or ketoconazole shampoo for this.

U have seen the pic ?

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.
