Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for writing to us.
If its post burn leucoderma (ie there is decreased skin pigmentation without change in skin texture) you can expect response in your skin lesion. However if the skin at the area of burn has actually scarred( change in texture) then response might be sub optimal.
I would like you to upload an image of affected area as that would help me in examining the affected area and suggesting appropriate treatment. Please upload an image by clicking on upload report/image icon which is on right side of query page.
Hoping to hear from you soon.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXX,
I have seen the pics attached. I guess one pic was taken immediately after the burn and second pic shows the area after healing.
Had you been my patient, I would have advised
A good hydrating moisturiser like elovera lotion
Steroid cream like mometasone cream twice in a day( momoz/momate/dermanex)
Tacrolimus lotion/cream 0.01% twice in a day{ tacmod/tacrovin forte/tacrotor)

You may follow these suggestions for three weeks and get back for follow up.
Should there be any query please write back

hi

I was diagnosed for facial Seborrheic dermatitis which caused some hair loss in the mustache area just above the upper lip and was advised to use mometasone furoate solution which has treated the condition, but i have a tiny bald spot where i was affected. The doctor had told me to apply a certain tincture to stimulate hair growth in the affected region after ten days of applying the mometasone furoate solution. Unfortunately, my wife lost the prescription and I dont know what kind of tincture was prescribed. I currently reside in different city and I cannot consult the doc again, and neither can call the doctor cause I do not have the doctors phone number.

Therefore, I'd really appreciate if you could please advise me as to which tincture I should apply.

Regards,
Rick
